We were in Barney’s on 20.12.2013. That’s the place where Columbo was eating his Chili in many episodes. Very traditional place, started in 1920, many Hollywood stars have been here. They have around 25 beers on tap and a large bottle selection. It’s not a beer place, we came here for the Chili and the tradition. Great food menu with huge selection. We had the traditional Chili which was very good paired with a Chocolate Porter from Bay Hawk. Overall a great experience.

Visited here for lunch while on vacation in early August ’13. Funky place with a lot of character and history. If you get a chance check out some of the plaques on the bar - such as where Jim Morrison took a leak. Has about 30 taps, most common craft from California - a few imports. Bottle selection is pretty decent - numbers well over 100 and broken out by type. Food is pretty decent - huge menu - lots of comfort food. Not a beer geek destination, but a fun place with some history.

Legendary spot and one of the first places in the country to embrace world beers and then micros. Worth a visit for sure.

Stopped here on a whim because I saw a parking spot right in front and we wanted to eat. Food was surprisingly good pub grub but the tap list was pretty lousy. At least Racer 5 was on and that was good enough. Don’t go out of the way for this place unless you are into Hollywood history as this place has been here a long time.

Pretty cool place with some interesting seats at the bar. The bartenders were fairly attentive until later in the night when it got real busy. They have a pretty good tap selection with no really hard to find stuff, and the bottle selection is pretty big, but again no really great finds. the menu is fairly large and most of is good. Multiple screens makes it an excellent place to watch any sport on TV.

This is a nice place - the sort of US diner/bar type affair that you see on TV. I had some nice chilli, but the beer list wasn’t tremendously exciting.

Food is good. Cool interior, lots of memorabilia of beer and rock music. Beer selection is okay, but nothing amazing for a place on ratebeer. Arrogant Bastard and Stone IPA on tap. Smoked Porter on the bottle. Large menu of burgers, chilli, breakfast, and bar food. Good burgers.
