I gave them my credit card and opened up a tab and the bar. At the end my bill was $26. I had the cash so I ended up paying and tipping them in cash. Two days later I see a charge on my credit card for $50 dollars. DO NOT TRUST THESE GUYS WITH YOUR CREDIT CARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

good place for a drink...

Been to Akbar a few times. Great place to relax and unwind. If you are looking for the pretentious weho scene, this is not the place to go. Very low key, lots of locals, and down to earth people. Met my partner at Akbar so I cant complain!!! Only inconvenience is the 20 tab on credit cards. Other than that not a bad place to go to.

Cool place despite bartenders attitudes...

While it IS agreed here that the bartenders can be rude and curt and very easily agitated, the place is quite fun. A very diverse crowd as opposed to a few years ago and more space than before. With a little less ""I'm Silverlake-cool so everyone annoys me"" attitude, it could be the best place ever.

Jeffrey Wylie here, manager of AKBAR. Regarding the previous posting by ""foodielover1"": even after 11 years here at AKBAR (and 27 years total in the bar business), I am still amazed at how drunk people THINK they remember events correctly, and how they refuse to take responsibility for their actions. The bartender in question wrote in the bar journal book about this guy the night he came in, and how agro he beca... view more

After a week of arduous work, I went there alone to drink and relax. And it turned out to be the worst night ever. My bartender, Fred, not only accused me for drinks I haven't even ordered, I later found out that he charged twice of what I had spent on my debit card without my authorization. I will soon deal with it with the consumer protection agency. There are bartenders who worked long enough and I prefer to d... view more

Silver Lake is younger, straighter and hipper and so is Akbar

Back in the day this was a neighborhood bar named Jolie's. The seven or so guys at the bar nursed stiff drinks and the owner/bartender was as drunk as they were. Sounds perfect.. except they were all at least 70. Not that I minded because I was in my 20s then and hungry for male attention and thirsty for free liquor, both of which were in no short supply. \r Flash forward 10 years. Silver Lake is younger, strai... view more

GREAT Crowd. Lousy Staff.

It's another great night at Akbar: a fun cruisy friendly young crowd, Bowie cranked on the juke box, you and your friends celebrating the end of another tough week or maybe a birhtday or special occasion. . relaxed and fun. . . and then, it's time to order a drink. . . GOD HELP YOU. . the staff there is a total bummer. . . cold, rude, impersonal. . . all over the city bartenders greet you with a smile, remember your ... view more

Best dance music

We went here for my friends b-day, we are all straight but had a blast dancing with the guys who showed us some moves! The bartendars are nice and boy, do they not play around with thier alcohol...usually my drinks taste too juicy but here, one sip and I already felt a buzz. The music was non-stop great and the people were so friendly.

Great Hangout

This place has loads of atmosphere, stiff drinks, and friendly people. Too crowded for my tastes on the weekend (so crowded it's hard to move), but during the week is a great hangout. The back room hosts several weekly events - tuesday night comedy, wednesday night craft night, etc. Plus, try one of the bartender's homemade cookies!
