The weather was cool. I wore nice dress and wrap. Flip flops not acceptable - dressy casual kind of place.star this tip starred
The show was great. However we didn't enjoy the experience. We missed the fine print about MANDATORY 2 drinks or a dinner purchase per person. It took a while to get a menu (which didn't look exciting) and some water. Most guests were getting just drinks. So I got a beer, my friends got coffee and mineral water ( they don't drink). The waiter didn't come to our table until 08:39 with " I'm bringing your bill, anything else?" "No, thanks", we replied. He left a bill much higher than what we ordered and without a word of explanation. To answer our question he just flipped the little card on the table with "Catalina Bar and Grill" on it and reveal the fine print about mandatory 6 drinks we didn't purchased. He also informed us that kitchen is already closed but we could get more drinks since we are paying for them. We didn't. We left upset. Great music, horrible service and very weird deal coming from Goldstar. What do your tickets actually cover?star this tip starred
we ate at Chan Dara and parked up there, about a 10 min walk...

There is metered parking and $6.00 self parking available. I tried the Metro and enjoyed the short 0.4 mile walk in the balmy evening. Try it if the Metro is convenient. Also you might like the street fair atmosphere of Hollywood Blvd... for a few seconds at least...star this tip starred
