So I’ve somewhat been on a quest lately to find “cool” bars in Hollywood that serve pitchers of beer and preferably have good rock n’ roll music in their jukebox or at least playing. Hey man, it’s a lot harder than you’d think it would be… if anyone knows of any bars that fit the description above… fess up now.
I first posted here that I was pretty sure Barney’s Beanery was the only place that had that shit going on. I shoulda quit there while I was ahead but people started commenting and telling me about other places to check out so I figured I’d give some of the suggestions a whirl… like Birds (which in case you missed that verdict… it was”NO GOOD”).
Then this week, against my better judgment I went to check out St. Nick’s Irish pub on 3rd street because someone emailed me that they had pitchers and a killer jukebox. First off, there’s zero point zero pitchers at this shitbox bar, no waitresses, the tables look like Ron Jeremy just glazed em with his load and it takes longer to get a beer than it does to get through the line at the DMV. And in what world is that a good jukebox? Maybe on planet suck dude, Alanis Morissette was on there.This place needs to have a firebomb dropped on it immediately to rid world of a large and aggressive college cockroaches community that thrive there. I didn’t go to college for a reason.
I’m pretty much giving up my search for pitchers of beer and sticking with Barneys. Oh and by the way… the jukebox at Barney’s is getting better… they’ve recently added Stones – Let It Bleed, Dylan’s – Blonde On Blonde, Metallica, Radiohead, Alice Cooper and a few others…. And I talked to the new manager and he promises The Stooges, Oasis and The Black Crowes to be added very soon. Now if we could only get em to kill the karaoke nights.
Mmmmm… beer. Countdown to brewdown.
