La Brea/Fairfax

Tar Pit

609 N. La Brea Ave.
Los Angeles, CA, 90036, United States
TEL: (323) 965-1300

Designer cocktails and Art Deco decor distinguish this sumptuous throwback to a 1930s supper club. The latest venture of Campanile chef Mark Peel, the Tar Pit is located in West Hollywood near the corner of N. La Brea and Melrose Aves. The interior has mirrored booths and a long, dramatic bar, where mixologist Audrey Saunders crafts classic cocktails with flavorful twists like American trilogy, made with rye, applejack, and orange bitters. Chef Peel’s small plates are a step up from typical bar fare (Mediterranean tapas alongside upscale comfort foods) with dishes like wild boar meatballs and steak and kidney pie.

Insider Tip:

Because this bar is a pre-prohibition-style bar, there is little in the way of top-shelf vodka.
