1. Essex Public House 6683 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, CA 90028

Opening Thursday, Essex is a casual gastropub laser-focused on its menu and beer list, with two distinct interior sections designed by the Kitchen 24 dude: a patio-looking entrance room w/ red-brick floor, exposed-duct ceiling, and two monstrous chalkboards w/ food and drink menus, while further inside's an oak-topped, wrought-iron-bottomed bar, surrounded by high-top black leather banquettes and mismatched light fixtures -- so, much like your grandparents house, without the sneaking suspicion a Life Alert commercial is about to go down.
