Party Earth St. Felix (West Hollywood) Review

The Scene

St. Felix in West Hollywood, CA is a tiny cocktail den with a diverse crowd & cool vibe. Come pregame in LA with Party Earth.

The Sunset Strip rocker set and West Hollywood’s LGBT crowd find a convergence point at St. Felix, a tiny bar and restaurant that makes an excellent pre-game spot before venturing off to rowdier prospects – or sticking around to lounge away the night.

People-watchers can sling pitchers of the popular house sangria and watch the eccentric chaos of Santa Monica flow by from the sidewalk patio, a space that usually fills up early thanks to a daily Happy Hour and LA’s persistent sunshine.

A mix of subtle kitsch and boudoir details give the narrow interior a subtly sultry vibe, with exposed brick and damask-covered walls setting off the black leather booths and low group tables. A rather bizarre collection of photos and paintings complete the décor, ranging from semi-erotic collages to Burt Reynolds butt-naked on a bearskin to a painting of Billy Dee Williams holding a Colt 45.

A small bites menu keeps guests satisfied with mac and cheese, Kobe sliders, and sweet potato fries, while the popular specialty cocktails get the most play off the drinks list, especially the watermelon martini, the house mojito, and the vodka and jalapeno-infused Firecracker.

Given the venue’s size, it doesn’t take much to get crowded, especially in the hours before local clubs and music venues get going, but anyone in need of an easy place to start the night or a cool respite from the surrounding party scene will find St. Felix quite the West Hollywood sanctuary.

Tasty Pre-Gaming Food and Drinks
Ashley L. Mar 16, 2013
Whenever my significant other and I head out for a night in WeHo or Beverly Hills, we always make it a point to stop at St. Felix. Their happy hour menu is great, and the drinks are fantastic! The ambiance is on the trendy/hipster side, which is perfectly fine with me. Located on Santa Monica Blvd, this spot is perfect for bar hopping, or just hanging out all night and people watching in WeHo. Be sure to read all of the parking signs in the area before committing to a spot. WeHo parking is tricky, and it is usually just easier to find a pay lot rather than risking a parking ticket, or getting towed. Their signature mixed drinks are delicious! I highly recommend the Stockholm Syndrome, which has gin and pomegranate juice...yum! Cocktails will run anywhere from $10-$15, which is reasonable, as the portions are sized well, and the signature drinks are unique and flavorful. If you are going on a group outing, I recommend getting a pitcher of the house made sangria. It's to die for! As for the food, I recommend the Kobe sliders. They are juicy, and pair very well with a whiskey or rum cocktail. Overall, St. Felix is a must for any trip to WeHo.
The perfect spot to start your night in WeHo

St. Felix is one of my favorite West Hollywood spots, a great place to get your night started on this side of town. I live at walking distance from it, so it’s even better since I don’t have to put up with the crazy parking restrictions in force here in WeHo – make sure you check all the signs if you’re looking for street parking and get ready to pay up to $10 if you opt for public parking as prices vary during the week and go up as the weekend approaches. The place is tiny, but I never had a problem getting a table even on a Friday night, during happy hour which here runs every day from 4 to 8pm: drinks and a selection of foods are half-price – not to be missed! If you don’t mind a little wait when it’s packed, get a table on the patio to enjoy the perfect West Hollywood people watching: St. Felix is located on one of the “gayest corners on Earth” that is the intersection between Santa Monica Blvd. and Robertson Blvd., home of The Abbey and many other popular restaurants and clubs such as Bossa Nova, Tortilla Republic, Here, The Factory/Ultra Suede. In a nutshell, you have NO chance to get bored. St. Felix has great food and awesome drinks, so awesome that you’ll want to try them all. Among my personal favorites, I recommend the Cubano tacos and the sweet potato fries, perfect to snack on while tasting a fine margarita or Belle du Jour, a delicious raspberry Bellini. The Firecracker is one of my friends’ favorites with its grapefruit vodka, fresh lime juice, and as many jalapeños as you might fancy to make it as spicy as you want. Service is great, and the crowd is mixed, friendly and lively. St. Felix is definitely recommended and should be on your to-do list here in LA.
sexy and intimate lounge before a night out
Joanne C. Sep 25, 2012
The St. Felix branch in West Hollywood (they have another, much bigger location in Hollywood) is tiny but packed with total sex appeal. The sleek, narrow venue makes it feel like a hideaway and the black walls create a sultry mood. If you're going with a larger group of friends, you may want to call ahead to reserve some booths. Otherwise, this spot gets full quick, especially with the awesome happy hour deals that happens everyday from 4-8pm. Now that's a good chunk of time. The food there is also delicious. I'd recommend getting the kobe beef sliders, mac and cheese and sweet potato fries. Getting a pitcher of sangria is also a must. This little lounge is a great place to grab a bite, have a few drinks and get the night started. It's situated in prime party real estate with plenty of West Hollywood options to choose from. Just think of it as the calm before the storm.
