Actually decent music (rare in the hipster world) and cool vibe. Considering that it used to be a tranny lounge, I must say its gotten quite a make-over. Love the artwork they display.

A really fun bar in Silverlake. The decor is great. The photo booth is where it's at. Maybe get some smooches in?

Nothing bad – What's the big deal with this place? I didn't find it offensive like some of the people on here, but it was crowded. Then again, it WAS a friday night. There were alot of of hipsters with annoying haircuts, but

they have cool booths to hang out with your friends at, if you can get one.

You've got to be kidding me – This place is cool during the week but forget it on the weekends. No matter how much room is available on the inside (and there's plenty), you *will* be made to wait in line to get in if you get there after ten o clock on a Friday or Saturday night. No there's no dancefloor, its not a club, its a bar, and its located in GLENDALE, not on the Sunset strip so why they have a policy of making people wait in line to get in (and why people actually wait in it) is beyond me. I recently went at 12:30 on a Saturday night figuring there wouldn't be any line, and there wasn't. After walking up to the door, the "bouncer" tells me and my friends: "There's a line." After I look at the empty space of nobody standing in any line, he says again: "There's a line; you guys are the first in it." (Of course we didn't want to dignify such bullsh*t by even responding with the obvious, we turned around and left.) Your first reaction is to think the "bouncers" are just dicks, but its quite apparent that its the owner's official policy to make people wait in line to somehow build up hype. Totally ridiculous.

Unwritten dresscode - Must wear tight all black clothing – I am a frequent visitor of the Red Lion across the street. I had been waiting for the buzz surrounding the Cha Cha Lounge to die down before I visited. Unlike some of the other reviews we found the bouncer on duty to be really friendly, but once inside be wary of the patrons! If you?re not wearing tight black jeans and sporting an unkempt hairstyle don?t bother. The bartenders are equally as judgmental and you?ll be lucky to get a beer---don?t hold your breath for a second drink. This place is fine if you have a fondess for the mod asthetic and if you?re a wannabe all black wearing LA hipster with a throwback Beatles haircut, but if you?re not just save your cash and go across the street. Its too bad because the music was pretty good.

Avoid At All Costs! – You are in the line. Waiting, waiting. hmmm... Waiting. Once you get through the line you'll encounter the 12 year old face of a troll at the door named Matt disguised as a doorman. Bummer. Not enough hugs from mom. Jeez, at least now you know what the opposite of cool can act like. Finally. Now you are in the bar. You are wondering, "Why did I wait in line? It's not even crowded in here?!" Next you'll order a drink. The $1.50 Pabst are a deal, but heck EVERYBODY around town offers cheap Pabst, so what's the deal? 10 minutes, 15 minutes... Ah, yes, the bartender reading the weekly or chatting up a chick is FINALLY going to serve you. Ok, got your cocktail. It's strong. It's all worth it now. Take a sip. But wait. The bartender has just taken your change off the bar and calling it a 'tip' before you can place it back in your wallet! And what's that over there- OMG! It's the owners friend from Seattle. Calling out to all the female patrons in his shout reach his blessed misogynist mating call "Stupid Girl, come here STUPID GIRL"! "Where's Matt" you think, just when you need him to DO HIS JOB? Oh- he's wiping the brown smudge on his nose and snickering into his take out. Ugh! Not again!

Do what ya will folks. But take another look. There are so many hot spots and cheap happy hours to hang out in all over this big city of ours. Why line the pockets of a few hipsters who really don't give a hoot if you personally show up or not? The few nice folks that work at this place just don't outweigh the lack of decency or the otherwise unemployable at the door and behind the bar. Happy Hour is not a new concept and it should be a HAPPY HOUR!

"Don't stand in Line" – So I quoted one of Ian McKay's bands. This bar is one of the best bars - owned by some of the most coolestest people. Unfortunately, you will find a line full of willing people out front on a Friday night. These people are "willing" to stand in line to go into a bar that is wide open and- it's a BAR. You go in and you buy a drink and hang out with, um, people?

We got dragged out for walking in. It's a bar. You go inside and have drinks with your buddies. People who wait in line usually tend to do it in- West Hollywood? Wearing Juicy Couture at a disco club?

A word to the wise: don't bother on amateur nights; aka weekends. Unless you want to wait in line to drink at a bar.

Otherwise: one of the best rock-n-roll bars in LA!

eh - cool but a few problems here – this bar has many fun elements and some terrible ones that will make it hard to go back. we had a group there for a birthday. many had to wait in a long line to even come in as early as 10am - enigma because inside, the bar had plenty of room to accomodate people in the line - made no sense. cool extras: photo booth, fuseball games, big comfy booths. drink prices are reasonable and mixed drinks are strong. at first some really fun music- flashbacks of sorts from your favorite 80 movies and other fun feel good stuff...however as night went on music became worse- migraine like heavy metal that makes u cringe in pain..when a few people (i did see more than just myself ask) approached bartenders kindly regarding a music change...our requests were met with rude responses and i swear it got louder - major turn-off!

Can I get a drink!? – Really thought I was gona like the place and the hood needs some new spots, but the bartenders a: suck at not staring at one point at bar and being oblivious if you are not directly in their line of sight, b:) needed my girlfriend to explain to them how to make a manhattan after we had to send her up to get sevred after I waited a good ten minutes to be noticed.

Seattle-based franchise launches second tiki-theme bar and rock lounge at former Silver Lake gay bar. – In Short
Located in the old Le Bar space, this Polynesian-themed bar offers a lively hideaway for everyday drinking and special DJ events. The over-the-top club is divided between an enclosed lounge area of shiny-vinyl banquettes and its decadently kitsch bar with bamboo columns and straw-thatch roof. Like an erupted pinata, the ceiling features dangling fruit, sombreros and Carnival tchotchkes straight out of a Carmen Miranda movie. Lacquered walls with outdated newsprint and red spotlights make for easy conversation starters over goblet-sized tropical drinks.
