Neighborhoods: East LA, Silver Lake
Housed in what used to be one of the more notorious gay bars in L.A. (Detour), is the 4100 Bar. It's cleaned up somewhat but the air of debauchery and spilled beer still lingers in the air. This is a cool bar with an edge, comfortable but never bougie. It's a nice place to end a night of drinking if you live in the neighborhood. It's popular with locals, gays, and an art crowd.
The cocktails here aren't too fancy, though they do have that awesome special ice from the Varnish. This is a cool bar for the dim ambiance, lively and diverse crowd, and tasteful jukebox.
The 4100 is cool like Silver Lake. – I love the 4100. It's a stand alone bar/club that does it's own thing just like Silver Lake does. Hipsters are here, yes, but posers no. Cool vibe.
Better when it's not so full – Good beers on tap, nice vibe.
Nice little bar – Full of people everywhere ,but the drinks r good atmosphere and decorations r nice.
One of my favorite bars – All the beers on tap are some of my personal favorites, and they are all priced right. All of the staff is attractive and friendly, and the crowd is usually very chill.
Don't try to go on the weekend after about 9:30-10pm unless you enjoy standing in the walkway of the bar and have to move every second for someone to squeeze by and spill a drink on you. I don't wanna hate, but a seat is pretty crucial due to the layout and snagging them early is the key....
Before you Go: Be Warned:The Manager is RUDE there – I actually use to like the 4100 bar until the manager decided to be rude to me just because i did not tip one night. I was there with my friends trying to have a good time, pay for my drinks and be on with my day. Just because i decided not to tip him he started this whole drama and demanded i tip him. Last time i check ,tipping is not to be force upon. The reason why i did not tip was because i knew my bank account was going to be overdraw and i only have enough to pay for the drink. seriously i do not go to bars to start problems with anybody and nor start drama with the management. he was shouting at me and telling me " if i was not going to tip that i should of stay home" i was amazed how this fool of a manager got so upset about his tip. As a manager shouldn't he show at least some class of respect for himself and stop begging for a few dollars. Once again i am a guy who does not expect nothing really in any business or customer service business ..all i expect is respect from the management and the people who work there. They are rude and if u dont tip well expect to insulted by inconsiderate fool think that people can always tip. Yeah sometimes we can't. especially in this economy.
and im not the only one who feels this way . check the other reviews
Hollywood in Silverlake – I used to go here. Not anymore. It's like a mini-sunset strip bar with idiot patrons, snotty chicks, and drunk frat boys.
sweet atmosphere – if you like small dark bars this is the place. get there late week night style. weekends can be a little too crowded for my taste
great late night cocktail – I went here after dinner on Valentine's Day and had a wonderful drink in the dimly lit room. Thanks for making the night complete.
