Zumaya's on Melrose

Haven't been there in years but am going to see a play nearby and would like to have a few drinks before the show. Can you go there for drinks only? Any other bars on Melrose besides Lucy's in that immediate walking area.

    Don't know if you want real drinks or if wine is ok, but Lou on Vine would be a great choice if wine and beer will fill the bill. Otherwise it's hard to argue with a Lucy's margarita.
    RIP those champagne cocktails at Nickodell...

      Zumaya's went out of business around 2 or so years ago, and was replaced by Pueblo Viejo. 323.464.0624.
      Not sure about the bar setup, but does serve mixed drinks.

        Thanks. That's good to know. I'll have to try it for dinner sometime.

        I had a really good meal there about a year ago - tequila was good too! IIRC there was a small bar.
