Mavericks Flat Review
The rebirth of a historic nightclub first opened in 1966 and still a community treasure. Its not an exaggeration to call Mavericks Flat the Apollo Dinner Club of the West Coast. After the confusing entrance, take 5 minutes in the lobby to review vintage photos of artists who have performed here; custom mirrors on the ceiling and wall add acoustic flection to the music from the front stage; mezzanine section in the rear often hosts private parties.
The second floor is an upscale restaurant and outdoor cafe equivalent to those on Sunset Strip. There is an extensive wine selection of Cabernets, Pinots and Merlots. Even the restrooms are polished with attention to detail everyone. The owners are to be commended for investing a couple million dollars upgrading this classic nightclub and restaurant in Leimert Park.
