LA Weekly's Description

Located in Westchester on the northern edge of LAX, Melody Bar & Grill is a venerable bar that's been open since 1952. You can actually step outside on the bar's front patio and see jumbo jets passing low overhead as they touch down on one of the airport's runways. Since the 1980s, the club has also been a sports bar, attracting members of the Lakers and Kings, who train nearby. New owners Christian Warren and Bobby Hughes have retained the old spirit of the place while also sprucing up its interior and expanding the quality of its food and drinks. The main room is centered around a long, rectangular bar, which is draped with Christmas lights and faces a cheery stone fireplace. The elegant dining room features ornate hanging lamps, wood-paneled walls, plush leather booths and large, mirror-like windows that look out on the street. Another room has a tiki theme, with two pool tables, back-lit tiki masks, and walls covered in bamboo and tropical long grasses. The aptly named bar hosts regular live-music nights. The full bar specializes in red and white wines, with a healthy selection of traditional beers, while the kitchen serves basic fare like burgers, steaks, salmon and club sandwiches. Ages 21 & over. Street parking.

    A time machine...Elvis hung out here, Frank Sinatra drank here...it's hip and dark, and every Wednesday night Guitarology erupts in the side room, a fab house band of session players with a special guest sitting in (local genius Jon Brion, bluesman Pete Anderson, rocker Butch Walker), with great unpredictable jams, and superb inexpensive food and drink...what could be better? A hidden gem.
