This was our first taste of LA music venue, and we were the last to leave, bands were good, drinks a little expensive, bar persons very fun.

I loved the viper room ! Although it does look like a bit of a black den but I loved the atmosphere. They had a fantastic band playing the night I went and there was some very cool people around. If you are not a band person and love your average nightclub scene then the viper isn't for you !

Small venue with a nice extended stage, great place to check out a band and be close to the stage. I liked sound system and the mix. I've checked out a few bands and played here a few times myself, and I enjoyed each outing. Beer is around $7 or $8 which is about average for sunset strip...M

I love smaller, more intimate venues for music- this one fits the bill!! I heard drinks are pricey (we didn't drink) it was crowded and hot (what concert isnt) but we were right in front of the stage for one of our favorite bands :) Parking lot is in back- do not street park (its a 2 hr limit)

This place is small, packed and full of rockers, very pleasing to still be able to go to a venue like this, the sound system was good and made for a proper rock night out with great live bands, staff were really nice too

Attended the Viper Room with my Dad on a break in LA as we were over to watch the UFC. The club is famous back home in England so we wanted to check it out. After a short 5 minute que (as oppose to 35 minutes in UK) we paid 12 dollars and entered. I thought the door staff might... More

I used to frequent The Viper Room back in 1993-1994 a lot. It was so vibrant, hot, happening and always exciting. I haven't been back for many many years, but my brother and I were intrigued by the idea of an STP cover band. We were told they started at 11, but of course when we got there, we were... More

It was somewhere I had always wanted to go mainly because of it's history and reputation, but to be completely honest I would not hurry back. Dark, creepy and overcrowded. Kind of disorienting and I remember having difficulty finding way out through staircase it was that badly lit. On a lighter note (No pun intended), their T-shirts are cool and... More

A great experience - we really enjoyed ourselves - top bands a definite - we read some reviews and didn't expect a very good reception and yet we found the complete opposite. I would recommend this venue to my friends. Worth the visit - drinks a we bit exy. Thanks for a good time Viper Room. PS. Been to the... More

So I went to the Viper Room... Owned by Johnny Depp etc. etc. I was curious to see what it was like. I stayed an hour and then left. I don't know what I was expecting, but I was pretty 'underwhelmed'. The venue is small and dark, and it was packed full of people watching some grunge band that I... More
