The Roost

Map & Directions 3100 Los Feliz Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90039
  • Daily 10am-2am
  • Reservations Accepted


LA Weekly's Description

This somewhat rundown, barn-themed spot is a popular alternative on Los Feliz Blvd., especially for those who find nearby Bigfoot Lodge too loud and The Griffin up the street too much of a pick-up spot. Super-casual and dirt cheap (but bring cash, they don't do plastic), The Roost is a dive, but it comes alive on weekends, when hip twentysomethings from the area descend. Weeknights it's mostly regulars watching the tube and barfly types. Spacious seating, endless free popcorn from an old-fashioned machine (you serve yourself in tiny brown-paper bags) and an odd array of fixtures and decor (empty liquor bottles line the walls) continue to make the Roost an unassuming but comforting place to nest.

    The Roost has a great jukebox, an amazing 70's vibe, and free popcorn. What more could you want? Maybe a big TV? Well...they've got it.

    Amid a sea of fancier, trendier, pricier options, the Roost remains a dive bar in the best sense of the term: cheap strong drinks, free popcorn, and no pretentiousness whatsoever. Add in a well-stocked jukebox, very few frat boys prone to belting out Bon Jovi, friendly bartenders at the cash-only bar, and the fact that it's rarely crowded even on weekends, and you'll understand...

    I think Sai is trying to kill me.

  • Darryl on 02/09/10

    Free popcorn count me in!

    This is the kind of place where you can meet old friends and catch up. Not too trendy. Not too packed. Not too loud. Great dive bar.

    Free popcorn; cash only.
