Glad to say I've been there.

This was a bit of a bucket list item for some in our group. We had to pay a pretty penny to get in, and I'm not sure it was worth it, but at the very least, it was unique. We... read more

This was a bit of a bucket list item for some in our group. We had to pay a pretty penny to get in, and I'm not sure it was worth it, but at the very least, it was unique. We ended up hanging out in the downstairs bar area where it was a more low key atmosphere. They actually... More

We did the typical tourist thing and went to the viper room paid a $12 cover got a terribly made drink listened to a couple of bands with bad acoustics and sound. So yeah we had a great time and it is a typical dive bar but worth the stop to get a t-shirt

Iconic rock pub you'll be sorry to miss. Small, charming and live music - a great and unique atmosphere! Our first taste of LA music venue - and we loved it!

Who doesn't like the Viper Room? Yeah, drinks are a little too pricey, but it's on the boulevard. I've been at least two dozen times and everyone is always friendly, the sound is always decent and I always have a good time. I typically stay away from Sunset unless I'm seeing live music, but I'll always come to shows here.... More

A must see if you're a rock fan. Places like this define L.A. Don't pass this club by. When you're in luck, you might actually see a band you enjoy, though that's subordinate to the overall experience.

From our 3 week trip to the US, this was a personal highlight. My music collection is still full of 90s US bands and when I found out we were staying just round the corner, I had to check it out. It was also their 21st anniversary and Friday night with Palo Alto and an amazing collaboration with members from... More

Went to the viper rooms on a Tuesday night, to watch a band, was very small, and very dark, just what I was expecting! No seating unless you pay for a VIP booth. Drinks were reasonably priced and very strong, and the bar staff were friendly. Good famous sunset venue for watching music, we watched a band called Teenage Exorcists... More

Went specifically to see a band and had a fun night. It's not the most legendary strip venue but it's still a pretty cool place. The sound and the set-up for the bands was good and the drinks were surprisingly reasonable - was expecting it to be expensive and it wasn't. Only downside is, it's tiny and there is no... More
