Hollywood, Los Angeles –
With waitresses in schoolgirl uniforms and a half dozen TV screens on a constant sports loop, Dillon’s Irish Pub has transformed the traditional dark-wood Celtic bar into a near perfect sports-lovers hangout.
Just past the tall wooden doors, the baseball-cap-wearing set will find a wide, high-ceilinged ale hall where they can lounge on comfortable leather chairs in the main room or chill out in the dimly-lit nooks by the immense windows that offer a great view onto the busy sidewalk.
There’s no doubt that a sporty vibe rules here, as evidenced by the gaggles of fans gathered around the polished wood bar and its giant flat-screen TVs, alternately rooting for their favorite teams and flirting with the attractive wait staff.
Patrons who prefer to relax over a game of pool can head up the elegant central staircase to the loft area, where spirited conversation and friendly competition keep the atmosphere upbeat but never too rowdy.
In a neighborhood full of velvet ropes and cover charges, Dillon’s offers a no-hassle alternative for both guys and gals looking for a laid-back evening of sports or a night of getting toasted on three buck beers with a group of friends.
Energetic and affable sports lovers, mostly 20s to 30s.
iPod playlist of Top 40 hits. Flat screen TVs tuned to sports. Pool table.
Typical bar food including sandwiches, burgers, pasta, seafood, and steaks.
Appetizers $7–$15, entrées $11–$24. Beer $3, wine $4+, cocktails $5+. Valet $5.
Casual uniform of jeans, t-shirts, and baseball caps.
Fridays and Saturdays or during a televised sporting event.
Big Wangs (1562 North Cahuenga Boulevard) is another unpretentious neighborhood hangout for watching sports.
