Few places in the country can honestly say that they adequately capture the flavor of a particular location. The truth is that once the sunset, people want to get dirty, and we just help them indulge. Harvelle's takes pride in showcasing the best live Blues, R&B, Soul, Jazz, Burlesque Shows, and so much more. Our crown jewel is the Toledo show, there's really nothing quite like it. A mix of all the best talents the area has to offer, all in one place. No one has quite a good time as Harvelle's!

An insider tip if you want to enjoy really life music played from jung and great bands. Drinks are reasonably priced too. Be prepared to an intensive and genuine experience.

Come especially on Sundays or Thursday! Live acts here have been playing for 20 years or more, never fails to impress! Come with friends, or come solo, you are guaranteed to leave with new friends :) A modern day speakeasy come to life.

We went on a Sunday night and there happened to be a very famous jazz singer performing that night! The performance was great, there was limited seating which made it difficult to see. Cover was $10, drinks were average we thought for LA. Warning: if...More

Small and intimate but rockin' at the same time. Get up close and dance or bounce or hang back with a drink and just enjoy.. Comfortable enough to go by yourself too.

The place, energy, people, live music, reasonably priced drinks and of course the Blues is what has made this place my new favorite spot. Looking for a great time? Visit Harvelles!

We've wanted to check out Harvelle's for many years after seeing their low budget cable TV commercials. So, fast forward 10 years and we spontaneously found ourselves here after dinner in search of good live music. We happened to arrive right before the show started...More

roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles

there's really no set dress code that I'm aware of but most men wear collared shirts and women jeans to dresses. as its a very small club a sweatshirt may be too hot.
