Viper Room: :LA's intimate venue

Viper Room
Los Angeles, CA



Since its stellar opening in 1993, the world-famous Viper Room has hosted the likes of Johnny Cash, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Stone Temple Pilots, Bruce Springsteen, Oasis, Counting Crows, Lenny Kravits, Pearl Jam, Iggy Pop, Porno For Pyros, Sandra Bernhardt, Sheryl Crow, Dennis Rodman, and Hunter S. Thompson, as well as an array of other internationally-established artists and the cult favorites of America's underground. This intimate nightclub, owned by Darin Feinstein, Bevan Cooney and Blackhawk Capital Partners, Inc. is styled in the fashion of Harlem's great jazz clubs of the 1920's.

To those who have never visited the Viper Room before, you will find it surprisingly cozy, holding only 250 people. Giving fans the opportunity to see national headlining artists that sell out arenas perform for them in an intimate environment has become one of the club's trademarks. Another tradition that the Viper Room has consistently upheld is to treat unsuspecting patrons to outstanding surprise performances and special guest appearances. Customers here will find themselves treated with the same professionalism and hospitality as those familiar faces of the Hollywood limelight that may be standing next to you at the door. These character traits have set this club apart from the multitude of Hollywood nightspots, and guests here can be assured that they will leave having had a unique and memorable experience.


The club is divided into two floors. In the upstairs main room, you will find live performances, a live DJ, an open dance floor, booth seating (limited) and a full bar. The downstairs lounge opens to the public around 10:30 pm nightly and is designed like an intimate parlor. The lounge also hosts a fully-stocked bar.


The Viper Room is open seven nights a week, and admits patrons over 21 years of age. The club generally opens at 9:00pm and closes at 2:00am. There is no membership required, and cover charges vary.
