Silver Lake’s self-described "Community Pub" may seem like a typical neighborhood gastropub—unfussy cocktails and eight beers on tap alongside pub fare like the Hyperion Burger ($14) and mac and cheese ($8-$10)—but tucked away in an elevated backroom, a "Hidden Pub," where a black tin ceiling and black leather banquets meet a long bar of televisions, provide a backdrop for weekly game and movie nights. Locals also gather for happy hour (Mon-Thu 3-7pm, Fri noon-7pm) featuring $4 beer or wine and $5 well cocktails or beer and a bump, and get their Sunday brunch on (11am-2pm) with breakfast egg sandwich and morning burger options.
Good for: Football and beers, Wednesday move night, (after the game, around 9:30pm) and Thursday karaoke night (9:30pm), so warm up with a shot and get your vocals on.
The scene: Eastside locals stop in for beers and their sports fix, while couples cozy up in banquettes—booths are also available to reserve for optimal game day viewing—that line the room, some in darker corners than others. Late nighters drop in for a last call beer and the chance to run into singles on the prowl.
The playlist: The occasional live piano or guitar set play in the upstairs bar.
The bartender says: If you’re a local and plan on becoming a regular, be sure to check out their loyalty program where points earned will get you credits on future bills.
Drink this: This isn’t the place to order a Manhattan or Side Car, so stick to tap. Allagash Black ($8)—a chocolate-y, malted, Belgian-style stout—is a good bet or go with an Allagash White ($7), a spice-driven, Belgian wheat beer. There's also Stone IPA ($6), which is delightfully high in alcohol and hoppiness.

Yet another delicious Dine LA option for me! Located in the ever trendy SilverLake, HP makes its home here. I love how they have an indoor space as well as an outdoor patio. The indoor part is very quaint but tables are very close to each other. I think when I tried getting out of the booth, my butt was totally in the other table.
The menu was a great 3 course menu where I opted for the 4 cheese Mac, Steak Frites, and chocolate cake. the mac and cheese is absolutely HUGE and can certainly be a meal in itself - I may have eaten too much of that since I was way too full later in the evening.
The Steak Frites was beautifully cooked but did think that it was drowned it way too much sauce. My friend had the seabass but unfortunately it was very dry - they later provided a sauce to help with the flavor. The dessert was where it missed the mark for me. I didn't think the chocolate cake was very good as it lacked any richness in cocoa flavor.
What made this place even better is that we came right before happy hour was going to end (7pm). We managed to get 2 drink orders in before it was over! The moscow mule is a good choice for a great deal!
This is a fun place to go with a group for karaoke. The food and drinks aren't terrible, aren't amazing, but it's an easy neighborhood spot and the song list is pretty solid.
