11. Largo in Los Angeles

Five years ago, Largo – a club that had been booking young talent from John Mayer to comedians like Sarah Silverman and Zach Galifianakis since the early Nineties – moved into the former home of the Coronet Theatre, a legendary L.A. space where Charlie Chaplin and Orson Welles had performed. Today the club continues to showcase producer Jon Brion once every month, along with top comics such as Jeff Garlin and Reggie Watts. Says Fall Out Boy's Patrick Stump, "One of the coolest things is seeing the highbrow crowd a show there attracts: 'Holy shit, is that Jackson Browne?'"

Capacity: 130
Fun Fact: You can't talk or use your mobile phone during performances, but liveblogging on a laptop is perfectly acceptable.
