Pull up a seat in this dark & cozy bar and make sure you save room for an old fashioned or two.
The absloute tops – interesting non-pretentious people. hot dudes that look like morrissey with tattoos and hot rods. the music is fantastic. punk and rock. all the things I have on my ipod. there isn;t a dance floor, but people tend to get down anyways.
Super cute bar - in a good way – I went there because the crowd at the Derby was too much like something I would find at Forbidden City or Ivar. I love Silver Lake and Atwater but I never knew this place existed. It looks like a hole in the wall but then you walk in and there's a raccoon playing peek-a-boo from a log and you see this place that is themed out! There is a real cute fireplace with little log stumps for chairs and the fireplace is actually a vent for the a/c. The drinks were good, prices were moderate, and the crowd was a great mixed group of people. The music was good too and it wasn't too loud so that you couldn't hold a conversation. Even though it was a Saturday night and there were tons of people seating wasn't difficult to find and waiting for drinks wasn't bad. Only bad thing was that I don't think they have a smoking patio so you had to walk out and smoke and walk back in.
Pretty Rad – This place is pretty rad! I live close by so I just walk on over. The drinks are great especially the specialty drinks and they're well-priced. Just get there early on the weekends because seating is limited.
Great Theme and Fun – I visited here from NY and it had a great theme and decor. It had a Vermont inn feel and there was seating. The crowd seemed mix and the music variety was good. The bartender was working it as well. Fun place, check it out. It's something out of the ordinary.
Best bar to relax in – Well when I first ventured to the bigfoot lodge I was a little skeptical due to the fact that we might encounter a whole lot of trendies from LA. Well to my shock this is the opposite of the LA scene. The first time I went there I was amazed to see all walks of life in this bar. The workers are the the best I have encountered at a bar. The atmosphere of this local is cozy and so relaxing. You can just sit and chill with you best friends. To top it off the drinks are excellent. I recomend the their entire specialty drink menu I have tried them all and loved them. I recomend the sasquach but you wont remember the rest of the night. Another great experience is the bingo night on Sundays. A free bingo game where the prizes are free booze or a prize. Before you know it, it will be last call cause you are having to much fun. I recomend to all.
Real chill place! – This place is sooo chill and diverse. You don't any pretentioness from LA anywhere! Since I work weekends I go to Bingo Sundays and it's really fun. Having a buzz and playing bingo is awesome and while watching weird 8mm stock footage. Their speacialty drinks are delicious like the Girl Scout and the Toasted Marshmellow. Good mixed drinks and the service is great. Underneath the bar are hooks to hang your purse and coat if needed which is handy and you don't see that around in L.A. It's a good big bar too but on Saturdays it gets hoppin so come around 9pm for a good seat. I would highly recomend it so anyone who lives in L.A!
Good place to hang out and drink – Loving the scene, people are real, not the typical Hollywood crowd. The log cabin feel is right on. Drink prices are average.
Where Smokey the Bear and Woodsy Owl go to quench their mighty thirsts. – In Short
With one of the wittiest interiors in town, Bigfoot attracts folks who like to smirk while they imbibe. Foresty decor is taken to deliberately absurd extremes, with logs everywhere, an animatronic raccoon in a stump, custom signs for the Sasquatch National Forest, decanters shaped like bears and fish, and stuffed critters all around. Rockabilly guys and girls, along with hipsters from nearby Silver Lake.
this place is amazing! i love it because the service is great and you don't feel like your in LA. there is absolutely no pretentiousness at this bar... if your into tattooed chicks and PBR well, you have found mecca... the drinks are stout and not too expensive... for me, the best thing about this bar is the music and the people. the mix of people may lean a bit heavily on the rockabilly crowd. BUT there are enough others that mix in as well... i LOVE that i can go to the bigfoot lodge and hear my favorite punk rock songs of my adolescence, like the misfits and the dead kennedys intermixed with 80s hair metal and new wave. love it!
Interesting Atmosphere – Lighting and atmosphere is very relaxing, seems like cool people frequent this bar.
