A fun bar on Sunset. Full of an eclectic mix of partiers based on the bands of the night. Some of the biggest bands have played surprise shows at this 250person venue. Surprisingly good mix of booze behind the bar, but normal Hollywood prices, which tend to run high. Most bands are Rock, Goth, Punk, Industrial, Metal, etc, so the... More

Visited the Viper room due to its legendary status and it was a really fun night out. We visited and watched Bravo Delta, Future Villains and Dead End Sky. Sound quality is superb and there is a great ambience in this venue. Only drawback for me was the cost of drinks. Granted it is on the sunset strip but you'll... More

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
