Great atmosphere, good food, good music, lots of rock n roll memorabilia. Sometimes they have live music upstairs and great people watching

This was a highly anticipated stop on my latest trip to LA. Great place to hang out! Service was great! Beer was great! Food was great! I recommend the Italian beef sandwich. Atmosphere was great! Hang out long enough and you might see a celebrity or two.

For People with a fable for old rock music is this the place to see in Los Angeles. There are tons of old guitars, photos and other little gimmicks from Motorhead and other bands. The service could have been better but in the end the prices were ok and there is a great atmosphere.

You never know which rock star you'll bump into, perhaps literally, at Rainbow. I've seen everyone from Vince Neil and Adam Lambert to Mickey Dolenz. For a rock and roll party, come on a Friday or Saturday night to have dinner or drinks on the patio. The best rock star spotting nights are often during the week because rockers are... More

We went there because of it's history & reputation and happened to visit later again. The food and the service were good, but I wouldn't especially recommend this to a non-music lover. (Actually the music was a bit loud...) The latter time we enjoyed the terrace up to the closing time while chatting with a local guy. Anyway the place... More

The Rainbow Bar and Grill Los Angeles is an awesome place to hang out amongst the photos and memorabilia of the hundreds of rock stars and celebrities that have graced this Bar for dozens of years ! If you are luck you can go up to the upper sanctuary and sit in the Elvis booth or Beatles table while listening... More

As rock fans we had to eat here. It's busy, the food quality is ok, the service is quick. The music was my playlist from home and it's great fun trying to work out who is or was famous

Just great. Historic. Cool. Cosy. Great foods. Nice waiters. Nothing to complain about and really gives you the "real Hollywood" feeling. Don´t miss!

I wouldn't say this place is truly memorable food wise but for the history, this place is incredible. Tons to see, the staff is knowledgeable and friendly, and the beer selection is decent. I had the pizza which was nicely done with a light crispy crust. The only downside is that it is really hard to get tables at certain... More

Although bias, as a goal of mine was achieved by visiting the famous Rainbow Bar & Grill in LA. The Rainbow is known as a hangout for rock musicians and their groupies, from Dio, to Guns N' Roses, Lemmy and many other rockers! It is well worth a visit to view a piece of history as you start your trip... More
