  • "You're so money & you don't even know it." You're on Swingers turf! This is where Trent encouraged Mike to meet the Starbucks waitress at the bar. Marty & Elayne still perform here nightly!
  • The fried artichoke hearts are good appetizers....and of course the steaks are good as well -
  • At The Dresden Room you get a great discount when presenting the KCRW Fringe Benefits Card!
  • It's all about Marty and Elayne, they're getting old but they still know how to rock. Bartenders have been here since before Elvis died and so have the light fixtures but that's part of the appeal.
  • This location started serving Italian food as Puccis in 1934. Bookie Herman Byron bought it in 1940 and named it The Dresden Room after his penchant for Dresden brand wallpaper and dinnerware.
  • see Marty and Elayne. Some things you have to see for yourself. two drink minimum last I was there, but no cover. Come early for a table
  • The Dresden opened in 1954, and its stunning, unchanged dining room will immediately remind you that Rat-Pack-dominated 50s was the coolest decade ever.
  • Live music, dark
  • Cool scene, awful service
  • Don't request Great Balls of Fire! I did, it was denied, and I cried.
  • Come for the boozy drinks... skip the food.
  • "Dimly lit and old fashioned in the best sense, with brickwork, chandeliers, and a lounge, youll listen to jazz playing as youre waited on by friendly and accommodating staff at your booth or table.
  • Stepping into the Dresden is like walking into a time capsule, with Marty and Elayne providing the soundtrack. If you've seen the movie SWINGERS, you'll recognize the decor in a heartbeat.
  • Order the Blood & Sand. I have no idea what is in it, but it is fantastic! Watch out, though... They're lethal!
  • Get the house drink. Its super fruity and potent
  • Go to the bathroom and hear people screwing in the stall...
  • Packed on fri-sat. Sunday night very empty. If you sit at a table by the bar expect a order minimum if there is live music
  • Essential LA experience - come when Marty & Elayne are performing!
  • Marty & Elayne 4ever
