Hollywood, Los Angeles –
An escape from the velvet-roped Hollywood scene, St. Felix is a classy lounge where the food and drinks are refined but the Happy Hour is generous and the vibe is wholly unpretentious.
Exposed ductwork lends an industrial air to the loft-like space, while ornate chandeliers and gothic couches add a distinctly Victorian flavor, counterbalanced by smoky mirrors and studded maroon leather stools.
Office types pile in for a lunch of maple chili salmon or pan-seared tofu, taking over the semi-private seating areas or gathering around the high-tops and communal table by the bar.
Hard-pressed to find another Happy Hour that goes until 8pm, groups of friends straight off work devour $5 beef sliders with sweet potato fries, washing them down with half-priced cocktails like Grandma Dolores’s sangria or the grapefruit- and jalapeño-powered Firecracker martini.
Dining tables line the perimeter and continue into the back room, where a second bar keeps the drinks flowing as the venue fills up later on. As retro pop blares over the crowd, dolled-up gals stop in for a bite before hitting a nearby club, while leather-clad musicians and styling hipsters lock in for a chill night of cocktail-fueled conversation.
A perfect hybrid of trendy rocker bar and down-to-earth neighborhood hangout, St. Felix makes it easy to be cool without even trying – a downright rarity in this part of town.
Musicians, indie artists, casual young professionals, dressed-up hipsters, groups of girls out for fun cocktails, pre-clubbers, and regulars of the venue’s sister location in West Hollywood looking for a change of scenery, mid-20s to early 30s.
A flat-screen above the bar showcases a montage of the best clips from various 70s and 80s cult films. Playlist of retro pop and rock music. Free Wi-Fi.
Diverse menu of mostly small plates including beef short ribs with goat cheese mashed potatoes, pan-seared maple chili salmon, spicy ahi tuna salad, and Moroccan chicken cups.
