BEVERLY GROVE, LOS ANGELES –
Though The Churchill just entered the scene in late-2011, it has the distinction of being run by the same guys behind West Hollywood’s casual and very popular bar The Hudson.
Churchill is bigger than its older brother, however, and its rustic design with old-fashioned Edison light bulbs and unfinished wood flooring creates an atmosphere that is both romantic and chic, while at the same time attracting a similar crowd of hip but (mostly) unpretentious Hollywood insiders.
The weekday vibe is relaxed, with local young professionals sidling up to the bar to unwind over bacon-infused bourbons or one of the twenty craft beers as trendy ladies snack on small bites or indulge in the Hit and Run, a house specialty made with vodka and fresh cucumber.
In the cozy garden patio, couples dine on specialty pizzas next to the large fireplace, as budget-minded college kids take advantage of the long daily Happy Hour specials.
As night falls, attractive young scenesters start flooding in, ascending the metal staircase to the second bar where DJs spin Thursdays through Saturdays and a photo booth beckons all the pretty people to get a little goofy.
Once night turns into day, patrons head back to devour roasted apple donuts and silver dollar pancakes, or just hair-of-the-dog-it with bottomless mimosas on Sundays.
No matter the time, The Churchill is a fun and trendy spot that everyone from stylish young things to its curmudgeonly British namesake will enjoy…Well, maybe just the young things.
Couples on first dates, young Hollywood scenesters, aspiring actors, young professionals, and older college kids cashing in on Happy Hour, 20s to early 30s.

Son of a Gun (8370 West 3rd Street) is the second restaurant from the guys behind crazy popular (and very sceney) Animal, and serves up daily changing beach shack-style grub like grassy bar oysters and alligator schnitzel to a similar crowd.
