Birthday bar recs for Silverlake/Los Feliz/Eagle Rock

lempy May 8, 2007 12:55 PM

I'm looking for a bar recommendation for a birthday gathering for about 10-15 people in SL/LF/ER. I'd like someplace where we can hear each other (music not too loud). I was thinking someplace like Edendale/Mixville, but wanted to see if there were other suggestions out there.

    I love Mixville, but if you're going on a Friday or Saturday night be sure to get there early. It is a small space and gets really crowded. And if you get there early, you might be able to claim the back patio.

      Thanks...what do you mean by "early"?

        I mean that the bar is full by 9pm. It's a small bar. And the back patio fills up quickly with smokers after that. You might be able to call ahead and reserve some tables on the patio, but I'm not sure they allow that.

      Red Lion?

        I think you can reserve tables on the back patio for a group, call and ask.
        Other possibilities -- Malo, El Chavo.
        I like Johnnie's but there's no food.

          Johnnie's on Sunset has been closed now for a few months. A pity - I liked it too...

          I wonder if they'd let you take over the top floor of El Conquistador (Sunset and Edgecliff), where the little bar is housed. The food's overpriced, but the margaritas don't mess around.
