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

quite ok place, if You manage to look beyond those 350 pound bouncers. Then You are free to do whatever You want, that means whatever your nose desire. There is no California smoking Laws or any other Laws for that matter inside there. So its full on rockn roll all night long any Way You dig to do it. Only... More
