Play With Your Food

Henry's Hat

3413 Cahuenga Blvd West, Los Angeles, CA 90068

This fun gastropub just across the way from Universal Studios is where to go for a killer turkey burger (served on Melrose Bakery buns) and a full-on menu of games like Risk, Scrabble, Battleship, chess, checkers and Wii.

Sweet Love Hangover

6506 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028

Whether you have a hangover or not, this kitschy hangout inside Playhouse nightclub will take away the pain with comfort foods like mac 'n' cheese, sloppy joe sliders, all-day breakfast, fried Twinkies and games, games, games! Tabletop boxing, anyone?

West 4th Jane

1432a 4th St, Santa Monica, CA 90401

Ninety-nine bottles of beer on the wall, 99 bottles of beer ... This Santa Monica brew diner offers tons of global bottled beer and loads of greasy-spoon twists (read: bacon french toast and hangover sandwiches) alongside games like Pac Man in the upstairs lounge.


6801 Hollywood Blvd Ste 411, Hollywood, CA 90028

Hollywood & Highland's media bistro takes the idea of playing with your food to the next level. Pyramid-shaped touchscreens at the center of each table are used for ordering burgers and the like, playing video games (on your own or against table mates if you wish) and even shopping for uWink merch.

Cafe Home

3377 Wilshire Blvd Ste 109, Los Angeles, CA 90010

This K-Town mainstay is a local favorite for its low-key vibe, roomy indoor/outdoor seating, assortment of tasty coffee and tea drinks and famed shaved ice bowls. Oh, and a veritable smorgasbord of board games, poker chips and cards.
