The Morrison is a solid bar/restaurant in Atwater Village, and the kind of place you walk into once and leave as a regular. They’ve got an excellent craft beer list, good cocktails, a happy hour from 3pm - 7pm everyday, and a burger you’re definitely going to want to get involved with. Bonus - if you’re dining with your dog friend, they’ve got a great front patio and an entire “doggy menu” as well.
