LA Weekly's Description

The tiny purple room adjacent to the venerable El Chavo restaurant offers drink and appetizer specials (cheap tacos til midnight!) and an alternative to the sit-down food frenzy next door.

    El Chavo is my fave place to duck in & have a margarita, ‘guac’ & chips. Sitting at the bar is great, especially when there’s an acoustic guitarist performing.

    Word to the wise: Don't mention the Dolly Parton portrait behind the bar. The Airborne Toxic Event asked about it and the bartender responded: "Don't you talk sh*t about Dolly."

    In 1789 Governor Pedro Fages granted 6647 acres to Jose Vicente Feliz as a reward for his service in the early governments of Los Angeles and San Diego. This rich land became the Rancho Los Feliz.
