Dim red lights. Odd, amusing, kitschy decor. Nothing fancy in the drinks department, but usually a great hipster crowd, if you're into that sort of thing. They have foosball tables and an awesome vending machine with all sorts of weird

Came here with a few friends for the first time last night. The bartender was extremely RUDE to my friend because he did not know how to make the shot she ordered, that we had had earlier from a different bartender here. He left her other

LOVE the Cha Cha! Yes, its full of hipsters, which can get kind of annoyingly judgy at times, but I don't really mind. What I love about the Cha Cha is the music... ALWAYS good song selections, anything from the 80s to underground and

Great bartenders, cool DJs, really excellent beer selection, beer pong in the back and whoa is that a fine assortment of metal european placards along the back wall

Went there last night (12/14/2009), forgot to tip the bartender. It wad an honest mistake, because i bought the drinks on the card. I was not sober either, but nor drunk. Went back to buy another drink - the bartender said in MY FACE that i forgot to tip him last time. I said I'm sorry, i will tip You DOUBLE this time. But NOOOO, he had to be a bitch and said get the F*** out. I said get the manager here . I was nice and calm. The bartender said "I am the manager". Then kicked us out. I will make sure his ass gets fired tomorrow. Just to clear things up - I've been there numerous times, and never been treated like that. F*** chacha - Red Lion is way better anyways when it comes to beer.

Pros: None

Cons: Everything

Have only gone twice and I find it amazing that the crowds are different. It's a fun bar to hang out with your friends in and let loose. The price of Drinks won't harm your wallet and if you love PBR on tap, it's here. They have a vending machine with 'Zines, tshirts, and just about every weird thing that you can think of. It takes some finesse to get serivce but its never really that long. All in all, its a fun place to hang out.

"we do what we like here" is what the door-hipster told me after I asked why a group of people were allowed in before my friend who was celebrating her birthday.

They are going for the 'Hipster studio 54' thing I guess. The only problem: non of the flare, excitement, thrills or wit.

When did hipsters change from being arty music kids, to wanna-be 1970s porn-coke moguls? Its like Zappa meets Bling Bling.

The cha cha used to be a cool little lesbian dive bar, now its a disneyland for the tragically hip and painfully unoriginal.

I love this bar. I see others points on here about the slow service. You have to keep in mind the people hired here don't know what there doing and openly admit they have no no training. The benefit of this is you drink is STRONG and cheap. I love the ambiance and the hipster chicks. Yes they are all very pretentious but I like it just the same you have to find the humor in all of it. Silver lake is the land of intenionaly,unintentional. In other words do your best to look like you put no time in your look all the while spending hours figuring it out. Look as if you are a struggling artist while tapping away on your Mac at the coffee shop. See the irony in all of this?
It is all very funny. Silver lake is my home and I love it.

Pros: Cheap strong Drinks

Cons: Lines on friday and slow service.....

Maybe it's because I hate going to Silver Lake where you can never find parking or I left the house drunk and wanted to stay that way. But I had a terrible time at this place. I waited for drinks three times and was there about twenty minutes on each run. I am a pretty cool dude too, I look pretty awesome when I go out so it's not like I'm not getting served because I'm ugly or something. Nope, the only reason it took everyone so long to get served is because the jerks behind the bar sucked at thier jobs. No apologies for the wait times and the only reason I tipped them anything was in hopes to get served sooner. That didn't happen. I understand being busy but three weeks ago when I went it was not. It was a Saturday if I can remember and a dirty Andrew W. K. looking dude was serving. He was a real creep. No customer service skills whatsoever. Once again Silver Lake fails at being a cool place to go. If you drink slow or have a pretty girlfriend who would like to go get drinks for you at the bar then go here. Once inside it looks cool enough but the help there is a major turn off. I hope I never go back.

Pros: Nice atmosphere inside

Cons: Horrible service, horrible service, horrible service

I went on a Sunday nite so there weren't too many people. Pabst (the worst beer in the world) was $1.50 and mixed drinks were $7 which is cool. The bartenders were really slow even though they were mostly pouring glasses of PBR. I guess I didn't look "hip" (LMAO) enough to deserve faster service. Most of the people in there were dressed in super-tight black outfits and it was really hard to distinguish which were men and which were women because to be quite honest, in the dark they kinda looked similar with their messy little haircuts. It's an ok bar and I would only frequent it if I lived in the neighborhood.

Cons: Service

if you're patient enough to wait around for the downs syndrome doorman to let you in, and then tolerant enough to wade through lousy wannabe hipsters as they step on your feet you will be rewarded with possibly the worst poured drink in los angeles. I recommend not wasting your time and going across the street to the red lion.

What's the big deal with this place? I didn't find it offensive like some of the people on here, but it was crowded. Then again, it WAS a friday night. There were alot of of hipsters with annoying haircuts, but
they have cool booths to hang out with your friends at, if you can get one.

This place is cool during the week but forget it on the weekends. No matter how much room is available on the inside (and there's plenty), you *will* be made to wait in line to get in if you get there after ten o clock on a Friday or Saturday night. No there's no dancefloor, its not a club, its a bar, and its located in GLENDALE, not on the Sunset strip so why they have a policy of making people wait in line to get in (and why people actually wait in it) is beyond me. I recently went at 12:30 on a Saturday night figuring there wouldn't be any line, and there wasn't. After walking up to the door, the "bouncer" tells me and my friends: "There's a line." After I look at the empty space of nobody standing in any line, he says again: "There's a line; you guys are the first in it." (Of course we didn't want to dignify such bullsh*t by even responding with the obvious, we turned around and left.) Your first reaction is to think the "bouncers" are just dicks, but its quite apparent that its the owner's official policy to make people wait in line to somehow build up hype. Totally ridiculous.

I am a frequent visitor of the Red Lion across the street. I had been waiting for the buzz surrounding the Cha Cha Lounge to die down before I visited. Unlike some of the other reviews we found the bouncer on duty to be really friendly, but once inside be wary of the patrons! If you?re not wearing tight black jeans and sporting an unkempt hairstyle don?t bother. The bartenders are equally as judgmental and you?ll be lucky to get a beer---don?t hold your breath for a second drink. This place is fine if you have a fondess for the mod asthetic and if you?re a wannabe all black wearing LA hipster with a throwback Beatles haircut, but if you?re not just save your cash and go across the street. Its too bad because the music was pretty good.

You are in the line. Waiting, waiting. hmmm... Waiting. Once you get through the line you'll encounter the 12 year old face of a troll at the door named Matt disguised as a doorman. Bummer. Not enough hugs from mom. Jeez, at least now you know what the opposite of cool can act like. Finally. Now you are in the bar. You are wondering, "Why did I wait in line? It's not even crowded in here?!" Next you'll order a drink. The $1.50 Pabst are a deal, but heck EVERYBODY around town offers cheap Pabst, so what's the deal? 10 minutes, 15 minutes... Ah, yes, the bartender reading the weekly or chatting up a chick is FINALLY going to serve you. Ok, got your cocktail. It's strong. It's all worth it now. Take a sip. But wait. The bartender has just taken your change off the bar and calling it a 'tip' before you can place it back in your wallet! And what's that over there- OMG! It's the owners friend from Seattle. Calling out to all the female patrons in his shout reach his blessed misogynist mating call "Stupid Girl, come here STUPID GIRL"! "Where's Matt" you think, just when you need him to DO HIS JOB? Oh- he's wiping the brown smudge on his nose and snickering into his take out. Ugh! Not again!

Do what ya will folks. But take another look. There are so many hot spots and cheap happy hours to hang out in all over this big city of ours. Why line the pockets of a few hipsters who really don't give a hoot if you personally show up or not? The few nice folks that work at this place just don't outweigh the lack of decency or the otherwise unemployable at the door and behind the bar. Happy Hour is not a new concept and it should be a HAPPY HOUR!

Pros: cool vending machine and photo booth

Cons: Service. Service. Service.

So I quoted one of Ian McKay's bands. This bar is one of the best bars - owned by some of the most coolestest people. Unfortunately, you will find a line full of willing people out front on a Friday night. These people are "willing" to stand in line to go into a bar that is wide open and- it's a BAR. You go in and you buy a drink and hang out with, um, people?

We got dragged out for walking in. It's a bar. You go inside and have drinks with your buddies. People who wait in line usually tend to do it in- West Hollywood? Wearing Juicy Couture at a disco club?

A word to the wise: don't bother on amateur nights; aka weekends. Unless you want to wait in line to drink at a bar.

Otherwise: one of the best rock-n-roll bars in LA!

this bar has many fun elements and some terrible ones that will make it hard to go back. we had a group there for a birthday. many had to wait in a long line to even come in as early as 10am - enigma because inside, the bar had plenty of room to accomodate people in the line - made no sense. cool extras: photo booth, fuseball games, big comfy booths. drink prices are reasonable and mixed drinks are strong. at first some really fun music- flashbacks of sorts from your favorite 80 movies and other fun feel good stuff...however as night went on music became worse- migraine like heavy metal that makes u cringe in pain..when a few people (i did see more than just myself ask) approached bartenders kindly regarding a music change...our requests were met with rude responses and i swear it got louder - major turn-off!

Really thought I was gona like the place and the hood needs some new spots, but the bartenders a: suck at not staring at one point at bar and being oblivious if you are not directly in their line of sight, b:) needed my girlfriend to explain to them how to make a manhattan after we had to send her up to get sevred after I waited a good ten minutes to be noticed.

In Short
Located in the old Le Bar space, this Polynesian-themed bar offers a lively hideaway for everyday drinking and special DJ events. The over-the-top club is divided between an enclosed lounge area of shiny-vinyl banquettes…
