I'm not sure why the rating is so low at Create. I go to a lot of shows and after coming here to see Yellow Claw, I have to say, it's now one of my favorite venues. Everything is so easily accessible, they have ushers constantly keeping the aisles clear. Plus, they have a smoking patio with a no-wait bar where you can easily hear the set. Not to mention the fact that you walk right past the DJ to access it! I can't speak for the club on normal operating conditions, but I can say I would come back to see a show with excitement. The crowd here seemed to be more laid back and concerned about your experience rather than a BS Vegas club experience where you have to wear uncomfortable clothes to see an overpriced show. Great job guys!
I go to this club quite often. They tend to have the guest list before 11 PM deal. Just make sure that you are IN LINE and maybe towards the front by 11 PM to guarantee free entry. I did once come here and the line was all the way to the end and could not get into the club since it was packed. This was for the DJ, What So Not, by the way. It was also the week after EDC so maybe many people had EDC withdrawals and so overall there was a huge turnout at the clubs over the weekend. It's a possibility. I like the outdoor area since you can socialize and there's a lot of space to just sit down. The indoor area is spacious, but I would say that Exchange LA is a bit more spacious? I don't often frequent into the hip hop room but I believe it is a nice place. The crowd's not bad, either. And, the lineup is pretty good. Comparable to Exchange LA.
