This longtime Hollywood bar has always been a rock & roll mainstay, but it also hosts frequent comedy and theatrical revues, including the ongoing "Point Break Live," a comedic parody of the old Keanu Reeves film. Other entertainment ranges from drum-&-bass nights, jello wrestling and "Rebel Fucking Bingo" to burlesque and "Natalie Fabia's Hooker Pageant." The Buzzcocks, the Spazmatics and Abby Travis are among the many performers who've appeared on the Dragonfly's stage. A large painting of a temptress with large dragonfly wings dominates the backdrop of the stage and serves as the club's logo, while a long wooden bar runs along one side of the room. Large mirrors on the walls give the club a sense of Tinseltown elegance and opens up the dark space. In total, the Dragonfly has four full bars operating, especially on busy weekend nights. There's also a brick-walled back patio for those looking for a breath of fresh air and a rare glimpse of a different kind of Hollywood stars. Full bar. Ages 21 & up.
