When you’re looking for a live music experience minus the smoke and alcohol, opt for a venue that caters to the creativity of the community. The Smell, a 10-year old concept, hosts live music, covers its walls in local art and throws many all-ages shows. If you want to take your special someone on a date that is memorable, without the nasty hangover, The Smell is a great option. Besides the great shows, beautiful art and friendly staff, there’s a vegan snack bar to satiate specific appetites. This DIY space not only supports the community, but also considers every artist, musician, staff member and patron – family – and it shows. Your date will appreciate trying something new, and experiencing music from a completely different vantage point.
Make your way to the somewhat hidden, off-the-beaten path venue in a vehicle that will make the drive pleasant for you and your date. A 2013 C63 AMG Coupe from Mercedes-Benz of Encino couples well-crafted beauty and precise handling, making for an all around perfect drive.
