This Hollywood bar’s bread and butter is their gigantic, open-aired back patio that makes the seemingly hundreds of people they let in here far more manageable. Located next to absolutely nothing on Santa Monica Blvd., Black’s isolated nature works in its favor. It’s relatively easy to spend an entire night here and not realize it.
