Love this place! They have 5 Beers on tap and an even greater selection of bottles and cans not to mention craft spirits and cocktails. Food is phenomenal and happy hour makes it even easier to go in and eat too much.

Gosh, what should I do now? It's just past 4pm, and traffic on the way home sucks. Well, going for a beer can't hurt at this time.

A very "hip" interior. It's a little dark and intimate on the inside, yet there's a sizable number of seats in the house. The bar area is not a large one, but at this time it didn't really matter.

Four different beers pouring from the taps, plus 50 optins from the can/bottle. Beers from El Segundo, Strand, Smog City, and Brouwerij West. Bottles/cans from Maui, Lost Abbey, Dogfish Head, The Bruery, Belhaven, Flying Dog. The El Segundo Hudson was on Happy Hour, so I opted for a pour of that, which was displayed in a smallish stange-like glass (maybe 13-14 ounces). A few other specials are offered for Happy Hour too, including $2 fries and Tecate.

The selection of beer available is on the respectable side. However, I see the Hudson House as more of a place for cocktails, as many craft spirits are available. If your party is a mix of beer and cocktail enthusiasts, the Hudson House would a good spot to satisfy both worlds.

Small intimate place that is features a lounge singer from time to time on Fridays. Otherwise, it's pretty mellow. Decent beer selection on draught and bottle (and can). Food is great. Burger is killer on a pretzel bun with shoestring fries. The owners are a husband and wife couple. Wife has some Father's Office connections. If I recall correctly, she helped build the Father's Office menu, hence the similarities in the burger and fries. Top notch! Husband likes to talk beer. Was hospitable to my wife and I who went in looking for some good beer. He gave us many samples even w/out our request. Gave me a whole can of Maui Brewing's IPA as a sample for no charge.

Very hip, intimate atmosphere and a mostly local crowd. You could easily drive by this place a hundred times and not really notice it, which only adds to its appeal, in my opinion. Saturday night there were some GOOD looking people in the place, myself included, if I may say.

We didn't try the house drafts, but they have a bottle selection to meet any taste. I was pleasantly surprised to find they have Lost Coast Alleycat, so we put down a few of those. The food is better than it needs to be, and reasonably priced. This place looks like a must for Happy Hour (Mon-Fri 5pm-7pm.)
