Probably the first bar that I actually felt at home in on this trip. Great staff, proper beer and down to earth, normal customers listening to actual music! Love it! Lemmy memorial was a nice touch as is the fact his bar stool has been reserved for life.

Visited the bar mainly to pay tribute to the legend that is Lemmy. A statue of the great man now resides next to the seat he always used. Great for a photo opportunity, The bar itself is in a great location if you like your live music. Next door to the foxy and a block away from the Whiskey and... More

The Bar tenders are beautiful and well managed this is a lovely location to visit on the weekend while staying in West Hollywood. There are 3 bars 1 upstairs and 2 downstairs. They have a beautiful Motörhead statute on the inside. Please order the Veggie Burger or Asada Burrito Nice prices and good people 5/5

Great food, great drinks, awesome place. And a Lemmy statue. There is a lot of different levels to this bar so make sure you walk around and explore. I hear that DJ Will is here on Sunday. If you love 80's heavy metal you will love DJ Will. Pizza is very tasty here.

It's a Bar and Restaurant with a lot of R'n'R memorabilia of famous musicians who came around to have a drink or some more. It ist not a museum. I don't know what other people here expect at the Rainbow. Its not the Hard Rock Café. I was there with my Dad and we had a great time. Ok, food... More

This place is an institution and I expected to have mediocre food and service in really cool surroundings. Boy was I surprised! In addition to the incredible decor and service we enjoyed, the food was amazing. We were made to feel comfortable to roam around and even check out the upstairs room where the famous Hollywood Vampires used to meet.... More

While in LA I had to take my wife to where I used to hang out when I lived in Hollywood back in the 80's. Where the birth of Hair Bands took place. If you haven't played the Rainbow, Roxy or Whiskey you haven't played three of the most legendary clubs on the strip. When you go in you see... More
