DEN OF THIEVES. My phone was stolen last weekend at this bar. Apparently it’s happening here a lot and many other bars in WeHo. If the proprietors still want people to come to their bar, then they had better hire more security and institute more vigorous security checks —e.g. phone check (like coat check) or exit check. When I asked security the next day, they just said “it happens all the time”. INSANE.

Food is great. Happy hour is great. But the pricing any other time is outrageous and not worth it.

Food is great. Bartenders are great. They struggle significantly to put on games when requested. Not sure why this is so difficult when usually very few people are watching sports. Other WeHo sports bars are much more responsive. They don’t even follow-up to give an update. Much better sports bars in town for watching games.

I think this might be my favorite spot on the main weho strip. Wether it’s for lunch, a post-work drink, or night out with friends, I HAVE to stop by even for a little. The Left Arm drink is my favorite but also the mezcal margarita. The fried chicken sandwich and the corn dog are so satisfying and flavorful. I love so many of the staff here. I see Julio everywhere. Bar back, bar, cashier, busser, delivering food, and interacting with other guests. What can’t he do. Taylor, Chris, Brady, and Daniel are amazing as well. They, along with the rest of the staff, make this establishment more welcoming and make me excited to come in. Food always arrives within a timely manner, even when it’s crazy packed. The vibe always feels so alive and it truly sets itself apart from the rest of the strip.

Updated Review: The owner reached out to me offering financial compensation for my stolen items, which was appreciated. I'm not sure if I'll be back there on a weekend night given the crowds, but the gesture was appreciated.**THEFTS OCCUR HERE FREQUENTLY**I'm a woman and strong ally of the LGBTQ community, and for the second time I have been robbed at this bar. The first time, someone stole my iPhone 12 Pro Max out of my back packet, which the bar staff was not at all helpful in searching/ pulling camera footage.Last night, I was wearing a small crossbody handbag with a zipper. The bar was packed shoulder to shoulder. While leaving the bar at 10pm, someone unzipped my bag and took my wallet out. I immediately noticed and turned around. The person ended up taking my cash and amex card and discarding the wallet and remaining cards on the floor.Security noticed and didn't do a THING except collect the items and hand them to me, which leads me to believe the staff of Hi Tops are either perpetuating the crime or involved in it to some extent.Yes, they may have security there but they are ineffective if not involved in the robberies altogether.Be warned, this place is a breeding ground for crimes of opportunity. I live in Hollywood, and this is the ONLY bar I have been robbed from. Take your business elsewhere folks! Literally disgusted with this establishment.

I walked in, around 4/5 on a Tuesday, so the bar was empty.Two people sitting at the bar.I sat down, the bartender said absolutely nothing to me, not even a greeting. He just continued to remove plastic from different glasses and avoid eye contact with me.It lasted about 2 minutes which feels like 30 when you are awkwardly being ignored.If I was 22 I'd be upset. Now I just choose to spend my money where I'm treated with respect.Gym Bar is 50 feet away and is the original gay sports bar. Some of the most pleasant people you will ever meet.

It really sucks to be part of the community and have people in the community be rude and malicious towards you in public. I came here with a few friends in the morning for some food and drinks. its one of those walk up places where you put your order in at the front counter. The setup was confusing and I thought we were going to have to get our food from the front but they bring it to you. Long story short I only left like a five dollar tip not knowing they would bring the food to us. Regardless the guy gave me the wrong order and I’m pretty sure they spit in my food. I am never day drinking out here again. With Covid and stuff it’s extremely irresponsible to have a staff like this serving food. It was the younger skinny white guy with brown hair. He had the most horrible attitude of life and I’m never coming here again. The set up is raunchy and confusing also the food was not very good I couldn’t hardly eat it. Not sure if that was on purpose or not? Definitely not worth $27 for a soggy undercooked burger and some cold fries

Rude! We were looking for a place for dinner and a few drinks. Being obviously of age we were oddly asked for our ID, we provided drivers license then they asked for our passports!Ridiculous to say the least. We spent our money elsewhere and hopefully everyone else does too!
Darren Abbott
02:02 30 Sep 22
Unfortunately we could not visit this bar as they would not accept our foreign “driver’s licence” from Queensland Australia and requested our passport which obviously we are not going to carry around. Give this place a miss as there are so many more welcoming bars on WeHo

Even though having been there many times, rude doorman said in slurred speech that they don't accept non American ID except passports (no-one carries passports around). Several guests entering confirmed that no other bar does that and that nor do they most of the time. They lost 5 people's orders by doing that, good luck in the future with your rude uneducated door staff demanding passports when, statistically, they definitely don't have a passport themselves.

Nice place, but rude staff! We ordered foods and had a table. A staff asked us to relocate as he had to move the table. We were happy to move, and asked him where we could go as our foods were on the the way. And I quote”I don’t care”. I understand he’s hard, but there is no need to be rude.

My group of friends had two phones stolen from them while here on Saturday 5/14. Previously another friend caught someone in the act of trying to pickpocket them. Need more security here.

My friend’s phone got stolen here. I talked the security guard and he said 4 phone were stolen the same day AND ITS NOT THEIR RESPONSIBILITY. In my opinion it is the responsibility of this establishment to provide a safe space for their clients.

After Kitchen 24 modified their schedule it ceased being my second home. I was sullen and nostalgic as that place allowed me to enjoy dinner and libations, along with conversations that were cathartic. Slowly, though, Hi Tops has become that place for me. Dana has recruited some topnotch talent both in the back and front of the house. I cannot speak for the other dishes, but the grilled chicken sandwich is literally my daily bread. It’s juicy and moist, with a double dose of chicken breast and a chipotle sauce that envelops your palate with every bite. The drinks are consistently well poured and generosity seems to be on the instructional manual because you never leave cheated. And some of the staff are clear standouts for not only their professionalism and efficiency, but their genuine desire to gab about consequential topics and to know you as an individual. Among this elite cadre are Clint, Scottie, Eilish, and most especially Matthew, who might be their most dedicated and diligent employee. With their Gym Thursdays and Trivia Tuesdays, they surely are becoming the neighborhood Cheers we can all vaunt and celebrate.

We slid-on-over after the kickball elimination game was over... I was happy to observe the table being sanitized between seatings. I had the Crispy Kale Caesar salad and we were very happy with it. My partner-in-dine had the Grain Bowl and we were happy with it too. The Marquerita-rocks was tasty as well.

Good food, nice and friendly staff. But there's a big but! Now with covid they make you feel that you're almost in the way because they want to fill the table with new people, while you're finishing up you food and drinks. I eat and drink quick, but got the feeling that I didn't finish up quick enough.Don't know if this will be my first option next time we go out in WeHo.

From entrance to exit Hi-Tops scored a homerun! We were promptly greeted, temperature checked and offered hand sanitizer as we were then shown to our warm and cozy seats. Sierra introduced herself within minutes to get our drink order. My Magic Hour was perfectly flavored and strong. The nachos were a guilty pleasure yet fresh and flavorful!The grilled cheese, after much anticipation, lived up to its expectations. The fried chicken sandwich gives Honor Bar a run for it’s money and the side salad was a clean and delicious alternative. Speaking of delicious alternatives, the cauliflower on a stick was reminiscent of Mexican style street corn with a Californian twist. Hi-Tops provided an elevated sports-bar experience that felt safe without being sterile. Caps off to the entire staff for providing such an enjoyable escape during uncertain times. 🧢 💕

Very good cocktails and beer selection. The food is also very good. I've had the nachos and the fried chicken sandwich, which were both delicious. The staff was also very nice. I would definitely go back.

Okay...I want to see this place do well because they have great food and I was a huge fan of the one in SF when I was living in the Bay Area. I don't drink much, so I wouldn't come here just for the drinks. It certainly would be the perfect spot to grab happy hour and watch a game. I think Hi Tops will have to change a couple of their TV screens though. It's not quite the same crowd as in SF. These WeHo guys like to watch their Drag Shows, so please make sure you accommodate that. I noticed that not a single person was watching the games on the screen on my last visit.Drinks never draw me to place, but food... I'll go anywhere to get a delicious bite. I've never been disappointed with anything I've ordered here. My personal favorite is the fried chicken sandwich. Make sure you get this with garlic fries too. The hot wings are amazing. One item I haven't had in a long time are the nachos. Make sure you order these to share though, because it's a big serving.This location is certainly bigger than the one in SF. Definitely start partnering up with all the sports leagues in west Hollywood. The bigger space, sports focused, food options and drinks should be a great way to draw in a "loyal" crowd.Anyway...I'm just here for the food. Sometimes drinks....
