20s Birthday Party around Hollywood and West LA?

It's my birthday on the 3rd and a bunch of friends want me to put together a dinner on Saturday the 2nd. Budgets around 20-30 dollars per person with drinks and I was wondering if any of you have recommendations for a nice, chill, somewhat scene-y and still classy (but not too classy) restaurant around the Hollywood and West LA area?

I've so far looked into Trattoria Amicis at Glendale, Beechwood in Venice, Grand Lux at the Beverly Center, Saddle Ranch on Sunset.

Looking into a place that everyone would enjoy going to (as I have friends coming from OC and Riverside) on a night out in LA for dinner.


Trattoria Amici
469 N Doheny Dr, Beverly Hills, CA 90210

Saddle Ranch
8371 W Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90069

Grand Lux Cafe
121 N La Cienega Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90048

  1. $20-$30 a person? Impossible. The drinks at Beechwood are $16, but it is a perfect place for a birthday.

    Look into something like The Arsenal where drink prices are more reasonable. Upper West is another idea.

    Hollywood and West LA couldn't be further apart, I think you mean "or", as in WLA or HWood.

    Upper West
    3321 Pico Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90404

    1. How about Cafe La Boheme? They have happy hour on the weekend, nice $5-$7 cocktails, half-price appetizers and tasty entrees. It would fit your price range. Cool and a bit trendy, perfect for folks in their 20's. Fun West Hollywood neighborhood.

      Cafe La Boheme
      8400 Santa Monica Blvd., West Hollywood, CA 90069

      1. Again, sticking to happy hour prices, Wilshire in Santa Monica has a great patio if you make your meal that way.
