Melrose, Los Angeles –
While the name may evoke images of a genteel tea room and lunching ladies, The Parlor Hollywood is actually a lively neighborhood sports bar that attracts a rowdy crowd of singles and recent college grads.
An expansive open floor plan, spacious courtyard, and second bar area off the patio provide plenty of room for the fans and frat boys that pack the place during major events, while dozens of flat-screen TVs and a couple of enormous projection screens ensure that no one will ever miss a play.
The airy main room features a long bar and several prime viewing areas, including a semi-private lounge and rows of tables and couches.
Though sports are definitely the focus earlier on, the place is equally popular with the single set that descends post-game to mingle on the patio or make eyes over cocktails on the immense leather banquette.
An elegant décor of wood paneling, tufted club chairs, and comfy ottomans creates an upscale vibe, but there’s no denying that the young professionals and post-grads are more interested in cheap beer and flirty socializing than quiet conversation.
Although The Parlor isn’t packed every night, there are enough events like stand-up comedy and karaoke to bring in carefree crowds during the week, but when the weekend rolls around, the bar gets filled with young Hollywood singles who come looking for sports and a lot more.
Sports fans, recent college grads, young professionals, and ex-frat and sorority types, 20s and 30s.
Activities and events, usually starting at 9pm, include stand-up comedy on Mondays, Bingo! on Tuesdays, karaoke on Wednesdays, live acoustic talent showcase on Thursdays, and Sunday Socials with various drink specials during the NFL off-season. Dozens of flat-screen TVs and two large projection screens.
Full menu includes sandwiches and entrées. Happy Hour M–F 4:30–7pm.
Appetizers $8–$13, burgers and entrées $11–$15, breakfast $7 Sa/Su during football season. Beer $4–$6, wine $7–$13, cocktails $10–$13, mixed drinks $7+. Valet $6.
