Los Feliz / Atwater Village, Los Angeles –
Decked out like a 1950s hunting cabin, the kitschy and welcoming Bigfoot Lodge attracts an upbeat clientele of curious locals and earthy hipsters in the mood to curl up by the fake fire with a cocktail.
Log cabin walls, hunting trophies, antlers, pelts, wilderness safety signs, and a life-size forest diorama featuring Smokey the Bear create a warm and amusing atmosphere for the fun-loving slackers who crowd into the brown vinyl booths early in the week to chat and play trivia games, or gather at the long wooden bar to order cheeky specialty cocktails like the Girl Scout Cookie – a “thin mint martini made from real Girl Scouts.”
Early birds laze around by the mock fireplace in the Sasquatch National Forest den, while latecomers perch on barstools at high tables or hike back to the booths in the rear.
Once the weekends roll around, the place becomes standing room only as boozy and boisterous twenty-somethings flock in to mingle and flirt.
Between the creative drinks, the summer-camp décor, and the lively theme nights, Bigfoot Lodge is a badge-worthy choice for party animals who want to get back to nature and have a cheery, upbeat adventure.
Locals and earthy hipsters, 20s and 30s.
