You want ambience? You want Class? You want Sophistication? You want to experience the better side of life? Well none of that will be found here... So yeah dont even bother... this is where those of us who live in the gutter or below it come to chill...
Pro Tip: The line sucks so bring a jacket if its chillie out as it can take an hour or two to get in unless you arrive early.
So what the hell is jumbos really? Its a bar with girls dancing on a small stage with a stripper pole that is maybe 8' high. No nudity, cheap drinks, lingerie, standing room only, full bar, paper raining down in the form of singles, and a few former strippers or pole dance aficionados swinging around and gyrating to rock and dance songs.
Pro Tip #2: If you are a yelper in LA and have not heard of jumbos, you are not really a yelper. If you havent been yet, you need to drag yo booty over there stat!
They have at least 15 beers on tap as well as a number of bottles available for consumption. They have a fully equipped bar ready for you to toss down some shots, grab a whiskey n rye on the rocks, or some frufru drink with fruit in it for those that like that kinda thing.
The attitude of all here is one of jovial happiness and its fun entertainment that is more burlesque than anything else that I can think of. It is obviously not your typical strip joint . However everyone who goes loves it. I think it is one of the seediest dive bars that I have been to, which is super funny since I dont think I saw a single seedy character while I was there. Seriously I didnt notice anyone with a porn stache, khakis or dockers, and a members only jacket at all... well except for m... OHN i wouldnt wear that if my life depended on it and I cant grow a stache unless I want to look like the biggest douche ever so yeah full beard, goatee, or clean shaven for me.
Regardless this institution is truly comical and provides for outstanding people watching. Hell I know a lot more women who have been here than men. Talk about a lil mixitup from the norm here... So check it out you will have an interesting time that is for certain... just beware the girls who are barely going through the motions, albeit most of them are having fun and worken it, some just are meh...Recommended for:

Make it rain dolla dolla bills y'all!! :)
Jumbo's Clown Room was part 3 of our Friday night debauchery. Some of my friends suggested coming here to experience some eye candy to end our night. I didn't know what to expect since I've never even step foot into a strip club, but i walked out pleasantly entertained!
When we arrived around 12pm, there was already a long line outside. There was a parking lot with valet parking but we got lucky and found street parking nearby in the residential area. The valet attendant kept suggesting for us to get a table for $20/each person for our group of 10 people to bypass the line. We decided against it and waited about 35 minutes to get in instead. Since we were the last group to be let in, we ended up staying until the end of the night for the last remaining shows. The place itself is very small and only holds a max of 40 people or so. There's seating around the stage and limited standing room. We were able to snatch a table for 4 of us.
Once the girls started coming out to perform, I realized it really wasn't as raunchy as I thought it would be.There was no nudity but the girls did dress in pretty provocative clothing, although it wasn't anything I've never seen before at regular dance clubs.
I admired how athletic some of these girls were during their performances. Some of them did some crazy tricks on the pole and we all admired in awe of their strength.
If you want to end your night admiring sexy girls on strip poles and want to avoid the raunchiness of an actual strip club, I'd definitely suggest Jumbo's! Plus what better way to end the night than making it rain dolla bills?Recommended for:

Took peoples advice and showed up early. Thank god we did! There was a line to get in 45minutes later! Because the place was small, they can't just let everyone in due to limited space.
This isn't a strip joint. Just pole dancers showing off their moves. Some were enthusiastic and some seemed like they were on auto pilot just there to make money.
valet or street parking
is recommended so get some dollar bills :)
Not raunchy, I didn't get creeped out by the peeps around me. All the pervy creepers are probably at strip joint.
Casual, like going to a hole in the wall bar.
The place is pretty small, you might get lucky and find a place to sit.
The awesome part is it's walking distance to harvard & stone. So once you're ready for something different then check out some burlesque dancers few feet down the street.Recommended for:
