Anybody been to West End Craft Cocktail and Bar on Westwood Blvd?

  • 5

Looks like they renovated or maybe I just never noticed it before? Any experiences to share? Menu looks interesting.

  1. Website is useless -- no menu or info that I could click up.

    How can a new business in today's times be so inept?

      1. re: kevin

        Whoa, hold your horses. You actually clicked something, kev?

        All kidding aside, I actually like Koutoubia and West End (same affable owner; the properties are adjacent and are connected). The couscous is good, and I especially like their chicken dishes. In fact, Koutoubia/West End actually may a Chowmeet-worthy destination.

        1. re: J.L.

          was i not supposed to click on that link ????? oh, i get it, now, usually those are links to porn or pharm med stock prices in Canada ???????

          and more convenient for us West LA-located Chow meters.

          and another added benefit:

          ice teller is very very very close by.

          1. re: kevin

            I stand corrected. I could swear that when I was on the home page a few hours ago -- repeatedly -- the choices in the upper left colored in purple were not there. I apologize.
