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

The place to be where legions choose to hang out - everyone in R and Roll history who came to LA has hung out here Zeppelin Boys still have a table reserved

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
