FAIRFAX, LOS ANGELES –
While Los Angeles doesn’t lack for pubs, Rosewood Tavern is a fresh combination of traditional English bar and American steakhouse – mixed with a wee bit of sports and a whole lot of whiskey.
Roughly fifty different whiskeys to be exact, along with nearly thirty tap beers and plenty of grub, all of which makes Rosewood a neighborhood favorite for after-work drinkers, casual daters, and bromantic nights full of meat and booze.
Divided by a long communal table, the venue has a factory-meets-farmhouse quality, with massive steel beams beneath a high rounded ceiling adding a touch of industry to the exposed brick and rustic wooden furnishings below.
A couple of flat-screen TVs draw older sports fans to the small corner bar to watch soccer or football, while young professionals in dire need of a drink after (or during) a long day sip a snort, pull a few pints, and chow down on everything from wussy salads to racks of lamb.
An open area with low leather couches is often taken over by hip singles looking to mingle over a few good beers, but even if they strike out with fellow patrons, the rotating selection of drafts keeps them coming back for more.
A chill spot to start the night or just spend a lazy afternoon, Rosewood Tavern is an old-timey haunt that’s always a good time.
Couples grabbing a beer, chill sports fans, singles looking to mingle, and local UK expats, mid-20s to mid-30s.
Two flat-screens usually tuned to sports.
Traditional English fare including steaks and chops.
Appetizers and sides $5–$9, salads $9–$11, lunch $6–$13, entrées $12–$25. Beer $6–$8+, wine $7–$14/glass or $26–$52/bottle, whiskey and mixed drinks $8–$15+.
Casual: t-shirts, polos, corduroys, sneakers, cute tops, fitted jeans, flats.
Anytime during the day to relax with a beverage or three and read a book, or Friday and Saturday nights for a busy but hardly rambunctious evening.
The Dime (442 North Fairfax Avenue) is a small and chic cocktail lounge that caters to a young creative crowd of erstwhile actors, but remains worlds away from pretentious.
