It is the place where The Beatles met with Jayne Mansfield. At a press conference when they landed Paul had expressed a wish to meet her, and one of their “peeps” set it up, not, as they would have preferred, in a more intimate setting, but in a booth in the noisy club. But it all went well, and they took some great photos.

Pre-Covid days, it was always listed as a 24 hour joint, with good food, great music, booze of your choice, including, of course. Whisky. Oh, and be sure to have your ID to prove your age if you want to drink alcohol. This applies to all drinking establishments in America. The Legal age is 21 in most States, but 18 in a few. It’s always best to check with your tour people or hotel Concierge.

Since the 60’s, The Whisky has been a massive tourist attraction. Crowds outside day and night, and if you are looking for a lively night (or early morning), this has always been the place. Call them to check on their current opening hours.

It’s a once in a lifetime experience, but earplugs are always a good idea.

There is parking behind the Whisky, and you may even get lucky enough to find a spot on Sunset, but don’t hold your breath.
