The Broxton is a bar and restaurant right in the center of Westwood Village. It’s sort of a sports bar, sort of a brewery, and sort of a vegan spot. It’s also an entirely cool space that’s impossible to miss, with blue-and-gold tiling in the entranceway (Go Bruins) and a fountain out front. They’ll usually have about ten beers they make in-house on tap (our favorite’s the Roger, Roger IPA), supplemented by five or six beers from other breweries. This is a great place to come for sports when you don’t feel like dealing with the craziness of the full-on UCLA bars nearby, or for a casual Sunday afternoon beer.
