Average Reviews


A West Hollywood institution for gays since the 80’s, Revolver Video Bar is a favorite destination where friends can catch up over cocktails while watching one-of-a-kind music videos. Named for its revolving front door where guests funnel in and out of the popular spot, the new Revolver Video Bar is once again putting a new spin on West Hollywood nightlife.

Sticking to its roots of the best music video and iconic movie mash ups, inexpensive drinks, signature nights and even the landmark revolving door, the reincarnated Revolver Video Bar pays homage to its previous self but with an entirely sexy new look.

Revolver is always a fun time, but it does get extremely crowded here on weekends since it's not super large so that may not be everyone's cup of tea....

Revolver is a decent bar (the second incarnation of the original), good drinks, decent music, hot go-gos. But my 2 star rating is for not accepting CASH....

Beware! RUDEST BARTENDERS in all of West Hollywood! Starting with the good, I have visited Revolver frequently throughout the years and have noticed a slow decline in the upbeat, lively energy that initially attracted me. Recently, the last 4 out of 5 visits have been horrible. Four different bartenders on four other dates have given me the worst attitudes I have experienced in West Hollywood. What’s worst than a bad day at work and deciding to have a martini at one of your favorite bars? An arrogant bartender argues with you saying your favorite drink, a lemon drop martini with Tanqueray, is “NOT a martini, and you don’t know what you’re talking about.” Another time I visited, a bartender asked for my order, and I, like always, greeted them with a smile and asked, “Hi, how are ya?”. Many bartenders at other establishments in the past have smiled back and said, “I’m ___; thank you for asking; you’re the first person to ask me how I am doing today”! No, this bartender responds, “Hurry up! You’re wasting my time! What do you want”? The first time I noticed the decline was earlier this year when a few bartenders were chatting behind the bar, seeing me with my card in hand, whispering to each other, and blatantly ignoring me. After about 10 minutes of me patiently waiting, one of them rolls his eyes, huffs, and annoyingly says, “yes?!” as if I am bothering them for my first drink of the evening…It saddens me to see this once great bar fall short of such terrible customer service / nasty bartender attitudes, and I, unfortunately, will never come back. I never leave Revolver feeling great and lively like I used to in the past. In the last 4 out of 5 experiences, I had left that bar feeling worse than when I walked in.

Bouncer needs to be trained to restrain people who are too drunk rather than assault them, push them to the ground, and keep punching them in the head when they're already down. Happened to my friend Sat 9/24/22 about 10:30pm. Thankfully another security guard stepped in to restrain the bouncer. Without doubt one of the worst experiences ever. Plenty of people complain about pickpockets here, but getting roughed up by the staff definitely exceeds that. If I could give negative stars I would!

I apprecciate that they don't remix every single song. Prices are good too. Unfortunately, a barwoman lost my credit card after I gave it to her. That kind of ruined it all. She didn't apologize and I feel she didn't make the effort I was expecting from her to recover my plastic. Not to mention that I was on a vacation and not having my card made everything cumbersome

Worst service I’ve ever had, it took a complete stranger to ask for my drink in order for me to get it (a bit over 20 minutes) after standing at the bar with 3 bartenders just socializing with each other and other customers. I stood right at the serving section and they just ignored me

Came here back on April 15th. I was one of the many people that got their phone stolen. Called the place to inquire about their lost & found and nobody answers. Typical. The last location that FindMyIPhone detected was in a place a block away where I never was at the night it got stolen. Go elsewhere. This place is packed shoulder to shoulder which makes it easy for thugs to pickpocket you especially while you’re drinking, so beware.

I went to watch Drag Race All Stars and a drunk Drag Queen was hosting. She would not shut up and her running commentary was not even funny just lots of yaaaaas queen! And she screamed on mic! Gay guys were covering their ears to block it out. Basic microphone etiquette - DO NOT SCREAM ON MICROPHONE!

Walked in off the street just to sing a quick little diddy. The host had an amazing voice, wish I would of got her name. Fun and festive. Some really good singers. Danced out on the patio. Grabbed 2 beers. Line was quick for karaoke.

Came here last night, and my boyfriend's wallet got stolen. The security guard let us back in to check for it, but the place was packed, and we couldn't see anything on the ground while we looked. The security guard then asked us to call later, to see if it gets turned in to the lost&found. We've tried calling a couple times, and one phone line is disconnect, and the other line rings 3 times and then stops. Reading other reviews, it's pretty insane how often pickpocketing happens here and management doesn't seem to do anything to change that. We went to a couple other bars before this one, and this was the only one that they had packed to the brim, with customers shoulder to shoulder-perfect for thieves. Trying to leave was a hassle; we were honestly probably only in there for 15 because our friend saw someone he wanted to say hi to. And in that short time span, my boyfriend got his wallet stolen. Almost seems like the whole place is in on it. They have a sign on the outside saying they aren't responsible for theft or lost items, and after reading reviews, that just seems like a red flag to me.

Place is so overcrowded that you can easily be pickpocketed. My wallet was stolen last night. Good luck with your valuables if you come here. Never going to this area again.

So I have mixed feelings about this place. It’s usually our first stop on a night out. Good vibe but watch out for pick pocketers!!! My phones been stolen right out of my pocket at the urinal and I know 2 others who had their phone stolen at this place. Keep an eye on your sh*t! Also tonight in particular the bathrooms smell rancid! Yuck

PHONE THEFT ALERT: STAY AWAY! Countless phone thefts occur every weekend. Management does nothing. There is a sign outside "not liable for stolen property" They could easily put an end to this with finding the ring of thieves they allow in. SECURITY CAMERAS ANYONE? Maybe they get a cut.

Bartenders and dancers were great, but DJ was very rude to us when we tried to request a song. Won’t be back 🙁

This place is super crowded which may be fun for many but 3 of us had our phones pick pocketed and turned off so there was no way to retrieve. The management was helpful in trying to assist but no return of devices. I learned there are gangs now in weho of people who do this. It is so rude and illegal and a hassle to get things replaced even with Insurance.I think WEHO THE CITY AND POLICE NEED TO STEP UP. It always used to be fun and friendly and it’s full of criminals now. No Thanks

This place is the BEST. Come for the throwback songs and watch your divas on the big screen! The music is AMAZING and the bartenders are so friendly. Don’t mind the bad reviews below: most places are cashless now due to the pandemic (duh!) and pickpockets are everywhere - I’ve gone for years and never had a problem.

BEWARE OF SCAMS + THIEVES! I went to this bar last Friday night and ordered 4 Moscow mules in total over 3 seperate transactions. On Sunday, I see one of transactions has cleared for $115 instead of $15. I tried calling and the bar's number is out of service. I've disputed the transaction with my card provider, but be very careful. The Yelp reviews give fair warning of sketchy business practices and phone thieves here, and Id wish I had seen them beforehand!

Nice, cozy and interesting bar. Caring staff and interesting visitors. I am delighted with this place. An action takes place here, you can get a separate room for 2 hours and any cocktail for free. To do this, you need to register on the site 909gay,com take a screenshot of the profile and show it to the bartender. It should work now, we took advantage

Probably the better place to go for music. And if the main bar at the front is packed, they always have their bar in the back area open and it's great to get away from the riff Raff. Bathrooms are nice and roomie. My only concern is how small the places and how packed it gets

Back in the early eighties revolver was one of the first video bars I've ever been to. It's a legend and one of the gay hot spots you need to visit if you're in Los Angeles. The pictures are from Bros for Hillary party on the night that Hillary made her speech at the Democratic National Convention. Great looking guys at this bar hand ateres where you can watch guys walking by coming home from the gym. You have to come the revolver if you visit Los Angeles.
