In the past decade, Good Hurt has become West Los Angeles' longest-running live rock nightclub. Its fiery red interior creates an appropriately lurid mood for a wide range of music, from funk and indie rock to techno and reggae. The club's weekly Medicinal Mondays showcase features a "Rock & Pole" show in which beautiful dancers twist and contort themselves suggestively and athletically around a pole to the live accompaniment of the house band Big Lovin' Panda. Adding to the bar's sexy vibe, waitresses dress up in nurses' uniforms to serve special drinks like the Transfusion. Vintage posters of cultural icons like Marvin Gaye and Pam Grier adorn the club's red walls alongside mounted white first-aid kits, and a bright neon sign emblazoned with the word "Prescriptions" hangs prominently over the full bar to beckon patrons who need a shot of salvation. Street parking available. Ages 21 & over.
