What's a good place in Studio City/Sherman Oaks area.

I know of Casa Vega, but gets crowded if not there early. I also like Blue Dog Tavern, but no spirits.

Anything else with a good bar scene and something to nosh on before dinner.

    How about the Studio City Umami? Full bar and great burgers. http://umamiburger.com/menu/#5Valli

      Good luck on getting into Umami - insanely busy.
      Laurel Tavern, Rocco's Tavern in Studio City, Local Peasant in Sherman Oaks all good suggestions, yet all doing good business, so expect crowds and noise!
      Firefly might also work.

        As Yogi once said "Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded."

      I have heard good reports on The Local Peasant where Cozy's used to be on Ventura just east of Hazeltine across from Ralph's.

        I enjoyed Laurel Tavern in Studio City. Also the Loteria Grill.
