Visited here around 1130pm for the reverse happy hour. They have a couple cocktails for $7 and cans/bottles of beer for $4 for happy hour. The cocktail we got wasn't too special but the beers were great (I always prefer beer). Ordered the hen house bowl and spicy fries. Both were excellent and portion size was surprisingly large. The bowl took a while to make since they had to make more rice but they gave us a free dessert thing to make up for it. Parking was easy to find at this time and there was ample seating. Definitely recommend coming for happy hour if you're up late enough.

One of my new favorite spots to eat! Everything I've tried on the menu has been delicious so far. The service is great! Feels like you are at a nice bar/lounge without any stress of looking dressed or spending lots of money. You must be 21 and over to enter. There is seating at the bar and a few lounge couches and some outdoor patio seating. I plan on trying everything on their menu! For now, I have tried the following: -three tacos: very tasty and filling with different choices of meat. -chilaquiles: I'm Mexican and I love chilaquiles. These are not your typical ones. They have this unique kick to them. Chicken, but I believe you can request a different meat. Also, I ate about 1/6 of it and was stuffed. The leftovers tasted just as delicious. -Burrito: not the wet one, the regular burrito. I had it with chicken and it was really good. i asked for some green salsa on the side, which made it even better. -Blackjack Quesadilla: ah-maze-balls! I loved it. Super cheesy and the pork meat was yummy. Comes with the delicious green salsa on top. Great share too! That's my fatty report for this place...for now. I haven't had drinks here, yet. Also, the prices are unbeatable for the quality of the food! Some parking in the back and street parking. Don't forget your ID!

The food can't be beat and the atmosphere is top-notch. Make sure you get there early if you want a seat, especially on weekends.

I am completely addicted to the kimchi here. In fact, I crave it. It's absolutely ridiculous good. The rest of the food is also. We've never had a bad meal here. We generally get to go as this place can be a bit of a scene. Parking is tough, so be prepared to drive around a bit. The staff is friendly enough. Nobody really stands out but I don't have a particular complaint about anyone. I once asked for a huge amount of kimchi and the kitchen/food runner were very cool about it and hooked me up quite nicely. Great beer menu - many great choices. Overall, I highly recommend the food. You must try the kimchi! Did I mention that?

When they say on a street corner they really mean on a street corner. The front door is a little oddly placed, but once that opens you're a little shocked to see a bouncer. Whoa cheers never had a bouncer. Sorry for that jump. I'm likening Alibi to Cheers, the local hangout from that 80's show with the same name. My god friends like right up the way so for them and soon to be me this will be the go to. If you know me by now I may call this Omti's of West LA. I'm quite impressed at the atmosphere, the juke box had some fresh mixes. Dim lit, but not overly dark. Booths and sconce lighting. Vape friendly. Old school fountain tap's since the bar is circular they have no wall to mount them to. Well put together beer, wine and food menu. I got the feeling the owner is German due to the heavy European/German beer count. Quite a bit of micro craft brews, all very eclectic. I hadn't had about 3-4. Despite being somewhat hungry we passed on the food. It's rated and looked good though. Next time as we had food trucks to chase. Beers were decent prices 6-8 considering the variety. People don't seem to realize that Kogi is Korean for "meat" so Kogi beef is "meat beef". Doesn't sound so appetizing now does it. Still a great selling point throwing in some ethnic sounding name they appear to be tapping into the food truck game a bit here with the taco's and whatnot. I didn't venture outside, but I believe I saw the flicker of a firepit. Didn't break the seal either so no word on the restrooms. Service was pretty good with a dedicated bar back. Bartender took care of when she could, waited maybe a minute or two, tops. It was actually kind of loud for a lounge, which made me think it's more bar but their hours are more lounge. I'll have to come back again with specific intention to check out the rest of it, but I'm a big fan already.

Really chill place. I go here all the time primarily because it's close to my house and it has never disappointed. Good drinks and a relaxed environment. Oh, and the food is awesome! They have a consolidated menu, which is positive for me because I am not personally a fan of lengthy overwhelming menus. If you're ever to stop by, be sure to check out the kogi sliders & kogi tacos!

What I liked: the Kogi and Chego options on the menu. What I loved: that it's a fun place for after-work, late night weekends, or happy hour. What could be better: it's pretty happenin' even on a mid-weekday night; sometimes, it could be hard to find seats. With that said, the noise level, too. AMBIENCE The dark, textured stone exterior is marked with a neon 'Alibi' sign. The interior vibrates with a trendy feel - one wouldn't be able to tell from the street. Like a lot of hip bars / lounges, the noise level isn't low so don't expect to hold intimate conversations unless you can project them to your neighbors. Just grab a special cocktail or opt for a beer and enjoy some good eats via Kogi Korean BBQ & Chego! FOOD * Kogi Three Taco Combo: corn tortilla, slaw, cilantro, onions, salsa roja, choice of short rib, bbq chicken, spicy pork, or tofu - $7. A really popular choice. * Calamari tacos: grilled calamari with sweet chili sauce on soft tortillas. Much more spicy than sweet - good if you enjoy a kick! $7. Comes with 2. * Sour Cream Hen House Bowl: marinated grilled chicken (if you're vegg, ask for tofu), rice, fried egg, Chinese broccoli, sour cream sambal, Thai basil, toasted sesame, red jalapeno - $9. Not a light dish, but so scrumptious. * Chef Roy's Weekly Specials: always delicious - keep your eyes peeled! PARKING Washington Blvd. or side streets.
