niXon Bar + Lounge

Downtown LA is known for great food, thrilling nightlife and events, and a
culture of cool you just won’t find anywhere else. And at the center of it all, is
niXon Bar + Lounge.
Located on the second floor of the Luxe City Center Hotel just steps from LA
Live, niXon Bar + Lounge is everything you want in a Downtown LA spot — a
comfortable outdoor patio, a great location and a laid-back atmosphere.
niXon is an urban lounge where people kick back to drink craft beer and
specialty cocktails and take in the vibe of Downtown LA from the outdoor patio.
Overlooking Downtown LA, a beautiful fountain, a fire pit, and cabanas, niXon
is stylish, sleek, and comfortable. Cool, but not pretentious. The kind of place
you feel at ease just watching the game with your friends, taking in some
entertainment, or checking out some special events.
It’s a great place to hang out before, after, or during everything Downtown LA
has to offer.

"We walked up to a busy bar/patio which looked promising and nice. There wasn't a hostess stand, so I grab a server and asked about my reservation. He said that he had to look for the manager - who never showed up. While waiting for the manager, I was checking for other restaurants availability and realized that I couldn't cancel my reservation since it was already during our reservation time. The server was running around and apologized that he couldn't get the manager. He managed to find a table for us but it was obvious that they were overwhelmed and did not have the manpower to serve all their guests. We sat and waited and with no one in sight that was going to serve us, we got up and left. It was as if we were never there but now we had nowhere to eat because I couldn't make another reservation on OpenTable on this crazy busy night at LA Live."

"I rarely write reviews on Open Table, but this experience was so bad I feel that I need to warn others. Basically, Nixon is just a bar, with a seating area where food is served. When we arrived, there was no greeter or anybody else to acknowledge our reservation. In short, the fact that they take reservations is a complete sham. Anyhow, we then found a table and seated ourselves. MORE THAN 30 MINUTES LATER, I was able (with vigorous arm motions) to flag down the harried waitress (who was tasked with handling the entire dining area by herself) so we could place our order. After another long delay, featuring several apologies from the waitress, our food finally showed up, with the wrong items. (I ordered a burger, but got a pizza.) My overall impression was that this place was very poorly managed."
