Eating & Drinking

BEEN THERE! WANNA GO THERE!

There are grimy dive bars, and then there's this place. Little Joy looks like what my grandparent's dingy old basement would look like if it had been raided, vandalized and spray painted by band of punk rockers. But I think it'd actually be pretty cool to see what my grandparent's old basement would look like if a bunch of punks had trashed it and turned it into a bar. The drinks here are cheap, and the service a bit pretentious, but the people watching is top notch.

Fiddler's Green

recommendation by charlesb

This tiny Irish Pub looks like it should be tucked away in New York City or Boston, not the touristy Fisherman's Wharf of San Francisco. But it's that unexpected element that makes this place memorable. It's best to stay downstairs (even though it can get a bit cramped) and listen to the live music (usually a guy strumming cover songs on an acousit guitar). Considering it's location, I don't remember drinks being too pricey.

Cheebo

recommendation by dropboy

fresh & funky

Cheebo is a restaurant on the famous Sunset Boulevard in the very heart of Hollywood. We discovered it quite by accident and its since become a local. Its pretty good for all meals, breakfast, lunch or dinner. A very varied menu from great pizza's to fresh fish and all the ingredients are bio. Totally non-pretentious with a brilliant cool vibe through out. Home deliver is a brilliant option too as is the terrace ...

It's an odd place, but not necessarily in a bad way. I like the architectural aspect that frame the ceiling...would like to know the history of the space.Sometimes music is ok, sometimes garbage. Some times $5 cover, sometimes not. Always a bit shady.This is about as good as it gets! Good lunch food, brilliant burgers too

The Viper Room

The door people here are always gruff as hell, but it's worth it, because many of the shows are no charge or extremely low cost, and you get to see good music for cheap!Standard bar, small stage, some booths if you want to sit. Very cool spot to hit if you're having a night out.Great atmosphere and great music :))
