Christmasy spot feeling humbug

johnnyshungry Dec 14, 2009 05:33 PM

I need a good dose of cheer.
A place for a drink or some food that will make me feel all christmasy as I'm feeling a bit humbug.
Have christmas dinner at the Smokehouse every year it's a hoot but could really use some cheer a.s.a.p.
Any ideas.
Hotel bar to Dining thats decked out with a holiday overdose.
Thanks folks!

    Reviving this post from last year to see what's new
    From weho/bev hills to los feliz..
    And as much as I want a burger I am avoiding the grove/ farmers market .

      thanks folks.
      well it was after christmas but before the new year and made it to Tam O'Shanter hung over and it fit the lunch bill perfectly.
      Rainy outside fireplace inside and the sandwich bar for chili and sammy's.
      I live near and always forget about this place but firmly implanted it.
      Thanks again

        Tam O Shanter Inn in Los Feliz may have the christmasy but not over-the-top christmasy type feeling you're looking for.

          A holiday tradition with us is breakfast or lunch at O'Malley's on Main Street in Seal Beach. In December they have beautiful decorations up that make this Irish pub even cozier, especially if you get a spot near the fireplace across from the bar. There's a patio too, for warmer weather. Good food all year long!

          Sorry, the Chow link doesn't seem to recognize this place. There are four Irish pubs/bars on Main, but O'Malley's is the only one on the south side of the street.

            Although I have never been, I know people that go to Tom Bergin’s every year for its Christmas Carolers. I just called Bergin's and was told the dates this year are: December 16-17 and December 20-21, two shows nightly at 7:15PM and 9:15PM.

            Tom Bergin's Tavern
            840 S. Fairfax Avenue
