The Virgil

Order a Caipirinha to quench your thirst while grooving to the soulfully eclectic sounds of everything from Afro-Cuban rhythms to hip hop soul classics provided by your favorite DJ's and bands.

The Virgil has replaced Little Temple, as the east side hang out for those socialites seeking the soothing sounds of soul music. With a few upgrades in the scenery and drink selection this place has gone from urban grunge to urban sophistication but still manages to maintain its down-to-earth essence. With the 'b-side' and the 'stage-side', this place caters to both the neighborhood bar and weekend lounge crowd.

Lounge in Los Angeles

Once a place where the soul survivor's crowd sought out the sultry sounds of serenity in what was known as Little Temple has now been upgraded to The Virgil. Although the ownership, prices, and the musical vibe remains the same, the ambience has gone from urban grungy to the sensual sultriness of urban sophistication with the addition of a dazzling array of drinks, decor, and dim lighting.

Not to worry for all you purist that enjoyed the grunge, The Virgil still has a few elements of the old Little Temple which add to its overall mystique. There are far more places to sit but sitting is generally not what people do at this neighborhood lounge. The patrons come here to get lost in the groove.

That aforementioned groove is supplied on a weekly basis by a variety of LA's finest as well as visiting talent. With two rooms to satisfy your musical soul, The Virgil features the 'b side', that seems more like your neighborhood bar while the 'stage side' is more of the 'hit the dance floor' lounge/performance area. On most Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesday the local residents vibe out to their own selections on one the most diversely amazing jukeboxes on the planet. Thursday’s are reserved for DJ Who on the 'b side' supplying his weirdo O.C.D record collector's night, while the 'stage side' plays host to visiting live bands or djs from across the country. Friday night belongs to DJ Heather bringing the Dublab Dance experience. Saturdays feature KCRW's own DJ Anthony Valadez and his trusty MC sidekick, KG Superstar giving you a night of classic hip-hop, r&b, and soul. The Virgil is closed on Sunday and as they should be because after this weekly experience, you will definitely need a day to rest.
