Snake Pit Ale House

Map & Directions 7529 Melrose Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90046-7417


LA Weekly's Description

This Fairfax bar fills a valuable niche. After all, it can be hard enough to find a place to watch a Dodger game in Lakers-dominated Los Angeles; it's harder still when you're trying to avoid the blaring, brightly lit domains of white-capped frat boys. Snake Pit Ale House on Melrose, however, rises to the challenge. With a couple of plasma TVs in addition to a wall-sized projection screen that's typically given over to the night's biggest game, you're almost guaranteed to be able to see your team of choice, in an environment that's both divey and homey, with 20 beers on tap and a decent jukebox. It's like a bar on San Francisco's Mission Street plunked down in L.A., the place you go when you're into craft beers and Black Flag, but also — secretly or not so secretly — some brand of sports geek.

    Great dive bar but make sure you take control of the jukebox early! That was the only downer when I was there last - someone chose a bunch of crap music! Otherwise, a good time.

    This is a great place to meet foreigners who come from the orbit hostel ... Foreign people are fun to talk to when you are drunk
