The Dresden

Best Bar House Act, August 2015

Hair metal? Came and went. G-funk? A relic. But marty & elayne, the headlining duo at the Dresden, are L.A. constants. For 34 years the crooners have held court at the Los Feliz lounge, playing jazz standards along with their kitschy cover of “Stayin’ Alive” (immortalized in the film Swingers). Marty’s Sinatra-Lite vocal stylings and Elayne’s jazz scat have provided the soundtrack to everything from birthday parties to double dates; the twosome can be either the main attraction or pleasant background music, depending on where you sit.
