Fellow is a huge restaurant right in the middle of Westwood Village, and as such, it also has an equally huge bar. Cocktails here are surprisingly good, and definitely stronger than you’d expect from the $8 price tag. The Papa Doble tastes like a paloma made with rum, and is excellent, but the classic cocktails are usually what we go for, like the negroni or the Aviation. If you’re a student and your parents are in town for Homecoming, this is a great place to have in your back pocket once you’ve exhausted your usual spots.
