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......

Good strong drinks. Has a lot of booths and tables to accomadate groups. Total dive bar. Cash only, so go to the ATM first.

The area in which the Roost is located is great. You can jump around to the other few bars that are on the street and the popcorn compliments any beer. They don't take cards which sucks but the downbeat vibe and the great jukebox make up for it.

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.

Pros: Drink prices

Cons: it was a lil warm when we were there, maybe the air conditioner was broke.

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.

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?

Pros: cheap drinks, juke box, popcorn anyone?

Cons: cash only

THIS IS A PRETTY AWESOME BAR. A LOVELY MIX OF HIPSTERS AND REGUALR PEOPLE IN A NEIGHBORHOOD BAR SETTING. THEY HAVE PARKING (AND IF THE LOT IS FULL, STREET PARKING ISN'T TOO BAD).

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.

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!

Pros: dark astmosphere, available seating

Cons: music

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.

Pros: dank, O.G., strong drinks

Cons: i-want-to-be-seen, sorta, people

Pros: cheap, dinner, first class service

Cons: donkeys, smokers, amatuer night

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.

Pros: cheap, fun, free popcorn

Cons: sometimes too hip, smoky, you get too drunk

Um.....no....I can't believe a bunch of supposed cool "hipsters" would even spend 10 minutes here after viewing or listening to that sad excuse for a jukebox. I screamed when I saw the crap for music that they had, and I swiftly escaped.

Pros: maybe inexpensive

Cons: jukebox, jukebox, jukebox

strong, somewhat cheap drinks (they've raised their prices over the course of the last couple of years, but they are still reasonably priced...) in a smokey, dimly lit hole in the wall -- precisely my idea of what a good bar is.

this place is not for everybody and that's good. the blue collar working set that frequent this watering hole are friendly to us young whippersnappers. i guess we all enjoy the atmosphere of a place that's "real" without the manufactured gloss of a bar like "the bigfoot lodge" or other hollywood dreck.

my absolute favorite place to drink.

Pros: cheap drinks, strong drinks, smoking

Cons: stinky bathroom

Despite its unattractive, unassuming exterior, the Roost is dope inside - all dark and red. Perfect for rolling out there after work for a couple of hours to drink, eat the free popcorn, and just chill out. None of the Westside steez here.

The Roost isn't for everyone. It probably isn't for most people, but I love it for its (very) worn charm, dim lighting, and--maybe most importantly--because they allow smoking inside. It's probably best the lights are kept low--it doesn't feel like a very clean place.

Pros: comfortable, cheap

Cons: out-of-the-way
