An offshoot of the Denver-based, now national mini-chain, Tom’s Urban is a New American gastropub with international flavor in LA Live. The sprawling space is loaded with craft beer, signature craft cocktails, and a diverse menu with eclectic, elevated bar food, with items like the Mini Mac & Cheese Pot with pork-green chile carnitas, pizzas (there’s a cheesesteak-style pizza!), fried frogs legs, burgers, and banh mi, among them. At Tom’s, there are over two dozen beers on tap, and well over 50 flatscreen TVs — you’ll never miss a game, and you certainly won’t go hungry (or thirsty).
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.
This BBQ spot/sports bar is a fine place to get loaded up with some serious grub -- get some rib tips, creamy mac 'n cheese, and an assortment of hot links.
Bigfoot West is the Culver City sister to Bigfoot Lodge in Atwater Village. Not only do they share a name, but a log cabin theme. Bigfoot West, in all its wood-paneled, taxidermy-wielding glory, will make you feel like you've left Culver City for the wilderness. (Don't panic! You haven't.) Bigfoot’s got over 100 whiskies on offer -- over half of them small-batch bourbons -- with a cocktail program that features infusions, shrubs, sherbets, purees, jams, and other culinary influence. Step into the cabin-like confines of Bigfoot West for expertly crafted cocktails and an escape to the wilderness.
Right across the street from Fantasy Island, this bar's NorCal'd up w/ a Golden Gate mural and brews like Anchor Steam, as well as an incredibly thick burger, which's thankfully not a Sex and The City reference...or is it?
