First trip to LA and running into this place was the best thing that could ever happen to me. Great beer, huge selection of drinks, awesome music, local bands playing, a statue of the one and only LEMMY! Had a drink with Rob Affuso, long-time Skid Row drummer... It seemed like everyone, locals and visitors, was willing to say hi... More

Great bar with a great crowd and some amazing rock 'n' roll history to it (and I don't just mean the G&R video). Had a tasty pizza, lots of beers and ran in to Ron Jeremy. Awesome.

For the history alone this is a great place, plus you never know who you might see. A popular place for rockers. Also amazing pepperoni pizza....it is what I always get when here.

We went here just because it's almost a must do when in LA. When we went this time they were extremely short staffed. One person working inside and one person working outside. It took us 1.5 hours to order and get a small pizza that my friend and I split. They were only 3 other tables inside. The pizza was... More

Was in LA on my own but new a lot of people also around the same weekend, headed over to the Rainbow and ran into so people I know. Sitting around made a bunch of new friends, had some great food, while listening to that 80's rock and roll!

New Years Eve and we were there at 5 PM so we could have a cigar before we went to the Whiskey. You can feel the history here from the relics, posters and current celebs that still come for dinner or drinks. Service was excellent. Ambiance was great. Rock music throughout. The food, well the food was good.. We started... More

I really can't add much to what others have said, but I'll try. Got there about 11:30am on a Friday, had wings, beers & a few Jack's. Being from Wisconsin it was nice to sit in the outside bar and some warmth. On the day I was there there were people and ownership discussing and making plans for the upcoming... More

So much rock history here. I had to just come and breathe it all in. While I was here we had the pizza and the chicken Philly steak. Not just a cool rock bar but their food is on point too. You won't be disappointed!
