Hennessey's is a nice little Irish Pub right on the beach. We stopped in for drinks one night after dinner at a nearby restaurant. He had a few rounds of beers that ran us about $6 each. The beer selection included your standard Irish beers plus some local brews on tap. During our visit on a Friday night, the place was pretty empty until the live band started up around 9pm.
Besides drinks and nightlife, Hennessey's offers a variety of traditional Irish and British pub foods such as corn beef and cabbage. They also have a variety of more traditional American foods like burgers and steaks.
Hennessey's has 11 locations in California and Nevada, with the original spot right here in Hermosa Beach. It opened in 1976 and has expanded throughout Southern California, with the first out of state location just opening in Nevada in 2007.
Whenever we undertake a journey to a particular country we always want to know all about the surroundings, it’s history, it’s culture, which cities to visit, which hikes to undertake, et cetera. In advance to the journey we browse over the internet to get certain information and read travel books just to make sure we won’t miss out on anything.
Once we’re travelling we like to talk to the local people about their own country, their own region and those conversations will retrieve lots of extra information about some beautiful spots to visit, the ultimate restaurant or sometimes a particular area to avoid.
Ever since we had our own personal travel site an this one at Virtual Tourist we like not only to undertake the journey, but also write about it for everyone to enjoy. Just to make sure we won’t forget the details of our journey we write is all down in a diary. We have given the dairy the name “Diary of a madman” and it contains all the information we have gathered. We like to make the diary more beautiful to glue in some pictures out of folders and also the entrance tickets to museums, National Parks, bus tickets, et cetera.
Just after a day of travelling we're reporting about that particular day. We try our best to keep it up-to-date, don't want to have to catch up a day later. Sometimes we want to go to bed whenever we're tired, but we have discipline to keep doing it that day/night!
Here is a nice place to have a brew. It is has a german atmospere. Nice people and all kinds of beer. Happy hour from 3pm to 6 pm. Hope you have a great time. Great food and a two level bar with a beer garden. Nice for a quiet time with someone special or out having fun.
I will get a picture soon.
Dress Code: clothes.
If you've ever been to Universal Studios you might have noticed the huge Saddle Ranch restaurant located to the left of the ticket booths. Well, by day it's your normal run-of-the-mill tourist restaurant, but on Friday and Saturday nights it turns into a huge bar.
Admission is free which is unusual because most bars/clubs in the Los Angeles area charge a cover fee which is typically $10.
The guy to girl ration in my estimation was 6:4 with several hot blondes and brunettes running around. I saw more than a couple with nice boob jobs-I love them boobs! On the Friday night I went there seemed to be about a thousand partiers.
The club has several bars so you don't have to wait long to get served, a nice dance floor and two mechanical bulls you can sign up to ride if you're feeling adventurous. You might as well try it so you can tell your friends and family back home that you've done it. It's free anyway.
Dress Code: The dress code is pretty lax. I saw guys in there with jeans on and other people were coming in without a collared shirt, so it's pretty casual compared to some nightclubs.
This log cabin-esque bar resembles a hunting/ski lodge with a beamed ceiling, stuffed animals (an owl, for instance), photos framed with branches, a stone fireplace, a prominent Smokey the Bear near the door, a bar which is seemingly comprised of tree branches and bark, a men's room labeled "Bucks," and a ladies' room appropriately labeled "Does." Kick back in one of the booths, check out the crowd in the dim red light, and groove to the 80's alternative/punk songs being spun by the DJ. A very cool crowd...
Dress Code: Whatever you desire -- jeans, sneakers, dresses, skirts, down jackets, sweaters, anything goes.
The corner on 21st Street and Lewis
All tha homeyz be kickin it there with their 40s an weed, blazin it up dogg!
Dress Code: Wear baggy trousers, so you can hide your piece from the 5-0. Wear plenty gold an ice so u can get a ***, 4 real!
Barney's Beanery was a lot of fun. It's where Janis Joplin had her last meal the night she died. It's also a great place to test your vocal abilities as it's a karaoke hot spot. And compared to any other karaoke I've experienced, most of the people that get on the stage at Barney's can actually sing. It's a very casual place, great for just hanging out with friends and having a few drinks.
Hop through a couple of the clubs (most are free to get in), you will walk up on a movie star or one of your favorite musician / singers.
