black listed 6/23/2008

i dont want to sound like a hater but the older asian lady who works the bar is mean and crazy. i went to smog cutter because i wanted to sing kareoke, not to drink. the bartender caught an attitude with me, expecting me to understand her over loud music with her thick accent. the service was terrible. she even approached me after i left the bar-stool to sit in the corner which bordered a pool table and the entrance. its not that i dont drink, i was just feeling lousy that night and after telling this to the bartender she said ""Well why don't you just go sit home?"" yea thanks for the advice, i'd rather be home than at a lame bar. peace. Pros: the crowd in the bar seemed easygoing, easy to find Cons: watch out for the older ________ with glasses! more

Ahh the cutter 7/26/2006

This was the first bar I ever went to when I arrived in LA from England. Its as friendly now as it was then (5 years ago). Its true its not the cheapest dive bar in town but everyone is super friendly and its a great place for a laugh.. its actually the kind of bar a woman could go alone and not feel weird. Charles Bukowski is said to have drank here (where didnt he?!) Pros: Friendly staff, great atmosphere, fun times Cons: Can get packed, hot in summer, not the cheapest dive bar more

Great little bar 10/26/2004

Great dive bar. The locals are friendly. However, it's a cash only place, so stop at the ATM before going. Also, Karaoke is every night except Tuesday night! more

Nice dive 6/11/2003

It's a dive but it's a friendly one. It ain't hard to talk to people and connect. Of course, the interior could be better but well, it has its own character. Pros: Cozy, Friendly, Cheap Cons: Old interior, Not enough girls more

unique place 7/19/2002

i love the smog cutter. the atmosphere is different everynight, but never full of typical hollywood attitude, bar staff are great, feisty, friendly and fun. a real regulars spot. more

Sunshine Rocks My World 6/13/2002

This place is great. Karaoke, beers, pool, karaoke, did I mention karaoke? On any given night you might catch a Scotsman belting out the Proclaimers or a fiery redhead doing Richard Marx covers. Go for the booze, stay for the floorshow! Pros: The manager is a babe, Karaoke is rad, I think I'm in love Cons: The manager is scary, Karaoke has no cons, She doesn't love me more

Scary but great! 6/12/2002

This bar is amazing. Besides good, cheap drinks, the bar also has karaoke almost every night and lots of volunteers to sing. I was able to talk a guy into doing a duet of ""Endless Love"" with me. That's just the kind of place that the Smog Cutter is. There's also a pool table, if you don't like to sing. Go and check it out. You might be scared of it at first, but it's worth it in the end. Pros: Great karaoke scene, Inexpensive Cons: Small, Somewhat daunting more

  • In Short
    You'll have to dodge pool cues on the way into this small, wood-paneled dive and wait awhile for drinks, but that's part of its charm. With no stage, hipsters and yuppies looking...
