This Culver City bar/restaurant sports an old-school Chicago vibe, gourmet American eats (bison burgers & truffle fries), and six different eating & drinking areas all under one roof.
Late-night nosh-and-drink menus are all anyone in LA ever wants after a long night out. Stop by Scratch|Bar to indulge in all of the finer things in life (or just of your night... ).
This vaunted Italy-via-NY/Miami boot foodery's got a sleek patio, unfinished dark wood floors & custom wine cabinetry, and's doling out seasonal goodness like scialatielli w/ dungeness crab & sea urchin, and duck & foie gras ravioli.
Get ready for an eclectic range of ace cocktails -- shaken, stirred, and on-tap -- at this Culver City favorite. The lineup ranges from the smoky Taco Truck with mezcal, pineapple, and cinnamon-infused Campari to the Jesse Pink Gin with gin, bitters, coconut liqueur, and orgeat. Don't miss out on their seasonal hits either, like the Goonies menu with the whisky-hazelnut-cacao combo of the Truffle Shuffle and the rye-espresso-coconut of the Mama Fratelli. With a knockout food menu from Birch’s Brendan Collins, you'll want to stay put for a few rounds.
This patio'd gastrobistro from the former Palihouse guy is an expansive, open space w/ a huge communal table, suede banquettes, and a copper-topped bar serving up unusual cocktails.
This bar-staurant (which features projections of burlesque dancers flanking the entrance and tin ceiling tiles imported from NY over the dining room) has a half-off wells/ beer/ wine happy hour that's both generous and liberating.
Presumably owned by a dude who you're already on a first-name basis with, Jay's Bar is attempting to split the difference between dive and gastropub, with a no-frills, common-table-and-stool-and-TV interior, a dozen taps with everything from Deschutes to Nut Brown, plus eats like chili-lime dry-rubbed chicken wings and grilled bratwurst w/ sweet and sour red cabbage & crispy smashed potatoes.
From the family behind next-door's long-running Leonardo's nightclub, this upscale taqueria's bedecked with dangling candelabras and aged leather-and-wood seating, with grub like Camarones a la Diablo o Rancheros.
