A bar/restaurant with a down-to-earth vibe for a wrap party
Need recs on a bar/restaurant/space in the greater Hollywood area for a wrap party.
We want - something Chicago-ey. A place where people can lock in and drink beer. No trendy bars needed: We want darts, pool, beer.
(Something like Tin Horn Flats - but bigger.)
A space that can be converted into such a party. For 250 people.
They have the beer, the Hollywood History, the darts, nice outdoor patio, but pool tables? (rentable for the party?). From their web home page:
"We are available for location rentals and fabulous wrap, press, and private parties. For Catering Info please call between the hours of 12 noon – 7pm and ask to speak to the manager on duty."
The Cat & Fiddle
6530 Sunset Blvd.
L.A. (Almost in Hollywood)
Sorry, but Cat & Fiddle is a big yawn -- everyone in the biz has been there in they're 20's and there's nothing "special" about it.
What about Edendale Grill in Silverlake? Yeah, the foods so-so (but it's a wrap party so it'll do) but the atmosphere is the best -- very old time Hollywood as Silverlake is where they shot so many of the silent movies and the restaurant is similiary themed.
There's also Cliff's Edge in Silverlake which has a fantastic patio --
Also redid HOME for a more casual vibe -- also has a nice patio, more casual than CE.
My husband had his bachelor party at H Billiards and said the food was surprisingly good --
I encourage you to do something unique, I've been to many disappointing wrap-parties and I'm sure your crew deserves something different and fun --
Thanks, all. C & F (and the Pig & Whistle) have already been shut down...because we've all been to C & F a billion times. Christ, I can't count the # of birthdays I've been to on that patio...
I would also recommend Hollywood Billiards. They are really easy to work with planning events, there's an upstairs you can reserve. Plus the prices are decent. For a pool hall, the food is good.
