Lovely Apres Ski Chalet.
This is a lovely bar. It's warmly lit and just dark enough. The jukebox is a super cool mix of everything from punk to jazz. There's couches all over the place, so you can sit down in comfort, and there's no bottle service. I recommend sticking with simple stuff like screwdrivers b/c it's not really known as a martini bar or anything, but they are made strong enough and the bartenders are friendly. There's also no velvet rope, which is cool. Next door is Casa Bianca Pizza Pie, which makes for great late-night noshing.
I don't drink but will accompany friends on an occasional visit to a bar. On Saturday night, we were looking for a casual place to grab a drink after we had dinner and arrived at the Chalet around 10:30p. Nobody's outside but the door man tells us that the place is at capacity and says there's a wait. At 10:30p??? Give me a break. This is a watering hole in Eagle Rock people... spare me the attitude.
