The 50 Best Concert Venues in America

50. Grand Star Jazz Club

City: Los Angeles
Address: 943 North Broadway
Capacity: 300
Coolest Feature: The outdoor patio

The Grand Star Jazz Club has held Chinatown down since 1946. It began as a restaurant, then became one of the hottest concert venues in L.A., catering to everything from hip-hop to jazz music. The two level establishment has a bar on each floor and a patio area that can hold up to 100 people. During the Complex decade, the second floor was dominated by Firecracker, drawing L.A.'s hip-hop fans for Friday nights of dancing with reckless abandon.
