Great place to grab an ice cold beer during a lazy Saturday

Funny I almost did not find this place on City Search having only known it as The Snake Pit. This is a great neighborhood bar to grab a quick Happy Hour or a an ice cold beer during a lazy Saturday. The place is small but the staff is all around pretty nice. They boast a fairly large menu for a small kitchen and having only had the disappointing veggie tacos once, I can't really vouch for the food. So stick to a dri... view more

Twenty beers on tap Great Pizza and Burgers!

When we walked in they have this projector screen TV thats in your face to watch games!! \r
We were were in bar heaven!! The bar display went way up to the ceiling, the drinks are reasonably priced and so is the food, my date had the burger which she loved and I had the pizza which put me in shock cause it was HUGE. I had to take some home cause it could feed three people @ six something a pop .\r
They have this

For me the best bar of it's type in the local - and I tried a good few.

1st post - just had to come to the defence of The Pit. When I moved to Melrose from the UK a few years back I was desperate to find a local unpretentious bar I could feel at home in. The day I walked into the pit I knew I had found it. It is a without question a regulars bar and it may be fair to say they don?t put out the bunting for strangers but there is a method to the madness. If you put in the time you can fi... view more

Bad Service and Crowded Atmosphere

The service at The Snake Pit is dreadful. The bar staff rarely serves you in a timely manner, and generally the bar and wait staff is not friendly and inattentive. Great location for a bar like this - horribly poor and substandard service.

Keep it Simple, Stupid

Look, this place is what it is... A hole in the wall. The drinks are cheap and heavy. The vibe is the opposite of pretentious. Most importantly, the entertainment is EACH-OTHER. If you want to roll into a place where you can get served, hang with cool people, sing loudly in unison along with an EXTENSIVE jukebox, and perhaps play some table Galaga, then by all means, go here. With the LA club scene being the ab... view more

They Overcharge -- Be Careful!!!

Before tonight, I'd rate this place about a five -- now, I really wish I could go lower than ZERO. The bill for a modest night of debauchery seemed high, but the bartender (who looks like Rosy O'Donnell's tag-team partner) snatched the bill out of my buddy's hand before we could get our bearings. He paid it, even leaving a good tip -- then, before we left, we started thinking about what the bill SHOULD HAVE BEEN. T... view more

Worst bar everrrrrr

The Snake Pit is an absolutely horrible place. I absolutely love dive bars and thought this would be my little gem near WeHo. Oh, so wrong...SO wrong! The crowd was sparse at 11pm on a Saturday night. Despite of this, it took the bartender seriously 10 minutes to bring us limes and salt for our tequilla shots. And on top of that, one of the waitresses caught a huge attitude with me for invading her space even after I... view more

Love my neighborhood spot!

I live a few blocks away from the Snake Pit, but never ventured in.. It looked way to divey to me. A good friend of mine suggested we go there the other night for St. Patty's day, and we had the best time! People singing, drinking, just cool vibe. Add to that, no worries about driving home for me! Just a quick walk!

It's Great, But No, It Ain't Perfect

One of the least pretentious bars in LA. Yes the staff can be a little....moody if they don't know you. Just kiss their butts a little at first and after a couple of visits they take you in like family. Their chicken wings are awesome, but be warned. They're not typical buffalo style but rather asian influenced. Quite unique and quite good!
