Great Food, Cool Atmosphere

Step back into rock n' roll history at this Strip icon. Here Elvis, Mick, McCarthey all are reputed to have frequented this legendary bar and grill. Inside its stained glass is classic psychodelic 60s.

I've always wanted to go to Rainbow Bar and Grill since I've seen the place on the Guns N' Roses videos (November Rain and Estranged). But this is just part of the excitement. The place that was founded in 1972 with a party for Elton John and received/receives people from the caliber of John Lennon, Keith Moon, Dio, Lemmy, Motley... More

I finally got to see and visit The Rainbow. Our friend Lisa is a regular there and met us when we arrived into town. She introduced many people to us whom all treated us very well especially the Manager James , he was the nicest most personable manager ever. I can now cross off The Rainbow from my bucket list...

This is an awesome place! Don't be scared off by the entrance fee into the place, because all they do it swap it for a drink voucher - so you're basically guaranteeing to them you'll at least buy a drink. From what I can remember - it was reasonably prices, and I have 2 great nights here. The first night... More

We were looking for heavy metal - oriented places around LA... found this address on a website and decided to give it a go. Food, atmosphere, service, everything was awesome. We both had meat, perfectly cooked and the drinks couldn't be faulted neither. A great experience, we will definitely be back to try the pizza (the table next to us... More

It is what it is : old style food in a legendary place. Nothing fancy, dont go there expecting this.Spaghetti, steak sub, fish and chips, kinda place. Its still amazing to visit. They have movie nights on some weeknights. Service is friendly and quite fast too. The music playing is, of course, always the best! A staple to visit while... More

The rainbow is a the place to go for anyone who loves rock and roll. Yes, you may get a glimpse of some famous rock star but the scene alone is worth the trip. Seriously a great place to people watch. People come here for the pizza but I LOVE the Italian roast beef sandwich. It's so yummy and great... More

We were waiting for tattoos in the area and decided to relax for a few minutes! Outside the weather was perfect and the margaritas were awesome! Also went with a grilled cheese that was superb! Excellent venue!

If you are a music fan you have to visit the Rainbow when in LA! The atmosphere, the memorabilia, the feeling of history in the place, it's a pretty special experience. Our food was fine, honestly nothing particularly amazing but decent enough and not too expensive. We didn't go for the food though, I don't know how many people do!
