This Studio City gastropub focuses on hearty comfort food and a mix of cocktails, craft beers, and fine wine. The pub-style burgers (aka thick and juicy) come in six varieties that range from BBQ to bacon blue cheese, so you'll have no trouble finding the ideal burger for your tastes. Oh, and there are three kinds of fries (regular, gravy, and chili-cheese). Craving a burger and fries? Done and done.
When: Monday–Friday from 3–6 pm
This casual neighborhood staple is known for its standout bar food, burgers, and reasonably priced drinks. During the weekday happy hour you can choose from two beers, two cocktails (including the confident “Best Old Fashioned”), and take down $3 fish tacos and fried chicken sliders, or an $8 meat and cheese board. The brick-walled bar area has plenty of seats, plus a communal table, so grab a stool and start socializing with strangers again.
How to Book: Walk-ins only.
