Los Feliz / Atwater Village, Los Angeles –
It may be a dive, but The Roost is a refreshing change from the Hollywood scene, thanks to cheap drinks, free popcorn, and a guaranteed place to sit and relax during the week.
Weekends are a different affair altogether, however, as drunken revelers pouring in to end their night transform the bar from a laid-back locale into a rowdy, boozy good time.
The bright yellow-and-red sign leads patrons through the stone entrance and into a kitschy room bathed in a pink fluorescent glow and featuring a dowdy décor straight out of the 1970s.
Regulars in their vintage duds tend to hang out in the leather booths along the wall, while groups of hipsters lounge on red banquettes to chat or glance at the old movie classics on the overhead TV.
Patrons with the munchies can make their way to the popcorn machine to refill their bowls, or line up at the bar with the other tipsy customers and grizzled old-timers to order PBRs and admire the curious collection of rooster knickknacks.
Mellow on weekdays, The Roost definitely takes it up a notch on weekends when an outgoing crowd shows up to indulge in cheap, free-flowing booze and a carefree atmosphere.
Hipsters, neighborhood regulars, and creative types, 20s to 60s.
Jukebox featuring selections from Stevie Wonder to Patsy Cline. TVs show old movies. Electronic dartboard.
Beer 3+, wine $4, cocktails 4+.
Very casual: vintage t-shirts, flannel button-downs, jeans, sneakers, after-work attire.
Friday and Saturday for the busiest scene.
The Griffin (3000 Los Feliz Blvd) is a campy theme bar next door with an excellent Happy Hour.
