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!

Great bar with a long history in LA . I was there in February but it was very nice to sit outside. Beer is good, staff is very friendly. I will visit that bar next time in LA for sure

As a fan of rock/metal music, we had to visit the bar that Lemmy's called home. To be honest, it's nothing special, but if you've ever listened to any Motörhead, then you kind of have to give the place a visit. The new statue of Lemmy provides a good touristy photo opportunity, and you might spot a celebrity or two... More

Had Saturday night dinner. Restaurant was full while we were there, so I recommend booking. Staff are great and welcoming. Food was good but far from great. We had the Rainbow pizza (delish) and some pasta. BUT what makes this a five horns in the air experience is the memorabilia (guitars, drums, records, photos, posters, etc) on the walls n... More

Great service, food and of course the atmosphere. We were able to make same day reservations on a Friday evening. You have a choice of eating inside or out. We had the Rainbow pizza (?) and it was delicious. We of course couldn't finish the whole thing and planned on attending a show at the Whiskey so ended up giving... More

It is filled with a lot music itens, gold and platinum records, signed photographs and etc. Once there maybe you be able to see some famous figures... More

We had dinner here on a Sunday night, we are metal music fans and so we knew in advance we wanted to visit here while we were in LA. Even if you don't want food it is worth going here for a drink, it's a great place. It is popular though, soon after we arrived on Sunday evening it was... More

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
