This bar has a great vibe, it always makes you feel comfortable. The size is great, you are rarely ever squished in a corner even on the most busy night, and even when the place is empty (rare) the decor makes the whole room feel more homey. This is one of my favorite local dive bars, their is always an eclectic crowd to keep people watchers interested.

The only drawback is that if you came for conversation, you will probably end up a little horse by the end of the night since the music is a-l-w-a-y-s LOUD!!!

Pros: Good, Stiff drinks. Awesome bar tenders- good size bar.

Cons: Music is REALLY loud.

The bar is good, but the security guy is a complete jock.
Arrogant, pushy, & mean. I wouldn't recommend going there.

The drinks are strong and the crowd is full of locals on any night of the week, but mostly crowded on Thursdays-Saturdays. Dress is very casual.

I met up my girlfriends for a birthday drink after escaping the drunken college kid over-filled Brass Monkey on a Saturday. Coming into a loungy area and enjoying actual conversation with my friends was great. Drinks were reasonalbe, Tommy's down the street for a greasy bite to eat and a great crowd. No VIP lines, no valet... just a great bar. I loved it. This will be my new favorite spot!

"this is my favorite neighboorhood bar. It's a good crowd, the staff is great, and the jukebox has an awesome selection. The place is also fun during the week, especially on wednesdays."

I went on a Friday nite with a group of friends and one of my friends left a tab open. Well, at the end of the nite, the bartender handed back my friend another credit card that was not hers. The bartender took no responsibility, was very dry and indifferent and she really did not seem to care. Before that, the drinks had already been a little on the weak side. The place is really small and the ceiling is low so if you're claustrophobic it's not a good place for you. The only plus side is the bouncer, he's cool!

This place could take a lesson from the Bigfoot Lodge, just around the corner. In a "local" bar, there's a need to treat patrons with a friendly face. The bouncers were rude to some of my friends visiting from Europe. Why would they need a jerk-club bouncer in a local hole anyway? The drinks were weak, the bartenders didn't even look up at us, but it was when the bouncers started fighting with eachother that we decided to leave. The social scene might be "cool" for fat thirty-somethings, but if you like the Palms in Vegas, or have ever partied in Ibiza, don't even bother to attempt to get a friendly local beer at this place.

Pros: no line, no cover, like a hole should be

Cons: pretentious and rude bouncers and bartenders, high prices, bad drinks

.

I love the bar with the stone wall behind it. I disagree with the last person claiming the drinks were watered down. It's a joke I have with my fiance when we over pour a drink at home to "just pretend we're at The Chalet." I prefer to come to this place earlier in the evening (at least before 10) so I can get a good seat at the bar. If you come too late you'll end up standing.

I recently moved to Eagle Rock and was looking forward to finding a new local watering hole. I've been to this place twice, each time with a different person, and we all agreed that the drinks are watered down. You will not get even a slight buzz off two mixed drinks. No value here at all. Crowd and ambience are okay, but who cares? I'm at a bar and I want a good drink. It fails my test.

Even though i've moved further away, i still visit the Chalet every chance i get... on weekdays. It's always best to get there early to get a good seat and pick your soundtrack for the evening. The jukebox is so great though, that really anyone's music picks will entertain. On the weekends it's manageable if you get there early and claim some space, but if you get there late, you'll most likely stand pressed up against others all night. Also, the bartenders are really friendly and the drinks are stiff.

I have gone serveral times to The Chalet, everyone is awesome from the Door Man to the Bartenders. It's local and the people there are down to earth, nothing like old town pasadena!! I would highly recommend this place, keep in mind it is a small place so it does get full fast!!

I have been here a few times and of all the times I've gone it's been a great place to mingle. The theme is basically like Bigfoot Lodge but in a ski lodge instead. The have very roomy booths with sheek seating. The jukebox is gotta be one of the top 3 reasons to stop by this place. It basically rocks, you can hear anything from Lou Reed, Barry White, Stone Roses, YYY, to James Brown?! This is a really fun place to go to mingle, meet friends (then grab some pizza next door, very delicious & authentic) or just shoot the breeze whiile watching the crowd. I will def be here for my bday saving a booth for my buddies!

So the outside of this place wasn't that great or the parking, but it was a pretty cool place to hang out. I was there this past Friday night and yes it was busy, but I got there @ about 9:30 to walk in to a perfect seating spot for 4. The drinks were cheap, but there weren't enough bartenders to help out. All in all the music was great if your into The Killers, Radiohead, Strokes, The Bravery and such other bands. By the way...they have Pyramid Hef for all of you beer drinkers. I would definitely go again. littlecaesars13.

Go here any day of the week, great crowd and atmosphere. Beer and drinks selection is excellent and service is goof. Weekend and fridays are busy but the wait is never long and always entertaining.

PROS: Great interior, location and local crowd
CONS: outside wait on weekends

Good place for a quiet drink. I went on a weeknight and the atmosphere was very mellow. The wall behind the bar is river rock which glows from behind the smooth, shiny candlelit bar running the length of the room. Lodge-like decor : leather booths, dim lighting, and a fire place. There's no valet or paid lot, but street parking is available on Colorado and in the surrounding neighborhood. The service was adequate.

I've been to this establishment several times in the course of my illustrious life. The last time of which wasn't too pleasant. Not that there was anything particularly wrong. I'm just not too fond of being smothered by groups of guys conversing about their work days, as a few scattered thirty something females frolick amongst the patrons with a glimmer of hope that this is the night they find little Stevie a father. Last time I was here I left with my buds to go to a place that had a better male/female ratio. Never been during a weekday. But my chums tell me this is the time to go if you wish to relax. (As seating is quite scarce on a Fri/Sat) Nevertheless the staff here is quite jolly. Tis not a bad place, for what it is. Don't let my mediocre opinion sway you. Give it a try.

This is a lovely bar. It's warmly lit and just dark enough. The jukebox is a super cool mix of everything from punk to jazz. There's couches all over the place, so you can sit down in comfort, and there's no bottle service. I recommend sticking with simple stuff like screwdrivers b/c it's not really known as a martini bar or anything, but they are made strong enough and the bartenders are friendly. There's also no velvet rope, which is cool. Next door is Casa Bianca Pizza Pie, which makes for great late-night noshing.

I don't drink but will accompany friends on an occasional visit to a bar. On Saturday night, we were looking for a casual place to grab a drink after we had dinner and arrived at the Chalet around 10:30p. Nobody's outside but the door man tells us that the place is at capacity and says there's a wait. At 10:30p??? Give me a break. This is a watering hole in Eagle Rock people... spare me the attitude.

The community needs more places like the Chalet. Clean, civilized and nice staff. You pay a lot more then Colombos - but the drinks are better and it is greatest place to sit and relax.

This is stricktly a drinking bar, no food is available. 7pm - ? Everynight. Cozy atmosphere with dim lighting, nooks, booths and a fireplace. There is no official parking lot only street parking. I recommend going to Fatty's ("closet" vegetarian) orCasa Bianca (Italian) for dinner and walking to the Chalet for drinks after.
