Can anyone recommend a place on the east side (Silver Lake/Los Feliz/Downtown/Pasadena) that is good and has a full bar.

Edendale has a great bar and a bad restaurant - so that's out.

Thanks in advance

    I'd do Cliff's Edge. Good food, and they make a great drink.

      We like Dusty's-- have had pretty good dinners there (love their breast of chix) and looks like a full bar... also, Cafe Stella -- we just were there for their "designer" burger.

        I second Dusty's. Does Stella have a full bar? I thought it was just wine.
        Vermont is always good. And the outside patio at Cliff's Edge is really lovely. They have fun cocktails, but food is hit and miss.

          Stella only has beer and wine.

            Looked at Dusty's but they only have a beer/wine license too. But maybe another time. Thanks for the recs.

            Can anyone think of anything downtown or Pasadena? I do appreciate it.

              How about Blue Velvet downtown?

        I think Edendale has gotten better. We often eat at the bar and select from the bar menu: http://www.edendalegrill.com/
