Jay’s Bar at Sunset Junction in Silver Lake is the kind of dark, divey bar where Oscar-nominated comedians can hang out for beers and no one will notice they’re there. There’s a decent menu of bar food, some solid drinks, and a much more low-key atmosphere than many of the other bars in this part of the neighborhood. It’s an especially good place to be on Sundays, when they have all kinds of deals on food and drinks to go along with whatever football game is playing.

Village Tavern’s not fine dining but if you pick your dish right, you can still have a good time. And even if you pick your food wrong, this place is just too damn likeable for you to get <i>too</i> upset.
