The Viper Room

We want people to get to see great music in a really intimate setting, and that’s what they get here.

The Viper Room has been an institution of the music scene long before opening in 1993. Once a jazz bar called the Melody Room and then a club called the Central, the corner of Larrabee and Sunset has always been a home for music lovers.

Opened under the direction of Johnny Depp, the Viper Room maintains an intimate and friendly vibe for both musicians and music lovers alike. The mystique of the Viper Room isn’t just in its size and location but its ambiance and camaraderie, something impossible to replicate.  For any band making their way to and through Los Angeles, the venue has become an essential spot to not only cut your teeth but announce you are finally here.
