Taking over the extremely short-lived Gardner Junction space, Electric Owl is one of the cooler spaces on Sunset - it's mostly outdoors, and it feels like a vintage train station where drinking is heavily encouraged. You'll want to use this place as a bar more than a restaurant - the cocktails are the reason to come here (their spicy mezcal is a real standout). But the sweet pea salad and white pizza are both ideal for washing down all those $6 happy hour cocktails after work.
