LA Weekly's Description

Hemingway's Lounge in Hollywood is the sort of place the writer himself might have approved of, on certain nights. Hardcover novels run along the walls where they meet the ornate ceiling, and a host of typewriters run flush above the DJ booth. Yes, we said “DJ booth” – and no, Hemingway likely wouldn't have loved the weekend sounds that pulse from the Lounge, which is rife with banging dance hall classics and ultra-pop newcomers. Nor might he have approved of the crowd, piled in with close-cropped young men and fake-literary clubettes fawning over the thousands of stacked books in the main room. Still, Papa wouldn't have shied from a cocktail or three, especially the lip-curling Old Man and the Sea option, while fitting into one of the plush red booths on a quieter weeknight.

    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.

  • Thrillist on 06/28/11

    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.

    Looks like a library lounge on the inside. Great drinks and beautiful crowd. -Francine, The Real L Word

    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.
