BEVERLY GROVE, LOS ANGELES –
A hassle-free, down-and-dirty pub that wears its dinginess with pride, St. Nick’s is the quintessential neighborhood dive where loyal regulars go for cheap booze and a rowdy time.
A dim and cavernous space, the venue sports a typical pub décor of stained-glass lamps, dark wood walls, and the usual collection of beer signs, autographed headshots, and framed tributes to various Catholic saints.
Most of the action takes place in the main room, though several satellite rooms and bars open up when the place gets really busy, making for prime locations for serious flirting and make-out sessions.
An alcove at the front with raised leather booths offers space for chatting over a few pitchers earlier in the evening, while the main bar area with its scuffed wooden booths becomes the focal point later on when already tipsy patrons stumble in to finish off the night.
Although the vibe can be mellow on weekdays when the after-work crowd comes in for a quick bite or to watch sports on the flat-screen TVs, weekends can get packed with a more boisterous crowd of casual twenty-somethings and birthday girls pounding down huge mixed drinks, getting cozy with new acquaintances, or breaking into spontaneous dancing if a tune from the jukebox strikes their fancy.
Upbeat and uncomplicated, St. Nick’s is a great choice for anyone who wants to trade their club duds for a t-shirt and spend a few boozy hours among friends.
Down-to-earth after-work crowd, young professionals, frat guys, local regulars, and barflies, 20s to 30s.
Jukebox offers hip-hop, pop, and rock. Board games.
Typical bar food including burgers, sandwiches, and pizza. Happy Hour daily 5–7pm.
Appetizers $4+, sandwiches $5–$8, pizza $7.50–$11.50. Beer $6+, wine $7, cocktails $8+.
Casual: jeans, t-shirts, anything goes.
Good place to chill any night after work, or Fridays and Saturdays for bigger crowds and a more energetic vibe.
D’Amore’s Pizza (8369 West Third Street) is open till 4am, making it a great place to soak up the alcohol after a night of boozing.
