Party Earth Review On the outskirts of Downtown, smack dab in the middle of the Arts District, there’s a little slice of Belgium called the Little Bear gastropub. There’s not much down this stretch of the aptly-named Industrial Street, although the venue’s towering red doors would make it easy to spot even if there were. Inside, a simple ... more

You’ll certainly never run out of drinking and eating options in LA, so why not combine them at one of the many great Los Angeles gastropubs? This expansive city is practically littered with them, from divey to swanky and everything in between, so it’s highly doubtful you won’t be able to find the perfect LA gastropub to suit your tastes.
Boasting over three dozen carefully selected craft beers and a menu anchored by Andalusian tapas, The 3rd Stop is a cozy gastropub/sports bar hybrid popular with denizens of Beverly Hills and West Hollywood, while The Village Idiot over on Melrose is a modern gastropub and exorbitantly popular neighborhood haunt that also happens to be one of the biggest Premier League football bars in the city.
Beer Belly hides a world of craft brew and deliciously bad-for-you nosh behind a graffiti-covered strip mall in Koreatown, but if that sounds too gritty (or too unhealthy), Mohawk Bend in Echo Park is a trendy eatery housed in a refurbished hundred-year-old vaudeville theater that offers a small menu of sustainable cuisine and a massive selection of craft beer.
From the cool English bar/steakhouse Rosewood Tavern in Fairfax to the classic LA favorite in Santa Monica that is Father’s Office, Los Angeles gastropubs make it easy to quench both your thirst and your appetite…though less easy to watch your waistline.
