Opened in December of 2009, bluewhale is a live jazz club, art gallery and bar located in the heart of Little Tokyo, Los Angeles. Since its opening, bluewhale has been about one thing; providing the highest level of live music for true music lovers in an innovative space boasting an intimate, yet sophisticated design. The brainchild of jazz vocalist Joon Lee, bluewhale has become the goto venue for the best creative musicians, young as well as established, to showcase their latest projects.
The space is organized in two areas; the performance space and bar area. The unconventional, free seating arrangement in the stage area provides an intimate environment for both musicians and fans. Helped by the uniquely designed tilting boxes in the ceiling, the acoustics of the room have been praised by musicians and fans alike.
The bar offers a great selection of drinks, including hand selected small batch bourbons, whiskeys, scotch, classic as well as modern cocktails and rotating craft beers on tap. Bluewhale also offers a small menu of farmers market driven, made from scratch dishes. For a full list of drinks and food available please click here.
