delicious food, really friendly staff, very comfortable settiing, cool spot, big nachos, good sports bar, good party plater
This establishment is no longer in business.. As such, I recommend you avoid it. That may seem unfair, but, really, since it doesn't exist anymore it'd be a shame for you to walk all the way down there.
Hidden hotel sports bar offers drink specials and every sporting event imaginable..
The prim and proper Biltmore Hotel is the last place one would expect to find a boisterous sports bar like Grand Avenue. Follow the signs through a winding hallway until you hear the sounds of the game. A long rectangular bar is conveniently in view of the three large projection screens and a multitude of televisions that surround the spacious dining room. Two pool tables, video games and foosball keep the competitive juices flowing at halftime. A collection of autographed sports memorabilia decorates the walls, and service is fast, friendly and efficient.
Downtown suits, sports-minded tourists and die-hard regulars flock here because of the satellite system, which broadcasts several different games simultaneously. Munch on complimentary popcorn or indulge in a chicken quesadilla or Philly cheese steak--the all-stars of the mostly pub grub menu.
Cool spot. There are no options in Downtown L.A. when it comes to a good sports bar. The Staples Center is only open before games, so when your college football alma mater or any other out of market team is playing this is the place to go. Really friendly staff and pretty good food. The only downside is that its not your typical crazy sports bar. They'll let you yell for your team, but you'll probably be the only one doing so (unless I'm there)
Low-Key, Laid-Back Sports Bar.
I went to the Grand Avenue Sports Bar last Sunday to catch the Raider game. There were lots of screens showing different NFL matchups. The Raiders were on a projection pull-down screen and on a smaller TV at the bar. The projection was a bit dim. I had to ask the waitress to close the blinds.
The atmosphere is laid-back. Lots of fellow Raider fans filled the tables as the game progressed. Fun crowd.
Parking is $5 in the nearby lot.
The Best Sports Bar in Downtown L.A.!. Just visited for my first time... it was a very comfortable settiing.. plenty of fans watching their games.... and ofcourse cheering their teams on..... the food was delicious ( I had the 3 steak tacos $10; they were oh soo good)......and a $4.50 Corona. The waitress was kind and easily reachable when I needed her...... parking is the only issue.....but you can park using the Hotel's valet, just make sure you get your ticket validated ~$6.... or you can park a couple blocks down on 8th street for $2 I believe.
The After Work Spot. Coworkers and I regularly head over the GASB to grab some drinks and food. I love the laid back attitute and resonable prices especially with places like the Standard right around the corner. TV's everywhere which is good to catch the latest scores. Would much rather have the "big nachos" when consuming much alcohol than the wings. The party plater laced with fried food is good too. Pool tables are pretty much readily available, usually not a long wait. Ask for Andy, Theresa or Tracy...they all are awesome.
