From what I understand and have heard, La Bon has more than its share of LOUD parties. I was at dinner at a friends house two blocks away and we could hear the music from a party over on La Bon. I remarked on the noise and my friend said "Oh, that's just La Bomb going off", which summed it up pretty perfectly. I looked at a house there when I first moved down to the area and none of them looked livable. I certainly didn't want to end up living on a shady street, and I'm glad I followed my gut feeling. I wasn't sure how to rate the "nightlife" category because there certainly is a lot of it, but I'm not sure if it's good or not.. so I put average.
