Everybody knows your name, or they soon will, at this loud, elbow-to-elbow, almost-an-icon watering hole where barkeeps skillfully explain 30+ beers on tap. Just don’t ask for substitutions on their decadent burger. A second location (3229 Helms Ave) is now drawing crowds to the Helms Bakery Complex in Culver City.
It may be new, but this nocturnal New York–style pub is the bar of choice for bartenders and waitstaff looking for a late-night toddy. It’s small, so arrive early for a table. Some swear the burger, cooked just as requested, is a life-changing experience. The cast of Heroes occasionally drops by for lunch.
