Venice is a conundrum. It’s all locals and all tourists. And perhaps that’s the beauty of it—you’ll always fit in. Right where the tattoos meet the sea is where you’ll find Larry’s—under the infamous Venice sign. We are so glad it’s there, acting as a bridge between upscale and near and dear dives, Larry’s is our new legit lunching, happy hour-ing, and dining dig.
Head Chef Casey Lane came to Los Angeles from Portland two years ago, bringing with him a modern touch and an ever-changing style and menu that unsurprisingly has come to thrive in one of the most hip districts the city has to offer. His menu is equal parts spontaneity and forethought, and his long list of repeat patrons and satisfied foodies speaks volumes to his results.
The Spearmint Rhino has a brother and no, it doesn’t employ male strippers and it is not called the Wintergreen Panther. The 1616 Club and Restaurant, brought to you by the same guys that blessed you with the Rhino, opened its doors in the hopes of becoming your favorite pre-strip club joint. You get the same dancing, lush décor, attentive service and pricey drinks, but give up the nudity for an expansive menu.
These days, you don’t have to be an old buddy of Doc Brown just to travel through time for a couple stiff nightcaps. Citing it’s style as “parlor-plush,” just behind the elusive emerald entrance to which the Green Door owes its name lies a luxurious establishment that rapidly transports its tenants straight to 1930′s Paris; leaving room, of course, for the inflation necessary to maintain modern day Hollywood drink prices.
If you were to ask a Los Angeles outsider to envision the staples of a Hollywood lifestyle, the images they conjure would likely include partying poolside and fine dining in upscale establishments that pay tribute to Hollywood’s yesteryears. In a true best of both worlds scenario, Sunset Tower Hotel’s adjacent Terrace and Tower Bar offer patrons the chance to soak in all of the above.
Hidden in a Cahuenga strip mall in the middle of Hollywood, District 13 pairs brews with sausage, everything from brat to beef and lamb to elk. Whether you’re on your way to (or from…open til 2am) the Hollywood Bowl or just need a pork fix, this graffiti-walled little joint might be everything you’re looking for.
Inspired by middle school cafeterias (underage drinkers?), Public School 612 is focused on “An Education in the Art of Food and Beer.” Grab your pencils and pints, class is in session. So lately we’ve been hearing the word “gastropub” get thrown around a lot, but this place represents by offering craft beer from all round the world, eclectic small plates and nostalgic sodas.
If you’re an LA resident who hails from New Orleans, chances are you’ve already visited Hollywood’s answer to your hometown, Five0Four. And if you’re an LA resident who has ever visited New Orleans, chances are the grand majority of what you loved about the trip can be found within the walls of this fine establishment.
You only have to travel 15 stories above ground to experience LA’s vulnerability—its skyline–and to eat perfect beignets. At Perch, you’ll feel as though you’re in the suburbs due to the sheer vertical leverage you have on the passersby far below. No line, no list, this is the spot to take your visiting mom for brunch, to take a date for a sunset drink, or maybe just take yourself because that’s all you can afford.
The Redbury is one of the latest additions to SBE’s portfolio, but is a serious departure from the empire’s usual swanky endeavors. Not taking itself too seriously (yet), the hotel and its amenities play with an old school vibe adorned with vintage-y pieces, record players in the rooms and an inviting bright red color scheme.
