28. Take A Date To Luna Or Wayne Harper's Martini Club



If you're lucky enough to be wooing someone who prefers authentic ambience and an eclectic scene over velvet ropes and bottle service, date nights in the intimate confines of Luna (6740 San Pedro Ave.) and Wayne Harper's Martini Club (8507 McCullough Ave.) are written in the stars. Existing in an odd Twilight Zone between local landmarks and best-kept secrets, both nightspots lure college kids, lounge lizards and a little bit of everything else to unassuming strip centers near North Star Mall — but the similarities end there. While Luna hosts live jazz, blues and soul acts (Wednesday-Saturday), the Martini Club showcases the impressive talents of owner/vocal impressionist/multi-instrumentalist Wayne Harper, who interprets classics by the likes of Neil Diamond and Elvis backed by a live band (Friday-Saturday).
