Great place to come if you’re making your way down Santa Monica Blvd bar hopping. You might almost miss the entrance and once inside it’s got a wood-heavy, dark saloon-looking interior but there’s enough room to dance and even with a big crowd, you don’t have to wait forever to get a drink. There’s a few big tables for bigger group parties. The overall crowd is friendly and not over the top like some of the other bars in the area.


Definitely a welcome spot in the West Hollywood scene. It's nothing mindblowing, but it's a nice place to grab a drink with friends. Obviously it can get busy, but they have ample space, pretty solid beer options, and some bar games as well if I remember correctly (like shuffleboard). If you have a big crowd coming out for a birthday party or event, call or email the bar beforehand as they are often nice enough to set aside some reserved space for your group.
