The Cinema Bar

3967 Sepulveda Blvd, Culver City, CA

The Cinema Bar has been a Westside institution in Culver City for nearly 75 years, and family owned for the past 30 years. We are proud of our quaint ‘neighborhood-feel’ hangout offering reasonably priced drinks, live music most nights with no cover charge, an outdoor patio space, and on-street parking after 6:00PM. The vibe of The Cinema Bar changes nightly depending on the bands that are playing, but it is always a friendly place to hang with friends or to meet new ones.






Stumbled into a piece of LA history and culture in Culver City at a place called The Cinema. The live band was amazing. There is No Cover. The place has a nice patio out back. Lots of friendly beautiful people.

This is such a nice place. The bands are always play good music. The bartenders are always friendly. The male bartender with the beard was schooling everyone on how to drink bourbon and other liquors; he was quite a character. very friendly …

The dive-iest of dive bars in LA. Came here around 7:30pm on a Wednesday and there were a few folks who appeared to be regulars at the bar. There’s an outdoor patio as well, where smoking was allowed. Parking is available in the back or you can park at metered street parking along Sepulveda. There’s live music at 9, and when we went, it was gypsy jazz for that particular night. There’s no menu, you can just order a drink. The gin and tonic was pretty tasty and the bartender was really nice. No food is served there, but there’s Tito’s Tacos and Cinco de Mayo down the street where you can buy some Mexican food and take it back to the bar to eat. The crowd is on the eclectic side, but overall, it’s a fun spot to hang.

Small yet comfortable not a big crowd just enough have a good time and feel the spirit and The Crew That’s rounded. I enjoyed myself.

I came to LA to visit for a week, never being there I assumed there would definitely be some cool spots (the only issue there being TOO many spots)! Long story short – I was on the hunt for a dive with some great live music. Definitely found that here! I liked it so much I went twice! If you’re into a relaxed time, casual conversation, live music, and friendly people- go! Bartenders couldn’t have been more welcoming!

This place rocks! How have I missed this place?! Well, it IS a little small, but it has a HUGE heart and a fun, rock n’ roll kinda vibe. The locals are cool, and the newbies are welcomed!! Great bar service and usually has live music or cranking jukebox!! Go have fun, I sure did!!

Mellow little dive bar with good drinks, a patio, and live music! Lots of old-timers line the bar, with friendly bartenders ready to serve. No frills, just an unpretentious place to chill.
