The Roost

$$$$(323) 664-7272
Hours:MONDAY12:00PM to 2:00AM

Atwater loves its dive bars and The Roost is one of its best. The no-frills, cash-only drinking spot is nearly pitch black inside and you want that at midnight on a Friday. You also want that dirt cheap well vodka because something about the smell of free popcorn in the air and all that cigarette smoke they’ll never get out of the furniture makes you crave nothing else.
