    A dark-paneled bar tucked into an unlikely corner of West L.A., the Wellesbourne features craft cocktails and a lively yet laid-back scene of after-work drinkers and cocktail aficionados alike. Read more

    The drinks menu has a basics vibe, but don’t let that stop you from asking a bartender to whip up something original for you. Patrons forget that The Wellesbourne has a skilled and creative bar staff. Read more

    I finally got to visit The Wellesbourne last night. It exceeded my expectations and is now my new L.A. fave! Try the Cucumber Mint Martini and the Blackberry Gimlet with a flaming orange garnish. Wow!

    Keep it classy. Old mahogany feel with large leather chairs and great mixologists. Sit by the fire and ponder life w your friends as you sip down an Old Fashioned. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Live music is great - current samples and a great DJ in the off time. Awesome RnB tunes! Way too loud for a date, though. Drinks are so so and they so offer $4 valet parking.

    Service is SLOW, so you might want to be finishing yours while you wait at the bar for a refill, but they make a first-rate vodka gimlet. Park at Westside Pavilions garage across the street for free.

    Come early to snag prime seating by the fireplace. Great group hang out in an antique style library setting. No table service: All food/drinks must be ordered at the bar.

    This place was fun great atmosphere for the younger crowd. Drinks were well poured and the music was House. Great Experience I would recommend this place for 30 and under.

    This is the Westside less expensive equivalent of the Edison (minus the speakeasy part). Really great vibe and anywhere that has Strongbow on tap gets an A+ from me!

  • Christopher L.

    This place is awesome, let the mixologists work their magic and get creative, I recommend the manhattan. Avoid the $11 delirium, it's good but it's no Unibroue

    You can't help feeling a bit like Harry Potter as you sip on one of their delightful libations while sitting next to the roaring fireplace sipping on a Brandy Alexander. Read more

    The first 2 parking spots outside turn into passenger loading zones after 7pm. Takes a bit to see it on the meter's scrolling message, but it is legit if they tell you you can't park in the first 2.

    TheWellesbourne’s main attraction is its 30-foot bar, which spans its stunning library, a cool game room (shuffleboard, anyone?) and cozy living room. Read more

    Fun vibe. Library theme is cool, fireplace is nice, and drinks are potent!! 🍹🍺🍻. Wear something nice though.

  • Daniela G.

    Parking's easy (mall/street/cheap valet). Drinks are fairly priced, but if you're adventurous, let the waiter create a drink for you. It's worth the wait!

    Daniela G · January 17, 2014
  • Mayumi M.

    order the "norito," drink. A hidden Wellesbourne drink- Its fairly cheap and taste like yummy applepie w/a dash of cinnamon!

    Mayumi Miyasato · July 16, 2011
  • Amanda S.

    Slow service but only because they're perfectionists. They'll reserve tables for your bday celebration for free! Try the Grasshopper.

    You'll feel like you're at some secret society's house party. Skip the Valet, you can usually find parking on Pico - even on weekend nights.

    Always have fun here; service is great and crowd is diverse. More down to earth than your stereotypical Westside bar.

  • Jeana P.

    One of my favorite bars on the west side. All the bar tenders are knowledgeable and the drinks are made to perfection.

    Mishka knows how to make a pretty awesome old fashioned. Just be sure to order it trash out with a little bit less sugar.

    Phenomenal! Everything from the drinks to the atmosphere to the bar tenders are great here!

    Best vodka gimlets, cool atmosphere, but I'd come on a weekday. This place gets too damn crowded!

    Mercedes McLemore · January 11, 2012

    Get the table area by the fireplace on a Monday night

    Erik McIntyre · February 4, 2014

    Great library themed bar to stop off for a drink if you're waiting for a table nearby.

    You can get a weak open Wi-Fi signal if you sit by the front windows.

    Best Vesper Martini I've had so far. Good cocktail and beer menu

    Cool bar to hang. Different areas to have a drink with friends. #@ the bar #Fireplace #Pico

    Ask Steve to make you a Steve Cider. It's like a mojito with gin.

    On Saturday night the tunes were amazing - 90s hip hop and RnB

    Rehi Alaganar · February 24, 2015
  • Reg L.

    Meh. Too loud, too dark, and the bar tenders aren't great. Bring earplugs.

    Foooooosball. Awesome dig. Feel like I'm in a cozy pocket of Bruce Wayne's mansion

  • Jan E.

    Terrible, waiting for now 1 hr to have one of the 3 bartenders make 2 drinks for me/ clearly understaffed.

    Jan Egge · November 1, 2012

    Loud, dark, and narrow. Avoid at all costs.

    Bar recommended by Charlie. Kind of hipstery/mediocre service/Crowded. Well reviewed on yelp

    Farhan Khalaf · October 10, 2012
  • Josh P.

    Takes about an hour to get a drink, even on a slow night.
