    Great place with high ceilings, dim lighting, and cheap beers. Playing neat old movies on the tvs and decent music on the stereo

    No happy hour and only 6 taps? There's other bars on Melrose

    Great place! Their food and drinks are good and decently priced. They show movies on the tv (Jurassic Park!!) and there's an oldschool photobooth.

    These sweet potato fries are my perdition. Everytime.

    Good menu, and the food comes out pretty quickly. Side note, check before you sit to make sure there's more than one waitress/waiter. It was packed with only one server...

    MacCallan 18 for $15

    Nice bar, but the bathroom is a total wiener show.

    Awesome food and people. Try their turkey sandwich on pumpernickel bread with cranberry aioli. So so good. Also they are now open during the day so you can stop by for lunch!

    Watch the kiddos dance to 60's music and get something besides an overpriced Pabst.

    Grilled cheese and tomato soup is ridiculous.

    If you don't want beer or don't feel like a mixed drink, you can get a hard cider!

    This place has a douche factor of at least eight. I came to this bar after passing by and thinking that there might be an enjoyable LA vibe. Typical LA posers. The bartenders were nice though.

    Order the "Dan Clark"-- its an Alsolute with a splash of soda!!

    Blanche Agency · May 16, 2010

    The best bartenders, the best drinks and an all around good time!

    The large patio is perfect for smoking a cigar and watching the Big Lebowski on the TVs outside. There's no sound on the TVs, but who doesn't know every line to that movie?

    Erin G. · April 22, 2010
  • Blanche A.

    Great bartenders and fantastic vibe!
