For British expats longing for a pint of Boddingtons and some fish and chips, the Cat and Fiddle, a Hollywood pub-restaurant set back from the Sunset Boulevard bustle, is something of a home away from home. But non-Limeys are just as likely to fall in love with the place, thanks to its pretty outdoor drinking garden and its rock 'n' roll-steeped history. The building dates back to 1929, when it housed studio wardrobes and was used in the filming of "Casablanca." The late Kim Gardner, bass player for several British Invasion rock bands, operated the bar until his death in 2001, attracting a rough-and-tumble group of rockers and music industry types who still frequent the place. His daughter, Eva Gardner, is carrying on the family tradition, hanging at the bar when she is not touring the world playing bass. The bar hosts regular Thursday DJ nights and a jazz band on Sundays. The artsy staff at the historic space will serve you homemade sausage, salads and house specials such as shepherds pie, steak and kidney pie, and lamb chops.

We love our pub food, and whenever we feel like a good feed and good beers, we tend to hang at the Cat and Fiddle on Sunset...but most nights we cook up a feast at our Juke Kartel headquarters...even though we're a rock band, we can cook the f#$% out of casserole!!!
Inside is all British pub (darts, pints and sports on the telly) but the outside is all LA - where folks take advantage of our city's fair weather by sitting on every available surface (if you can't find a seat at a table, set your butt down on the ledge of the fountain) to enjoy the chill atmosphere and live jazz on Sunday nights.
