Former Location –
Once a very popular club site for the late-night set. Don’t blink when you drive by as it is very easy to miss.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Weezer, Jane’s Addiction, X, The Romans, Hole, Tua Nua, 4 Non Blondes, The Pixies and Nirvana all hit their stage in the ’80s, and by the early ’90s, it was the hottest Hollywood rock venue this side of the Whisky.
Notable Acts That Played At Club Lingerie:
August 10, 1994 – Red Hot Chili Peppers
July 6, 1994 – Weezer
February 14, 1994 – Korn
February 11, 1994 – Melissa Etheridge
September 21, 1993 – Sublime
September 8, 1993 – Courtney Love
August 20, 1993 – Love
June 2, 1992 – Rage Against The Machine
The original version of the Club closed in April 1995 after they brought in a lot of hip-hop acts and several fights broke out after shows. Soon afterwards, the club started losing money and because of the ensuing violence, the police got involved and the owners decided to shut it down.

I loved that venue, first discovered it for a post show party after the Rocky Horror Picture Show live stage production down the street at the Aquarius Theatre. Later on I saw many a great concert there, everything from Berlin to Cindy Alexander.
I was a security guard there for a year in 1984 , I had a wife and a two year old so I had to sell cocaine to the beautiful people at the club lingerie to make ends meet.it was an exciting musical venue, 1984 what a different time. M.j.b.
Were you there when Jack Mack Played?
Too bad I missed that scene, busy learnin’ how save the world in the 🏴☠️streams that have just been around forever in my world….I’ll dig the photos, I’m sure, esp the line up between Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Courtney Love. Funny but Heather The Zarilla Williams @Chez106.1fm Ott, Can TD announced Kurt and Courtney appeared for the first time on stage together @clublingerie, not credited herein in top of G-search, but weirdly bcast in a voice not typically hers in her voice work, seemed like a brick insert, in her today in rock segment, prerecorded for her time slot, whether there or not. Hope to see all sooner rather than later, esp in San Diego where I have a show cooking with Tom Waits and Lucky Peterson. Fun, fun, fun@HeartAttack&Vine.
I love this club I celebrated my 30th birthday February 28th 1988. Date “Beau” surprised me by taking me to this venue and we were seated up front and in walked four men one of them was Neil Young and Beau told them that it was my birthday and Neil Young said, “Let’s buy that lady a drink!” and he did.
I saw Throwing Muses there in June 1988.
I loved hanging out at the Lingerie. I caught Galaxie 500 among many others there.
My name is Dennis…worked the door with Big Charlie as my backup and Melvis worked the register. I came to The Lingerie from The Whisky in ’84. Gorgeous girls, great bands, and always a party. Never a dull moment. Those were the daze!
I loved this place. Saw the Minutemen there, Dream Syndicate, Rank N File, Dwight Yoakum, Social Distortion … I liked it much more than The Whiskey. Only place that compared was Al’s Bar, but that was place a different vibe. And an airplane sticking out the side of the front too.
Great place to dance and meet chicks!
One of my favorite memories of the early 80’s. Saw an awesome band there that played a lot like the ‘Busboys’ if it wasn’t them. Great time!! Lots going on in those days.
Turned out my dad owned this place. Kurt Fisher. 23andMe.com DNA site confirmed it. Does anyone have photos of him?
My dad owned this place.
My dad owned this place. So who are you? You have a 1/2 brother, brother. What’s your mom’s name?
I was there in October 1981. Visiting from NJ with a friend & his West Hollywood cousin. 3 out of 4 of us were gay (the NJ friend had no idea) Had a great time but don’t remember much, I lost contact with all of them.
Funny thing, all these bands listed passed through Maxwell’s in Hoboken NJ were I worked from 1985 to 95…
I performed there with the Cannibal & the Headhunters (and original singer Frankie Garcia) on 2 consecutive nights back in 1982. The opening act was Los Lobos and it was a packed house. Even LA Times Rock critic Robert Hilburn covered it in the next day’s paper. It was a blast but was hot as hell in there.
I found a video of the performance and was shocked to see that of the 10 band members, half are dead. Dang.
saw the red hots, fear and circle jerks there in 1984. Wild show.
I was there every Thursday for the bands in the 90’s.
My roommate dated the door guy at the time who was Jacob Dylan. (Bob Dylan’s son)
I saw, Nirvana, Hole, Rage Against the Machine, Beck, L7, Luna Chicks, Sonic Youth, X, and so many others.
