LA Weekly's Description

Matzo ball soup and kosher favorites are a draw at Canter's famous deli, but it's Kibitz, the bar next door, where people who really want to get pickled go. Added to the establishment back in 1961, the room melds old-fashioned touches with rock n' roll flair. Rock photographs, the work of the owner's son, Marc Canter, line the walls around the small stage, many featuring players who went on to stardom: The Wallflowers, The Freewheelers, The Black Crowes, to name a few. Slash was known to pop in for some noodling. Today, Kibitz features weekly entertainment including live jazz, rock and pop.

Tips from foursquare

  • Los Angeles Times on 10/14/10

    Open from 10 a.m. every day, the Kibitz Room is a great place for a morning brew and a big bowl of matzo ball soup (ask for two spoons to make the meal romantic and cheap).

    Daniel ensures everyone an ASS-KICKING time & never serves a weak drink! Brought to you by THE EXPENDABLES 2 opening August 17!

  • 80-year-old Canter’s Deli, the Kibitz Room—the divey-est, strangest little club and bar in town. It has a history with rock ‘n’ roll royalty: The Doors & Frank Zappa kibbitzed and jammed here.

    Best damn pickles in the state
