Lonely Planet review

Legendary comics including Woody Allen, Robin Williams and Phyllis Diller clawed their way up from underground at this grotto nightclub. Recently, comics have been taking back the stage from lackluster lounge acts, and the club's enjoying a renaissance – Zach Galifianakis shot an excruciatingly funny comedy special here. Bookings are sporadic; see online event calendar.
