Simmzy’s is pretty much a SoCal chain these days, but the Burbank location is great because it’s huge. Also, it’s a five-minute drive from whatever major Burbank studio you’ve been slaving away in all day. The beach-themed restaurant/bar has a weekday happy hour from 4pm-7pm, surprisingly good bar food, and a laid-back atmosphere that you can actually unwind in with every other studio worker in the Valley.
Simmzy’s is permanently closed.
