BEST Sangria??

Where can I find the best sangria in the Hollywood/West Hollywood/Beverly Hills area? Not too sweet, authentic, and full of fruit! Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  1. La Paella is an authentic (i.e. Spanish-owned) Spanish restaurant. Their sangria is quite good. They're on San Vicente several blocks south of the Beverly Center.

    1. The sangria at Cha Cha Cha is pretty good. Only downside is that they use lemons and oranges, which tastes great, but personally I prefer an all-edible sangria.

        The Courtyard in Hollywood and Primitivo in Venice both serve pretty decent Sangria and both serve Tapas/Small plates

          You don't eat lemons or oranges? Not even to nibble after they've been soaking? Heck, that's called "dessert"...

        2. I'm a big fan of the Sangria (I believe they call in Ponche but if you ask for Sangria you're set)at Bossanova Restaurants. They have locations in Hollywood (Sunset and La Brea) West Hollywood (Robertson & Santa Monica Blvd) and Beverly Hills (on Beverly Dr 2 blks North of Olympic)
          The food is really good here too!

          1. Surprisingly, the Sangria at Versailles is rather tasty. I find myself drinking Sangria and eating the fried yuca appetizer and tostones when I have to go there.

            1. I cant believe I'm posting this but besides my love for my homemade Sangria, Im going to have to put my two cents for LaLa's. Although the food is just OK, I really dont mind grabbing a pitcher or two of their sangria. It's quite tasty.
