Musso & Frank Grill

$$$$(323) 467-5123
Hours:FRIDAY5:00PM to 11:00PM

Among Hollywood Blvd.’s vape stores and souvenir shops selling California license plates with your name on them is an unexpected piece of actual culture: Musso & Frank. This classic American grill has been open since 1919, and not much seems to have changed since then. The waiters still wear red jackets and bow-ties, crab louie is still on the menu, and there’s a vintage phone booth in a corner that you’ll absolutely want to take a photo in. And while the food here is just not good, it’s also impossible to have a bad time. Which is mainly due to the very strong martinis, and the general sense that you’ve walked off Hollywood Blvd. and into a time machine.

The Polo Lounge

The Polo Lounge seems like one of those classic Old Hollywood spots, but the food and the scene are awful. There are better places for star sightings.
