Retrace key scenes from Swingers and you'll end up here, settled in for an evening with inimitable musical duo Marty & Elayne. A beacon of genuine, unironic kitsch, nothing has changed here in umpteen years, from the corkboard walls to the wrought-iron lighting fixtures.

Drink and dine in an old school Hollywood time capsule.  Filming location for everything from Mad Men to Swingers (note the shabby poster/tshirts for sale), the 70s dining room and dark parlour are everything you'd want in a neighborhood watering hole.  The Blood and Sand blended drink is listed as a signature cocktail, and boy is it strong.  If you're looking for a great spot to hang out with friends or enjoy an old school steak dinner (though it's probably no Lawry's), this is the place.
