The atmosphere is great for people watching and enjoying a night out.
Fun bar for weekend drinks. Gets crowded early. Great spot for celeb sightings.
Bar Marmont is a WeHo institution - and still a hot spot after many years. But if you go early, it's a pretty low-key place for good cocktails and apps.
Sister location to the main hotel lobby bar. Intimate and dimly lit, come here for creative cocktails, delicious bar snacks and atmosphere.
Great place for a quite early dinner, or a late night party! – I have been to Bar Marmont a few (5) times now and find it hands down my favorite place in Hollywood.
The menu is great and fairly affordable, there is also a great and cheap wine selection under $40. It varies day to day I have been there on a Monday night with a friend for dinner and had a great time. There was cool DJ's and great crowd.
Also i had a birthday dinner in a private room with 15 people. There was no extra charge for the room and they had a very reasonable price per head deal 3 courses for 45$ per head.
The staff are so friendly and greet me as one of their own it is so refreshing. I have had a great time at this bar and hopefully will continue to frequent it often.
Some good advice is the valet is half price $ 9 if you get there before 9pm (everyday).
Also they have a great happy hour from 6-9pm i had half a dozen oysters and a glass of great wine all for $12.
monday nights is the best night. – hey, i've been reading some of the negative feedback for the bar here. however, i go on monday nights, and it's very tame, and always fine to casually walk in, have dinner, or order the drink. they have live dj's there spinning really interesting music, and the staff was really cool. valet is pretty steep but you can always park around the streets. definitely worth a second chance.
STAY AWAY! – This place stinks. After leaving another bar on Sunset we stopped by Bar Marmont for a drink before calling it a night. The guy at the door was extremely rude and so was the alleged manager/owner. They only wanted to let select members of our party in as if we were just going to abandon the others on the street, despite the fact it was completely dead inside. They are complete snobs and there are much better places to party on the Sunset Strip without the pretentiousness and attitude. Don't bother going as it's not worth the hype. This place is very lame!!!!!
Made a booking, could not get in! – Heard of the great reputation this place once had. Made a booking for 6 of us for September 21. There were people and cars everywhere. The booking we had meant nothing to the guy on the door, who told us we would have to wait because they had no room for us. Very disappointing and we won't be back. Had a great night anyway further down Sunset Blvd
Couldn't get in after making reservations – Made reservations and went there Saturday night with my wife. Paid $20 for valet, and was denied entry by the rude doorman in front. I don't think he liked that we were middle eastern.
Not as great as I thought it would be – I had such high expectations for this bar and was really let down. Make a reservation and you will get right in the doorman scooted us right thru the ropes no problem. However you walk right dab into the stinkiest, smokefilled room. People sitting and crouching smoking up a storm so for the rest of the night you smell like an ashtray. When you walk in you are looking down on the bar which was cool, we were passed by once by the hostess but the second hostess was very nice, called me by name and seated us in the bar area. The server was nice but did not like repeating herself which she had to do because the bar was so loud. My friend thought she was really rude. The tempura calamari was out of this world. Lemon drop was just so-so but my friend ordered a specialty drink off their menu with mint in it and loved it. the bar scene itself was boring....dazed people dancing by themselves in the corner. We left after about 45 minutes.
Great (strong) drinks, cool legendary atmosphere, terrible service – It's almost a joke how bad the service is. Except it's not that funny when your drinks cost $15+.
The door men are usually cool. I mean, their job is to keep the place exclusive, so don't expect to get in if you look awful, but otherwise that aspect is fine. The girls who work inside are the problem. Maybe they only pay attention to rich looking men, but the last time I was there (just me and a girlfriend) we were literally ignored when we went to the section to order food, after wrongly being told the kitchen was closed, oh, wait, no it's actually still open, but ... blah blah.
Another time I was there, perhaps at a less busy time, the service was fine, but not outstanding. I'm going to stop complaining now, because, I think you'd be a fool to go to Bar Marmont in hopes of outstanding service. It's BAR MARMONT. You're lucky to be in there, right? That seems to be the general concensus. Drinks are great, location great, decor great, has the history, has the name. Go if you want, don't if you don't.
not as good as before – Bar Marmont used to be awesome before the re-do, not so much anymore. But the food is pretty delish.
