Foursquare Tips

  • Alex Straus is the man! For a quiet cocktail go early on a Wednesday or Thursday. Tuesdays (Industry Night) and Fridays and Saturdays are slammed.
  • Don't miss out on A Moveable Feast. Rye whiskey, sage and blackberries = heaven. Order it!
  • Same owners that own Kubar Hollywood, Kubar is the cool Lebanese Restaurant at 6669 Hollywood Blvd. Best Happy Hour in Hollywood
  • Excellent hand crafted cocktails and great vibe. The crowd is better on a weeknight than on the weekends.
  • Chill amongst walls of books with themed drinks like "The Sun Also Rises" or the rye/ sage/ berry/ lemon "A Moveable Feast" and discover if drunken novel writing was indeed your true calling.
  • Typical douche LA crowd most nights. Which is a shame as most of the employees are great people.
  • Girls. Bourbon. Literature.
  • Very cool atmosphere. Live music.
  • The library motif with its many books and typewriters adorning the walls is very chic.
  • The door policy is strict, but not completely restricted to the guest list. Try showing up early and looking the part, or make a table reservation request by e-mailing ernest@hemingwayslounge.com.
  • I just had a baby Mercedes
  • Bring a flashlight... it's too dark to read all these books

  • Stick to the beers! Only $5 and they have a great selection.
  • Among the drinks selections are "The Old Man And The Sea" & "The Sun Also Rises," as well, a truly grand selection of the straight stuff Papa favored. The whiskey menu is also something to be admired.
