I would give The Gaslite 10 stars if I could. I am a black man in a wheelchair, and I started coming to The Gaslite in 1998, when the owner Claire, first booked J.J. "Bad Boy" Jones to play the blues. The Gaslite has been like my second home ever since. Claire and the bartenders always make me feel at home, and it's my favorite place to sing karaoke and dance in my wheelchair.

The best place for a fun night in Santa Monica! Most bars in Santa Monica are filled with sleepy quiet people not looking to get crazy. This bar is actually fun and filled with fun people. Always a good time.

Although I am on The East Coast I hear very good things about this place from a certain brother of mine who is out there in Santa Monica. His name is Travis Everett but he goes by the Karaoke Stage name KJ Trav Loaf. He is a dead on

ORRIBLE KARAOKE FRIDAY NIGHTS - APRIL 2011

Had read some decent reviews of GasLite elsewhere, so gave it a shot, Friday night April 15, 2011.

WHAT A COMPLETE SHOCKING DISAPPOINTMENT.

It was the worst karaoke place I've ever been to. It's small, crowded, and the guys who work there are unfriendly. We signed up to sing a song and waited 3 hours, and when it finally was our turn the guy who worked there stole it from us

This place is one of the best Karaoke bars in LA. It seems to be always packed by 9:00pm or earlier.

The crowd is completely random and fun. Both times I went I was completely entertained the entire time. The drinks are reasonably priced and it has a very dive feel to it.

You can tell the regulars as it seems the get priority when it comes to singing. My group had a hard time actually getting called up on stage.

If your on the West Side of town I would suggest stopping in.

Pros: Awsome people watching

Cons: Good luck if you want to sing

This place is a total dive, but a great place to gi with a bunch of friends, throw one back, and laugh your ass off. If you're looking for a place to have a good time on the westside, it definitely deserves STRONG consideration.

I took some friends here on a Saturday night and although there was no crowd outside, the bar was packed once we got inside. We eventually fought our way through to a bar and got some drinks but getting on the karoake list was out of the question. We had fun but if I go again then I might choose a weekday to go.

A decent place for karaoke, however waitresses/bartenders are often downright rude. After giving $1 tip per beer for 7 beers and then skipping once, the bartender told me my next beer would cost $1 extra due to my lack of tip. I strongly suggest picking up a 6 pack at walgreens across the street rather than paying $7 for a bottled beer at this place.

I don't know what santamonicacares on this site is talking about! The Gaslite has the best karaoke in santa monica. Sounds like you are a bitter person who doesn't know how to project into a mic.
The KJ's rock (especially the chicks!!!!) Great in between music and they are so fun!! RUN to this place...it ROCKS!

This is a great bar if you want a drink and don't want to fight a crowd. Although it draws a friendly, local group of people (college and up), it never seems too full and is completely without attitude. I have had my birthday party here on a Sunday and it was so much fun! We practically had to whole place to ourselves and since there is karoake every night we all got up atleast 3 times.

Okay, so let me say that the Gas Lite IS awesome. It's open a 6am, it's small, they have free popcorn and a few good bartenders. They also have karaoke.

The problem is that many UCLA students have taken over so it can be a bit trendy and less divey. The time to go is on spring break when all the kids have gone home. The place gets packed though. The karaoke is cool but the facilitator not so much. She tends NOT to stick to the list (letting everyone bribe their way to the top-- or just make friends with her), she doesn't adjust the mic so often you can't hear the singer. Look, I love the place-- but good management could make a few tweaks to make it better.

The Gas Lite is one of the best dive bars I have ever been to! They have the same staff working every week so you can really get to know them. Fun and flirty, the bartender Miranda makes a stiff drink. It's a karaoke bar that's open almost 24 hours and always has fun karaoke dj's. The only food they serve is popcorn but with a little tabasco tastes awesome when you're drunk! Parking on site and cabs make it easy to get to and from this place.

The bar is a Westside legend and the staff is cool. "Open at 6:00 a.m."! At the same time, if you're looking to sing go anywhere else for Karaoke.

The KJ is the absolute worst in West LA. She not only bumps anyone else when her friends show up, but she also mics her buddies up while she drops the levels for everyone else to barely audible. It is a total Karaoke embarassment. There's just too many good Karaokes around Santa Monica to allow yourself to be treated as poorly as the Gaslight's KJ treats anyone who doesn't make her "friend" list.

I'm from the midwest and only have occasion to get to LA once in awhile. Have been in LA 3 times in the last 5 or 6 years. Went to this place first in '00, '03 and '05. Found the Gas Lite first time...made sure I got back every time since. Classic neighborhood bar with a mixed patronage...all ages, so as one of the "older" crowd, I didn't feel the least bit out of place. I miss Melora, behind the bar, but the karaoke is great...all patrons are friendly and approachable. Drinks are reasonably priced. If you're a singer, go early, sing often...gets crowded later. Next time I'm in LA, I'll be back at the Gas Lite.

Went on a Thursday night, signed up our songs at 9:30 PM. By 12:30 only the one female in our group had gotten to sing. During that time, the same three nineteen year-old women sang at least 3-4 times each. One "regular" arrived at 12:00 and was on stage by 12:15. All this time the DJ, obviously lying through his teeth, was claiming he was "just going down the list." The karaoke was badly mixed, the songs between the karaoke were twice as loud as the karaoke songs. What a terrible disappointment given the glowing reviews here. By the way, the crowd is also all frat boys with baseball caps on backwards and their dim witted female friends -- so be warned.

We got there early, so saw a dingy neighborhood bar with red lights and tinsel...but by 10 p.m., we were lucky we got there early and had a table! What a mix of people! What great singers and what....people of character! Fabulous singers mixed with "just folks", college co-eds with older folks, and everyone was having a blast. Great singers were lauded, as were the merely the brave and bold. Fun dancing too, solo, couples, or groups. Decent drink prices too! Definitely going back soon.
