Great neighborhood draught house. It's nice to have this recent addition to the Richmond! Beer selection is always rotating and always good. The owners and staff are a pleasure to chat with as well.
This is a restored old restaurant from Hollywood's golden age. This is a spot where Harlow, Gable and a hundred other famous and once famous actors, writers and directors once dined. So, if you appreciate history, or feel that warm glow knocking back a drink at the same bar that Bogart once imbibed, this is the place for you. Other than the (more authentic) Formosa Cafe, this place really is a gem of old Hollywood.
The interior is very nice and the food is considerably better than the sordid collection of fast food horror stories and cheapo-weapo Mexican dives that infest this once-nice area. Wait, that didn't sound too encouraging, did it?
The food here is pretty good and the service has an added twist: All the waitresses are stunningly gorgeous! This is a place to see and be seen, and it seems that every young wanna be Hollywood starlet or prospective Playboy Centerfold works here. Yes, they are THAT pretty!
The only draw back is the very steep prices for drinks. A relatively inexpensive lunch suddenly becomes expensive if you've washed down your meal with a couple of drinks. So, go easy on the drinks!
