Came here on a Sunday night, and got a parking ticket? You have to pay the meters on a Sunday? What in the name of Godless Los Angeles? Damn.

Cool place, typical British pub feel to it (don't get all authentic on me). Dark. Have the usual choices from there, but definitely plenty of stuff for the American palate, had some pale ale I had never heard of, they had Pliny available, so you can't beat the quality there, racer 5 as well I believe. Service was a little slow, but nothing horrendous.

Had the beef and potato pie, enjoyable, simplistic, no frills. Lots of hot chicks up in this place. Surrounded by them. I guess this place is really popular on Fri/Sat night. Anyways, a little something for everyone here.

I wonder why this place is on BA. The night we went there were six drafts, three Craftsmen, Guiness, maybe Stella and something unnotable. Maybe since then they've swapped out one or two beers for something more interesting. I just don't see a reason to go back to find out. I would give Lucky Devil's another try before I went back here. The Guiness was mediocre which, granted, it generally is on the left coast. But it was pretty new when we went and the taps should have been pretty damned clean. Don't believe the hype. Not much going on here.
