Need to find a great place for a girls night out dinner in the Hollywood area
Taking the bride and 8 gals out for a "girls night out" and I need recs for a fun, good, not too pricey place to have dinner in the Hollywood/ the Grove area. Needs to have a fun atmosphere, good food and a full bar. Some of the gals are foodies and we were orginally going to go to AOC but they are a wine bar only... Any ideas?
Try this again...
Lola's isn't going to blow you away with the food but the full bar is there, the atmosphere is lively and young (25-30ish) and you can dance after dinner.
Same with the Abbey, except the food is a bit more expensive and parking is a pain in the butt (use the valet down the street)... but the drinks are great, the music is fantastic and you can reserve a "lounge" in the back with big squooshy cushions. And for the most part you don't have to worry about the bride getting in trouble with the guys there.
I highly recommend Bar Marmont for this outing (not to be confused with the Chateau up the hill.) Great food at just above moderate prices, great bar areas, and a fun party crowd. One stop shop.
Another option might be the Foundry on Melrose.
N.B. Regarding an earlier rec, I don't think Tasca has a full bar, unless that's a recent addition.
