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.

We live about a few blocks away from Alibi room. For all of you that don't know, this is the brick and mortar store for Kogi truck. Everything in the truck's menu is on here plus a wide selection of beers and alcohol. I normally avoid this place on the weekends and it is hard to find a seat at the bar. However I can see why it's so popular. The food is delicious and cheap. Crowd is cool and mellow. There is street parking as the small lot is normally always filled up.

Alibi room is the brain child of Roy Choi, and serves all the food you can find at the infamous Kogi truck. Naturally, my Korean friend wanted to meet up here for dinner. I was lucky to come early enough to score one of maybe 5 parking spots in a cramped lot. Alibi room is pretty much a straight- up bar that happens to serve food, so it got more and more crowded and loud as the night wore on. However, it was pretty empty when we walked in and the bartender had some time to talk us through the menu. We opted to share the tofu and citrus salad, chicken quesadillas, and calamari tacos. Honestly each dish was better than the last, and way better than the kogi truck if I can remember correctly. Maybe it was the ambiance? No idea. Sharing was also a great way to sample a variety of dishes, with the bill ending up being really inexpensive. If I had to pick, I would choose the chicken and salad over the calamari, but everything was really good. Alibi turns into a full-on bar around 8 or 9, at which point you should either start drinking or get out because personal space becomes non-existent as people stake out your place at the bar. At that point I was ready peace anyway. The food here was really good, and I'd definitely come back for dinner.

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?

Great way to get food from the Kogi Truck without stalking it down or waiting in line! It opens late (dinner time) and it is closed on Sunday. If you're coming after 10, be prepared to show your ID at the door! I haven't been here yet for reasons other than to grab food to-go. But might check it out soon :)

They serve Kogi and Chego! YUM! Upon entering, this place looked really small but there's plenty of seating around the bar area and it actually felt really cozy huddled around my friends. We waited a bit and got a table next to the fireplace with really comfy seating. The drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) were absolutely delicious! They even have a drink named after Breaking Bad, one of my all time favorite TV shows! My friend ordered this drink and i had a sip of it and I must say, it was quite tasty with an interesting hint of spiciness! For the non-alcoholic drinks, we ordered the ginger beer and that really blew me away. I usually don't like ginger but there was only a hint of it in this drink, and it was really refreshing. For the food we ordered combo Kogi tacos with chicken, and short ribs. They were both tasty and flavorful and we gobbled them up pretty quick. The best part was that we didn't have to wait in a one hour line outside a food truck for these tacos! We also actually had an order of fries which they forgot to write down so they gave us an extra order of Kogi pork tacos as a free replacement. Our only complaint about this place is with one of the bartenders at the bar. My friends were waiting there for awhile and they said they felt ignored when they tried to place their orders. To be fair they did seem a little understaffed at the time, but customer service could be improved. Tip* There's a small parking lot but plenty of street parking nearby.

Alibi room hasn't shared anything with you.

People are more likely to share with you if you add them to your circles.
