Fantastic place for beer and food lovers alike. Over 100 beers From around the world on tap or in bottle with descriptive beer menu. Our lunch group of 5 all enjoyed the various sushi/salad/desert offerings. Sat outside on a cool breezy afternoon. Inside space is huge with multiple big screens. And the service was a tag team delight - our glasses were never empty. Highly recommend.

This is a place I think about going to anytime I'm headed to Staples Center for a game, albiet packed almost 99% of the time but this is to be expected. A "Superbar" with 100+ taps, wine and spirits available, all taps beautifully displayed right in the center of the bar. Almost all styles of brewing are represented with many options to choose from.

My wife and I stopped in last night before seeing our Red Wings get pummeled by the Kings, found seating at the bar, saw a local Orange County brew on the tap list - "Bottlegger's Golden Chaos" and enjoyed every sip while watching the Laker's on one of many flat screen plasma's scattered around this place.

Ambiance is perfect for gatherings at happy hour, pregame libations, large booths for parties, & menu options for all tastes. 1 of 17 in SoCal, find one close and visit for a pint or three!

This Yard House is tucked away in LA live right by the JW Marriot. They get pretty busy on game days so I usually try to avoid them when there's something going on at the Staples Center. That being said, they've got a lot of tables both inside and out and a large beer with seating all around - this Yard House seems to be bigger than other ones I've been to.

They've got a great happy hour special and get pretty lively at night. The foods also pretty good - I like the N.Y. steak sandwich and hawaiian burger. This time around I picked up the Allagash White - it didn't disappoint.

Stopped by here on my recent Southern California trip. This Yard House is located in the LA Live complex and is right next door to the Staples Center. The night we went the Lakers were in town so it was quite busy. Parking is available in a garage and it is spendy as they do not validate.

The space is like all of the other Yard Houses. Lots of tables scattered throughout and a large bar with lots of taps in the middle. We were able to snag a spot at the bar during their happy hour. The beers are listed on their big food menu.

The beer selection is fairly good. Nothing is really rare, but there are a few nice options. I was able to try an Alesmith Nautical Nut Brown for the first time. They carry a lot of stuff from Oskar Blues; Stone; Green Flash; Firestone; Avery; and various other craft brewers. The prices didn't seem out of line for the venue.

The food was better than most chain restauarnts. They have a really good happy hour where select appetizers and sliders are half off.

The service was fine. We had two people helping us and they were always quick to pour us a new pint. Can't really say they were knowledgeable about the beer selections.

If you are in the area this is not a bad place to stop in at. The happy hour is a great deal. You can't lose with half priced sliders with a GF WC IPA

Kind of surprised this place hasn't been reviewed yet. It's at LA Live and right across the street from Staples Center. I was pretty stoked to find it, and its' 136 taps, Saturday before an event down there.

Atmosphere - Very much a sports-bar, although there were slightly fewer tv's than one might expect. I could watch up to 3 games, but most folks could probably only catch 2. Which is still plenty, but not fantastic or anything. Lots of open space and tables for dining. A good, if somewhat random crowd. Not exactly a lot of locals around. But it was crowded, but not overwhelming, on a day with several events going on.

Quality - Lots of BMC, but with 136 taps there was something for everyone. With that many taps I'd really prefer more killer stuff, but so it goes. Everything seemed clean, and well-maintained, but no way to be sure.

Service - Once I muscled to the bar the service was good. Prompt and responsive. I did see them doing some beer advocacy, moving BMC folks to a Paulener Hefe or a Hoegaarden.

Selection - Well, 136 taps is a lot. However, a lot of the taps were BMC stuff and associates. Still, I got an Alesmith Nautical Nut, Old Raspy, Green Flash IPA, and a Hennepin. There were several more winners, including some pretty good Belgians, such as Piraat which I don't see on tap that often.

Food - Grabbed a crab-cake hoagie. Very tasty if a little dry. Shoestring fries were good. It sat a little heavy, but the beers may also be to blame. I'd definitely eat there again.

In all, it was a very good experience. Watched some games, had some good beers, everyone there was having a good time. It's not a real beer-snob bar, but it's a pretty decent sports bar that does some beer advocacy on the side. Plenty of people left having enjoyed a new beer they would otherwise never have tried. I'm not going to be venturing down there, but if I'm in the area I'll happily stop by. Probably worth getting to the game a little early to grab a couple pints.
