LOVE IT! – What more can I say? I'm so sick of going to Hollywood to worry about parking and long lines, just to have to schlep it all the way back home at the end of the night. The crowd at the Arsenal is young, professional, and always someone inetesting to meet. The food at Arsenal is amazing with the sliders and kobe burger among my favorites. The bartenders and staff are also on point. It's just a perfect no hassle place to come for a good time. I have even met some people from Hollywood there!
Great for a party! – Great vibe at the Arsenal for a group of people to have some good bar food and great cocktails. This place has a very large semi-covered patio area for the smokers. Pretty lively bar scene. Service at times can be slow depedning on the server in your section, but still a nice place to visit.
Yummy Kobe Burger – I love their Kobe burger and fries! Delicious! I love all of the different unique rooms. The Patio was recently redone and looks great!
The Best Neighborhood Bar in Los Angeles – So this New Yorker has finally found the best neighborhood bar in L.A. And the trick is that it is really three bars in one. First there is the dark and exotic weapons room. This room is steeped in history and a great dining or drinking area to just chill and escape. Second there is the main bar. This is a classic and reminds me of the great bars I love back in Manhattan. Cool atmosphere, d.j.'s on duty and a full-on pull up and wet-yer-whistle bar. A real bar bar, not some cheap style-conscious counter top with legs. Thirdly they have the outdoor patio. This is one of the best patios in town. Casual and chic and protected from the street, it feels like your own private club. The drinks are above par and gratefully there is no pushing to swindle with faux-glam cocktails. The staff is young and attractive. The food is sensational - even though everyone raves about the steak I say check out the roast chicken with mashed potatos and you'll never be homesick again. The only problem I have is that they aren't open for lunch! Seriously - my favorite new find.
at least try it once – simple: service was friendly and fast, people were friendly. food was par nothing special. drimks were pricey about 8 bucks. do not park across the street in the residential area. we did and we got a ticket. seems to be a little trap that the city imploys. other then that dj was decent and planning to go back when int he neighborhood.
Friendly service, comfy booths, stiff drinks, varied music and great appetizers – I've only been here once, but I had a good time. Luckily, my co-worker and I arrived at around 5:30 PM on a Friday, so we were able to beat the crowds and get an indoor booth seat. The cocktail waitresses are friendly and knowledgeable, and the drinks are stiff (but pricey). The "sliders" (mini-cheeseburger appetizers) were great, with a genuine char-broiled taste. The place got increasingly louder as the night progressed, and I heard some oddball 80's rock selections mixed in. I enjoyed the dim, candle-lit tables inside, but I avoided the "outdoor" (four solid walls and a roof, cracked open a few inches at the top) seating area which was packed with chain smokers. They had some sectional couch-style seating toward the front which was able to accomodate a large group, and I saw a jukebox, too. I'd probably go hear again -- not bad for a Westside bar!
I love The Arsenal – I am always happy to go to The Arsenal. It's a great spot for a casual date or to go out on the westside without blowing all of my money. The DJ's are good and the filet is awesome. The service rocks, no pressure, but always ready to get me another drink. Sometimes it gets too crowded, and it can be hard to see the hotties, but I like to smoke and eat and drink so I always leave happy. Oh, be sure to valet, I got a ticket last time I was there.
smoki'n waitresses!!!!! – I have no clue what the previous poster is talking about. The place rocks! Not only is the staff hot, there also fun and fast. Faster then can be expected considering how packed this place is. I come every so often and always have a fun time. Concerning the food, its better then 90% of the bars I?ve been too; I had their steak and I was beyond pleased with it. "What?s so great about this place?" The obviously uptight lady asked...It's simple, people like you don't want to be there, which gives me just a touch more room to dance and ogle the beautiful waitresses. The one thing she was right about was how dark it was; I would love to see who im talking too before the last call lights come on, there has been times where another drink was definitey par for the course.
Not so great – I honestly have no idea what the attraction is to this place. It's so dark you can't see the menu unless you are outside, and if you're outside, then you have to deal with the smokers. The service is always lousy, the food is terrible and the people are posers. I've been here a number of times and am always disappointed. Wouldn't recommend it to a friend...or anyone else for that matter.
Reloaded West L.A. nightclub combines modern amenities with nostalgic charm. – In Short
Don't let the cheesy neon lights fool you: This '60s-era hangout has a big city feel uncommon for the Westside. Behind the frosted windows is a low lit, contempo cool bar and restaurant. The bold red and black interior is split into three separate spaces: the main bar area, booth seating, a DJ booth and a jukebox. The comfy dining area offers a more intimate vibe--if you don't mind its sizable collection of weaponry decor.
