A Simple Bar review image

A Simple Bar

A Simple Bar is the kind of bar you walk into and immediately wish you had it in your neighborhood. Located on Cahuenga Blvd. in Universal City right where it essentially serves as a service road to the 101, A Simple Bar is great for Valley and Hollywood residents in need of a low-key midweek cocktail - or when the 101 is a parking lot and you just need a break. This place has friendly bartenders, a massive floor-to-ceiling TV, and live music some nights.
