One of Los Angeles’ essential hangouts for music fans for nearly 30 years, the Viper Room is particularly celebrated for its calendar of alternative, punk, and metal shows. Ever since Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers played the Viper on its opening night, the venue has been known for its ability to attract A-list acts—as well as A-list celebrities. Stars like Leonardo DiCaprio, Angelina Jolie, and Tobey Maguire have all frequented the club, and you may just spot a famous face in the crowd during your next visit.
The Viper Room features on numerous Los Angeles tour itineraries, including open bus tours of Hollywood, bike excursions, daytime walking tours, and evening bar crawls along the Sunset Strip. You can also head to the club independently to take in a nighttime performance.
