    Pool table, dance floor, after a few drink here you'll feel like the boxer over the door. Use that energy for dancing!

    When it's Bloody Mary time, come here. When it's pool time, come here. When the Chiefs are undefeated, come here.

    Don't really see the buzz of this place. Long line on weekends, not so sure it's worth it. However, there is an amazing Philly cheesesteak truck late night. I'm a Philly native and I approve. Get one.

    Check out the monthly First Friday event on Abbot Kinney Blvd. Art galleries stay open late, serve up free wine, and have live music. Then hit up a food truck in The Brig’s parking lot for yummy food. Read more
