Hip hop nightclub in Los Angeles

An east side institution that plays host to the world-renowned club night Low End Theory, The Airliner in Lincoln Heights is a Grade A dive bar with cheap beer, a killer sound system and crowd that isn't pretending. Hollywood scenesters and girls in high heels will hate this place - but those looking for a low-key hangout with great music and a chilled-out crowd will appreciate The Airliner. The gritty venue has two bars, one upstairs and one downstairs, along with a small kitchen that pumps out churros and French fries. You'll also find a large outdoor area and upstairs smoking balcony, and since The Airliner has no backstage, guest performers always just hang out outside with the rest of the crowd. On Wednesday nights, The Airliner is home to Low End Theory, a popular club night famous for experimental electronic music and hip hop - the epicenter of the Los Angeles beat community. The club's immense sound system will turn your brain into mush, and the talented artists attracted to this venue belie its lowly dive bar stature. The Airliner's crowd is young (18+), diverse and in general, out for the music more than to see and be seen.
