Fri. 2/15: DJ El Dopa back at The Wellesbourne in West LA, 10p-2

Well I guess they dug the El Dopa style last week so I’m back this Friday to drop some beats at The Wellesbourne. It can get pretty crowded with “20- and 30-somethings” lining up outside as early as 10p (no cover charge, though). It has a 19th century old English manor theme going, as far as the decor is concerned. The music will be a bit more up-to-date ;) The Wellesbourne has 3 areas, including a library with real books and a foosball table. The hand-crafted cocktails are something to write home about, too. 21+ No cover. Music starts at 10pm. 10929 W. Pico Blvd. in West LA.
