It's just like the song says, "everyone knows your name."
Carbon is owned by two guys (Jason & Adam) who had a dream of making a little hole in the wall the place to be seen, hang out with friends and be around a cool and?á a mellow crowd.
No velvet ropes, no passwords, no crazy lines and outlandish cover charges and valet that cost more then the drinks inside the bar.
Just a bar where people could come hang out, get a good drink and listen to some dope music.
Carbon has been around for seven years and like all bars at first it was a rough crowd.
What makes this bar different from all the other bars?
First off it's not pretentious like "Hollywood nor the West side."
They don't have the same DJ's every night...
In fact even on an off night you might stop by and catch a legendary beat junkie on the 12twelves or Kid Rock.
The formats are a bit different but no matter what night Carbon is the place to hang out.
It's dark when you when walk in, dimly lit with a fully stocked bar. The bartender's are not only good looking but can actually pour a mean drink. What can you say about the door guys they look mean but hella' cool and polite yet stern.
