Lounges >Frolic Room
best jukebox, favorite dive bar, good tunes, unique regulars, big budget disney theater production, interesting conversations, beautiful people
Once the old stomping grounds for icons like Bogart and Marilyn, the Frolic Room has become one of the most beloved bars in L.A. and a welcomed respite from all the gentrified lounges popping up near the Pantages Theater. Its glory days are gone, but the Frolic Room retains an air of nostalgia and dive-bar feel. Go for Happy Hour (from 4 to 7) or stop by for a drink after a show.
Oh, you can Frolic. Just go here with a bunch of friends if you want to have fun. You can run the jukebox, have some great drinks that are under $10 each and just be yourself. The crowd ranges from theater patrons to dentally challenged regulars who could quite possibly be the nicest people I've ever met. If you don't mind the initial smell, you'll love it.
Fun, Jukebox, More fun. This place is all about the best jukebox in town, and is just a lot of fun.
Great Mix of People. Things have really picked up at the Frolic Room ever since the Lion King's first mighty roar was heard at the next door Pantages. Crowds pop in before and after the show for drinks and adventure. Sometimes the mix of people is unreal. Professional drunks mingling with dressed up folks who only get out of the house once a year for a special occasion (i.e. big budget Disney theater production).
A downright awesome dive.. If you are looking for a place to hang without all the snotty L.A. types looking you up and down this is the place. Get a drink, hang with your friends and chat. Can get pretty busy on the weekend nights but you won't have to deal with the "Are you cool enough?" bouncer at the door. That Rocks.
Talking to Strangers?. Have to admit the number of times I've actually had a good time in a bar are very few and far between, but some of the evenings I spent here will stay with me as fond memories for many years to come. There's a friendliness to this place that you don't find very often anywhere, much less in a bar. It's divey but not at all scarey, hip but not alienating.
