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

We paid quite a bit to see the show in a tiny little room. The bar was fine but there was no where to sit. They only had VIP tables that were WAY out of our price range. Typical rock/metal venue.

I have wanted to visit the Viper Room for years now and finally I was there last week! I didn't really know what to expect. The place was smaller than I had imagined, but it was a very cool place with painted black walls and a rock n' roll atmosphere. The bar staff were very friendly and the cocktails were... More

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 !

Staying in West Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
