    VIBE

    A taste of Tinseltown glamour (tempered with a heaping spoonful of Tinseltown kooky), served up alongside smashing pub food and the delicious prospect of celeb sightings. The space manages to pack in quite a few disparate design elements, all of which probably fit under that catch-all heading "Hollywood": a classic Bogart-esque oak bar, unsettling flocks of fake monarch butterflies, a stuffed peacock on guard-duty, a plush seating area with chandeliers straight out of a French chateau, and black and white photos of people you feel like you should recognize. The more straightforward menu, on the other hand, is all about the classics: Euro-style pub fare fancied up with some conservatively creative haute cuisine touches.

    CROWD

    The crowd is as eclectic as the décor, ranging from big name étoiles to locals who like the burgers and the tunes to out-of-towners sampling "Hollywood glamour."

    WHAT WE WOULD WEAR

    Aim somewhere between dressy jeans and a party dress–think hot jeans with a smokin’ top. Something sharp enough to fit in at a classic Hollywood hotel…but also relaxed enough to roll with the cool-without-trying gastropub vibe.

    WHY WE LIKE IT

    We love the deliciously posh yet quirky décor, the scene, and the decadent take on pub grub. We were also pleasantly surprised by the engaging and friendly staff–unusual for a spot with this much cachet in LA.

    WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE

    The later you go, the stricter they get at the door. This is a hotspot for cocktails, and there is no guaranteed entry for non-hotel guests or those without reservations.

    GOOD TO KNOW

    If you’re looking for a romantic tête-à-tête, try the plush mezzanine tables on a weeknight. For those interested in pedigree, Chef Carolynn Spence first made her name at The Spotted Pig in New York.
