The drinks are well-made, the bartender a veritable repository of Hollywood history, the bouncer appropriately scary yet indolent. What is not to like?

Me and my boyfriend live in Los Angeles county and when we go out, The Frolic Room is always a number one choice. Everytime we go, we meet interesting people, and by now, we've become regulars. We know the bartenders and the people that frequent the bar. It always turns out to be a good time. It's a hole-in-the-wall bar, but it's fun. It's perfect for getting your "last call" drink.

Are you serious.This place is a dump and the people are snoby. If you want to see washed up, has been movie actors then by all means this is YOUR place.

OK, I used to live in Hollywood back in the late 80s-early 90s and was introduced to the Frolic Room by a homeless musician. I started hanging out and was soon hooked. I couldn't stay away! Besides having the most eclectic jukebox, the people are fascinating, the bartenders are awesome, and the vibe is so Hollywood-cool without being a trendy tourist trap. Wear whatever you want -- jeans or an evening gown. Listen to Black Flag or Frank Sinatra. Chat with stars, rising stars, fallen stars, and those who have never made it off the curb. I miss you, Frolic Room! Carol and Reuben rock.
