A rock bar with attitude, Snitch caters to adventurers seeking an alternative to the generic club scene—not to pretty young things like its trendy former next-door neighbor, the now-closed Vela. Any celeb you see here is liable to be of the VH-1 variety, like at a Camp Freddy concert featuring members of Jane's Addiction and Guns 'N Roses. As you might expect, the music is '80s rock staples—think "Love in an Elevator"—and though space is limited, people are definitely dancing to Aerosmith. Yes, the club is dark. And yes, there are tough guys in chains. Snitch gets its fair share of indie and A-list bands—Marilyn Manson and Metallica have been booked to play shows on the club's circular stage. On the rare nights when there's no live music, you can count on a more low-key crowd, when televised sports games are liable to be the featured entertainment.Open Bar
