The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.

We were just enjoying the Walk of Fame and came across the Frolic Room, we wandered in not knowing what to expect, the door man Bobby, who was a very intimidating huge guy stopped us and immediately made us feel at home with friendly banter, a huge asset to the bar. We had such a great time there, the locals were all super friendly to us Welsh on our first trip to LA. Would 100% visit again due to the friendly staff and customers. Thank you!

We landed in LA after a 13 hour drive and The Frolic Room was exactly what we needed!!
Joel the bartender is amazing!!
The atmosphere is great, everyone is made to feel welcome.
Don’t forget Joel if you’re ever in the UK visit The Rifleman Inn, Stoke on Trent.

Ok so I can’t say this is better than the all of the hotel bars in Hollywood as I’ve only tried the one in the Roosevelt and have yet to go in the bar in the W or Loews but this is by far the best bar on Hollywood Boulevard: no it’s not glam by any means buts it’s full of character and just think of the stars that have been in there before you when you’re having a drink (Stallone and Madsen among the pictures behind the bar but it’s got an awesome history): worth visiting for even one drink to say you’ve been there (and the barmen were great every time I went over the space of a week, no issues like another poster on here claims to have experienced)

As described, great dive bar, excellent music, good prices for drinks in Hollywood, went in Friday afternoon customers friendly, bartender not so much, asked a simple question about a drink, he gave me a look as to why are you asking this question? It's obvious he plays to the regulars and thats too bad, if Bob thinks reputation will bring people in, with bartenders like him? I'll go again when he's not there maybe they have others who actually like customers I mean frolic does mean - cheerful, merry, or playful, the look on the bartenders face was anything but and it wasn't that busy either, still a must to visit when in town

My wife and I were visiting Hollywood October 2022. We saw Frolic Room Bar on Hollywood Blvd and I remember hearing about this bar from YouTube videos so I was so pumped to try it out! We went in super excited to try some good drinks. We sat down and asked the bartender for a cocktail menu, he replied we don’t have one. So I asked him to give us some options for cocktails that he could make so we could decide, he said “hey man this is a dive bar, we only do shots and beer so what do you want”. We just got up and left. This bar was mentioned many times online for its cocktails and even has cocktail in neon light in front. Disappointed all around.

Excellent place to stop and have a beer in a relaxed environment. Step off of the boulevard and gather your thoughts in a chilled place.

I've been passing this dive bar for decades and this was my first time in here. The Pantages next door was crowded with patrons heading to see Hamilton, I'm glad they didn't clog this bar or I would've never gotten in. It's a small bar and dark just like any other dive, and the prices show it. I ordered two Blue Moon beers on tap and they were only $5 each, what a deal.

I plan to return this summer (2020). I love this place. Got to drink with some washed up dude from the old Hollywood Squares show, probably back in the 70's. Good times.

This is a great bar. Looks like a dive from the outside (which I like to be honest) but inside it is really nice and cozy. Overall good, friendly service and you will meet some interesting people in this place. Was in the bar twice until closing.
