The Mountain is one of those "LA" places that are impossible to find because they don't have the name of the bar on the door. But once you figure it out, it's a pretty cool place. Not over-crowded, and with a chic interior. It's the perfect place for a first date. The drink selection is pretty good too, though it's a little expensive.

Mountain Bar is a great place to chill, grab some drinks with friends and avoid all the Hollywood hustle. It might be a little hard to find if its your first time going here though. It is nestled within a little Chinese complex. Upstairs is a not pretty at all, but I just went there a couple of weeks ago and was told they were remodeling it. The music is the best! I loved the "true" underground hip hop and reggae provided by Live Injection Sounds. Downstairs has an old school feel as well. The walls are red but the place mostly is very dim. The bar is excellent, drinks are reasonable. A big plus is that its in Chinatown, so after drinks everyone usually hits up the local chinese restaurant, either Full House or Won Cok. Overall, a nice dive bar to chill out and listen to good tunes!

Pros: Music, location in Chinatown, very chill bar

Cons: hard to find at first, a little outdated

this is place is oh so nice and the upstairs is a dark 70's lounge that makes you feel oh so..... Instituto Fazcionsita will present Chow NAsty from San Francisco and Shell Shag from Brooklyn on March 25th, a Sunday. Come for some good shows, some awesome DJs that will keep you in the boogying mood. This isn't another hipster twister, ok maybe it, but hey no one else does is like IF. Free booze for the first hour, cant beat that. Check our myspace for the latest from Instituto Fazcionista on everything. Web site launch party coming on APril 2nd, stay tuned!

Pros: Good looking people, beautiful ambiance, music will not let you stop dancing

Cons: only one toilet, who cares!

Yes people, life exists east of the 405, and -gasp- there is a nightlife in downtown LA! Make an escape to Chinatown, where you will find this fun bar and chill people. This spot pulls in an ethnically diverse eastside-artsy-fartsy crowd, ranging from hipsters to underground hip hop-heads and everything in between. The music is good and there is some dance space, but it's still more of a "hang out" kind of bar. Drinks are reasonable and well made. There are only one or two other small bars in walking distance, so don't expect to hop around too much. Also, you won't see the bar from the street - walk down the brick pathway/shopping alley that is perpendicular to Broadway and Hill St. to find your way there. There are a few parking lots close by and they don't cost much, however if you scope out Broadway/Hill you might find free street parking.

Pros: Good vibe, cool crowd, nice escape from the Hollywood fluff.

Cons: Free street parking fills quickly, hard to find for newbies

Ah, the Mountain Bar. It's almost impossible to find. It took us about an hour of walking around Chinatown, but was worth all the trouble since it's an awesome bar. Downstairs has a huge bar and nice-sized dancefloor. The decor is strange, but that's okay. Upstairs is where the bands play. If you don't like standing and staring at bands in an awkwardly smallish room, go chill out in the connecting room, full of super comfy leather couches, cause it's a great way to relax and enjoy live music. I go back often.

Downstairs is cool, and the walls are dripping with fake bl00d. Light fixtures are unique, and there is a hip vibe, but wander upstairs and you might be sucked back to your late teens. The upstairs is gross and sticky...from the mattress to the icky carpet up the stairs, unless you are 22 and hammered, you will want to take a shower and disinfect the shoes you are wearing. They open at 7ish and cater to the young and tragically hip, so be prepared before you go. Could be so much cooler, but is just another hole in the wall. File this one under dive.

Pros: mellow crowd on the way too/from dodger games

Cons: drippy wall coverings need to be reconsidered

I went to The Mountain Bar for New Years Eve and we all had a blast. Not only were the people there pretty unpretentious, the dancing was a lot of fun and the drinks were really good. With a DJ on one level and a band on the other, it was hard not to find something fun to dance to at this place. I'd probably go there again, but maybe not on New Years. It was a bit crowded, but overall, fun!

PROS: good lighting.
CONS:

Hard to find, but worth it. The people, the staff, the place are always cool. Mellow place that gets busy late night. Cultural events happen upstairs, blending with the mysterious goings on of a city. Downstairs stays convivial and solid with good music from a harvard degree mix.

This place seems to be way too overhyped.. On one hand, this is a very different place unlike the bars in Hollywood.. BUT then you might as well have stayed at home.. or driven to TJ for a new bar experience. Here parking is horrible, the place is a dark hole in the hole, they dont serve any food. Within 30 seconds the novelty wears out.. Dont forget one has to also navigate through China town to reach this place.. All in all. five thumbs down!!!

The Red pours out of this place like lava from a volcano. As hot as the girls coming in and out of the Mountain. This place has a friendly staff who always seem to find time to make me and my friends feel at home in Chinatown. An oasis in the midst of the concrete jungle. The affordable prices combined with the quality of the liquor they have in their Well Drinks alone is unlike other bars I've been to in L.A. Friendly locals, friendly staff, friendly patrons, cool surroundings, inexpensive drinks, free parking (some nights in certain lots nearby), good music (usually changes with the crowd), an ever changing and blending of scenes seems to work in a mellow social atmosphere at The Mountain. This place is Red Hot from the decor to the night life and it's Cool.

MOUNTAIN is a refreshing change from the pretentious hollywood bars and clubs... it's a hidden gem that is off the beaten path but worth the journey. the place is beautiful, the athmosphere is really chill, (although it can get extremly packed in there from time to time) and the service is great. The bartenders are phenominal and have personality to go with it... the wishing well outside is definately interesting attraction after a couple of drinks...

After submitting this, it won't be much of a hidden gem anymore. Came here with 2 of my friends b/c we didn't want to deal with hollywood's drink prices and snobs. The Mountain is beautifully adorned w/ an asianesque look as you would guess and has a decent amount of space for patrons. They don't have a dj and rely on the randomly selected tracks of their cd player. Service is great, and best of all... drinks are $4 and up. Came on a friday night... mostly dudes. This is a great place to start off the night or end the night.
