Nestled in the heart of West Hollywood, Largo at the Coronet on La Cienega Boulevard is the perfect place to see and be seen in Los Angeles. The club is famous throughout the area for their spectacular comedic and musical performances, as well as the performances of resident singer/songwriter Jon Brion.
Owner Mark Flanagan opened Largo in the early 1990s on Fairfax Avenue. The original venue offered a maximum capacity of 130 people. Having outgrown its capacity, Flanagan moved the club to its current location in 2008. The main room of the Largo at the Coronet Theater seats 280 people in traditional theater-style seating and the “Little Room” can accommodate 65. The Little Room also serves as a place for people to gather for beer and wine before and after the shows, and allows artists to offer smaller performances in a more intimate setting.
Largo at the Coronet is even more popular in its new location on La Cienega than it was on Fairfax Avenue. The shows typically contain a mix of music and comedy and are often attended by celebrities. The nightclub has a great ambiance, the acoustics are amazing and there is not one bad seat in the house. Ticket prices are quite affordable, so shows often sell out quickly. Anyone interested in attending a show at the Largo at the Coronet should buy their tickets early and arrive at the venue early to get a seating assignment. Parking in the area can be difficult to find, but the Largo does have its own parking garage.
The Largo has launched the careers of many musicians and comedians, including Tenacious D and Jack Black. The theater has also hosted a wide range of celebrity acts, including Russell Brand, Sarah Silverman, Ben Folds and Fiona Apple. Yelp gives Largo four stars.
