I recently went to Romeo Chocolates kickstarter (kickstarter link) event party. At the event, I won a raffle drawing for a gift basket that included a gift certificate to The Brass Lamp located in the heart of Downtown Long Beach, CA.
The Brass Lamp Bar is a book bar and lounge. It also started off as a kickstarter project one year ago. This is a great location for study groups, book clubs, meetings, or to hang out with friends. There are also plenty of different events happening here which includes live music, open mic, and Wine & Cheese Tastings. Just make sure you check their calendar for event schedule.
