Frolic Room

625 Hollywood Blvd
Los Angeles,
Bar Overview

The Frolic Room on the Hollywood Walk of Fame started its life as a speakeasy in 1930, while the country was still in the grips of prohibition. It opened as a legal bar in 1934 when prohibition ended. The dive bar with its art deco exterior and dazzling sign has seen enough stars, crime, sleaze and tragedy to make it a landmark along with its neighbor the Pantages, but it hasn’t been designated one. The walls feature caricatures of Groucho Marx and Albert Einstein, two people that probably didn’t drink there but plenty of other celebrities did.
