Cheap and powerful is how I describe the well drinks at The Roost. The mix of old barflies, hipsters, and local musicians makes this an exciting and fun bar. There's a popcorn machine if you get the munchies - and many people here do. During the day the bartenders usually have some kind of Mexican food for the taking (tamales or nachos) with makes gives the bar a communal-like feel.
Got Booze!!!!!!! – This is the place to do it. Start here with 3 and end the night some where down-town, possibly the gutter. The Thai ladies serve it strong, right, and cheap. The way I like my women too, very cheap!!! Get there and throw it back and stumble out......
Great place to drink – Been there a couple times, the asian lady bartenders were dope, they were awesome. Very nice people, their drinks are the best value in town. Great atmosphere, loving it. I'm digging this place. Definately would go back again.
Good Popcorn – While this place isnt for everyone. It can is definitely a dive bar in the true sense.
The drinks are strong and cheap. Bartenders are great and the popcorn taste better than most movie theater popcorn. Plus its free. Juke box isnt the best. Plays a lot of old country but every now and then a good ole Neil Diamond song will make up for it. So the music isnt great but for some reason my friends and I always go back for more.
Si Rocks! – I love this place! It is my favorite local dive bar. Great staff and cheap drinks! Free pocorn. Woo hoo! No pretensious types here! This is a great place to hang out with your friends, sip on a drink and make memories! Did I mention the free popcorn?
Red, scuffed and approachable, this Atwater Village bar is a refuge from the Hollywood scene. – The Scene
The jukebox is a little bit country, but so is the decor--think wagon wheels, fake wood paneling and walls lined with empty bottles of booze. At the porch-style bar, drinks flow from the skilled hands of a barkeep who bears a striking resemblance to Fran Drescher. Nab a free bag of popcorn and cozy up in a red vinyl booth or one of the tables next to the bar. Pile large drink orders on one of the round serving trays to avoid spillage in transit.
Area workers pop in to toss back a few after a long day on the job, and they sometimes get to control the television set if there's a big game on. After 11pm, this small crowd gives way to a press of young musicians and artists, but the low-key atmosphere mitigates the possibility that the Roost will ever get too trendy.
Ah The Good Ole' Roost! – What can I say? I used to live just a few blocks up, and after moving to the South Bay - I must say... I miss the Roost. Cheap drinks, good folks, and bar air baby! I cannot be in Los Feliz now without stopping by for a quick pick-me up in this joint.
150 Words or Less – If I could think of 150 negative adjectives for Roost, I would list them now. The only thing good about this bar was the drink prices. The drinks themselves were, eh..Ok. The layout and interior design of the bar made no sense. There were tons of interesting people to look at, but if you sat at the bar, you couldn't see any of them. There was this divider that went through the middle of the room that seperated those that sat at a table from those that sat at the bar. BORING! And if you're looking for a place to sit and listen to good music, dare not enter here unless you're up for some good ol' fashion country music. YEEHA!
cockadoodle foofoo – late one night, a lonely hipster left the bigfoot lodge, bored with the same ol'. he happened upon the roost, saw that it was dank, musty, had leonard cohen on the jukebox, and allowed carcinogenic smoke... and decided it must be invaded ASAP. at least, i figure this is how the hipster invasion was initiated. shame that it couldn't be kept secret, but it is 3 huts down from the ol' lodge. drinks are stiff, free popcorn tolerable when you're toasted, and i actually LIKE the partition between the bar and the tables; i'm one of those wallflower drinkers. the jukebox is totally appropriate for REAL drinking. i'd be highly disappointed if there was "good music" to be found. to those who want to avoid fisherman caps hiding dissheveled, greasy hair, low-slung jeans, and portfolio talk that could only originate in the hollywood, make a visit during dusk.
jolly roger – the roost is our local bar. beware all. stay away. you little sensitive emo freaks. cut the mullet. it is a place of good service and peaceful folk. hollywood and silverfake have been invading. making it amatuer nite on the weekends. stay away.
Free Popcorn!! – I disagree with the other posted reviews, The Roost can be a BLAST. Cheap & strong drinks, FREE POPCORN! and a fun vibe. There's actually places to sit, parking, and people out to have a good time (in LA?). If you're not in the mood for bedheaded hipsters in Adidas zip-ups, or lots of smoke, avoid. But it only gets obnoxious weekend nights.
