Although it's loud (live DJ starting at 10pm) and a bit of a scene, the drinks and food are fun and consistent. Meet friends for cocktails or find a cozy corner on a date (you'll have to get close to hear each other). It's always a good time!
The food and atmosphere were great...service not so much. You can definitely tell they prioritize regulars and those with a certain "look." Next time I would rather just hang and drink at the bar rather than getting a table and a server who only checks on you when you flag them down because the music and atmosphere actually were really good.
I have always loved the vibe of The Bar Marmont. Attracts an eclectic mix of patrons. The steak was very good too and though there was a delay in it's arrival, we were offered free drinks to make up for the tardiness which was a bonus!
A terrible place; old, run down, gaudy, uninviting ; verry small drinks(half a martini). Food took forever and then it was not the way my husband ordered it. Meanwhile we sat alone in a corner. It's the Bar of Chateau Marmont yet it is in another building - a weird place - never going back there!
2 out of 3 people received entrees. 20 minutes later, 3rd guest still had nothing. 30 minutes later guest received a flimsy entree with completely undercooked potatoes. Awful. Unaccommodating staff. We were told we were getting a free dessert. We advised that we were getting a free entree and a free round of drinks. They finally obliged. Never again. Not to mention we were surrounded by the douchiest patrons ever!
We were looking for a lively bar with a good menu for late night dining (11pm). Bar M hit the spot! Yummy Burgers and Truffle Fries are a must! Fun Dj and pretty entertaining crowd. We'll be back for sure!
I had the roasted chicken and kale and it was really great. The petit chablis was a nice pairing and had a wonderful reaction on my palate. Great, fun place.
NYE couldn't have been more fun !!! Thanks so much for a wonderful 2016 party
They don't honor reservations so good luck. It's still how you look and if your staying in the hotel or not.
An amazing place, old Hollywood at its finest. I could've done without the picture of Ho Chi Minh greeting me at the check-in counter though. As the son of a man who was killed in the Vietnam war I found it very tacky. Maybe a picture of Hitler next time? Or Osama bin Ladin? But other than that, it was a great experience.
Great place, great drinks ... Good buzz... Wear pants! Nearly not let in as I was in shorts ...
Good place to go for the ambiance & drinks! Dim lighting, dj and good music.
Thought we would check out this lesser version of Chateau Marmont. Furnishings are old and unsuitable for even sitting. Drinks were poorly made and received a half pour of champagne. Ordered calamari and caprese salad. Possibly the worst food we've ever tasted. We won't be going back...ever.
If you like poor service to go with your mediocre food this is the place for you. But first you have to take 45 minutes to park your car since the paparazzi are there waiting reprobates like Courtney Love. Then you walk in to reservations that management says they can't accommodate because you are late. But for all this hassle you have the honor of getting served over cooked food from a sassy waitress with more tatoos than an NBA bench warmer.
Wow. Simply wow. Great cocktails
