The Viper Room, on the south side of Sunset Boulevard is one of the younger clubs on the Sunset Strip, having opened in 1993. It is best known for being partly owned by Johnny Depp when it opened and for the overdose death of actor River Phoenix that occurred on the sidewalk out front in October 1993.

There are two concert venues inside the club, the main stage upstairs and the tiny Downstairs at the Viper Room, which is obviously down in the basement.
