Adjacent to Canter's dining space is the Kibitz Room, a 1961 addition that is also a cocktail lounge. It is a particularly congenial haven for music, featuring a full bar and small stage. Every evening the Kibitz Room is jamming with local bands and has become something of a Los Angeles scene. Back in the day, The Doors and Frank Zappa met in the Kibitz Room on Tuesday nights. Informal star-studded jam sessions began taking place where the groups would rehearse, schmooze, and kibbitz. Many, including Joni Mitchell, The Wallflowers, Rick James, Guns 'n' Roses, and members of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, have come here to hang out, sing, play, and most importantly to eat and drink. Now there is something going on in the Kibitz Room every night of the week. Most nights turning into jam sessions by midnight. Did you know that the word 'Kibitz' is the Yiddish word for offering friendly advice or wisecracking?

This is the unofficial Farmers Market Mardi Gras Party after-party. Hmmm... An after-party for a party? Only at LA Free Concerts! It's Ok to come by yourself--you won't be by yourself for long!
