Fun lunch places for teenage girls in L.A.?

  • j

I'm looking for a fun place to take my daughter and four of her friends for her 13th birthday lunch. Any suggestions for fun -- and good -- eateris in the L.A. Area?

  1. The LA area is enormous. What part of LA?

      You're right -- LA is huge. Let's narrow it down to Downtown, Glendale, Pasadena, and Hollywood.

        Anything but sushi. Since there will be about 8 or 9 people, I'd say under $25 per person.

      2. How about Lucky Strike? It's a 'hip' spot right in Hollywood, they can bowl while waiting for food, and there's shopping all around:

          I thought Lucky Strike was 21 and up only, but after checking the website, that's only after 7pm.

        2. At least my rec is within the under $25 each range -- Farrell's Ice Cream Parlour.After all, turning 13 is something to sound the siren and beat a drum about. We have enjoyed 2 birthdays there in the last 18 months and will go again before the end of summer. We have gone in a group of 8 and 11. This place can handle any size party. The sandwiches (Gastro....?) are actually pretty good because both the bread is good and so are the meats. The pizza is better than it was all those years ago, much better than that rat place, but not great. This place is still about birthday parties and ---- ICE CREAM.

          Afer the party their is the whole Mountasia fun center which has a nice indoor arcade with Lazer Tag, Rock Climbing Wall, and out-side there are Two 18-Hole Miniature Golf Courses, Go Karts, Bumper Boats and Batting Cages. Check out the links below. I feel it is worth the drive. We all drive to Farrell's from SGV.

              Think about it. What more would a car full of young girls (or any of us for that matter) like to do after a party than have time to be close to each other to chat and LOL, chat more and LOL and... Anyway, thats what my group does on the drive back to SGV. A "get-together."

          1. Fred Segal on Melrose . Bet they would just love it.

              Great idea! You must have a 13 year old...
