Better be ""their"" kind of people

I'll admit I don't fit the bill of the typical Burgundy Room constituent, but I had been in there before and gotten along fine, until once I went in there amongst a group of punkers and rockers and the Almighty Torrance tossed us out for being over capacity. Except, on the outside, I seem to be the only one he followed to the door and made sure I exited. So don't go here unless you fit the bill of the normal clientele, which is washed up, or wannabe rockandrollers.

My favorite dive bar anywhere

It's dark, it's low-key, and if you like loud rock music, this is the place to be. The drinks are strong and moderately priced. The jukebox is gone - but instead, you get different music every night of the week from some great DJs. They still light the bar on fire every once in a while. And Torrance is the best door man in town!

Rockin' It

I went here with a bunch of friends for my bday a few months ago, it was my first time here, and it ROCKED! We were able to get the table in the front and drank the nigbt away. Although they don't have a dance floor I made it a need to shake my tail feather between the table and the bar. Entire staff is nice, DJ was a little rude but he still rocked the greatest tunes. I had a ball. Decor ain't too impressive but staff and tunes make up for it.

User review by hidden

The music is awesome and gets better throughout the night, drinks are strong, bigger then the norm, and for LA not too pricey at all. The bartenders are pretty much all really hot girls with good style, and the doormans name is Torrance. Like the city. Its just a loud, hot, excellent spot to end up. I recommend it highly.

Bartenders suck--poor service

i've been here a few times and--the worst service ever! the bartenders are either half asleep or cranky and then give you the wrong drink, and by the way, how could you have possibly picked a more unattractive bunch of staff? i like to see a cute face hand over my drink.
this place is not for real punk rockers--drinks are expensive, lotsa hollywood-types and LOSERS/watering hole for the local drunks

Watch out for Poison wannabe's

Dank bar... three bartenders or maybe even four for a relatively small crowd... scored seats at the bar and never had to wait for a drink. Music rocked and was waaaayy too loud- perfect. Only con was the incredibly wasted bleach-blond, eyelinered, Poison-wannabe guy who mauled me with incoherent babble the second my date walked away and left fleas on me, I think. Gross.

Shame about the..

Service. In my experience, if you happen to be a woman who isn't a regular to this joint, you're going to have problems getting served. The drinks were okay, it wasn't overpriced, the service stank but by contrast the atmosphere was great. Great for guys.

I love my bar.

Most nights, I don't remember what happens at the Burgundy Room. Usually, I end up in a sing-along with people I don't know, glass gets broken, random make outs happen and I stumble home. If you are lucy, you will hear Torrance the door man sing. The drinks are strong. Yes.

I love this bar!

I have been to this bar a few times on a weekend night and every time has been an experience! The bartenders are adorable, the drinks are a bit steep but they are huge, the music is so damn good and the peopleare fun and entertaining. The Burgundy room is the kind of bar that every city needs. The dark atmosphere and wall to wall mirrors only add to the dingy charm. Forget about all of the pretentious, fakey bars...this is the place for me. But be forwarned, this bar is not for the faint of heart.

Characters in Red

No LA rhinoplasy or Botox here. Everyone looks like an extra in a David Lynch film. How heavenly, though a bit intimidating, to walk into such a bar hardly larger than a walk-in closet, with the air filled with dozens of screenplays perfectly unsuitable for Hollywood studio approval. Ahhh.

The Place is on Fire

If you are lucky, and you get past the door guy, every so often they light the bar on fire and it's worth wading through a crowd of hipsters just to see it.
