LA Weekly's Description

This Glendale mainstay got its name from a giant marlin that hangs on the back wall, surrounded by nautical knickknacks, books, games and dad's-den-like furniture. There's a tiny stage for karaoke, comedy and occasional bands, and a pool table in the middle of the room that's rarely available (regulars seem to like it a lot). From 1966 to 1980, the space was called the Tiger's Den, but the Big Fish, which is a family-owned business, brought a more welcoming feel. Thirty years on, the Fish seems well-anchored, building a community of drinkers, sports fans and bona fide bar buddies. The owners print out a monthly card with an event calendar, a list of "customer birthdays" and even season-appropriate limericks written by the owner's father.

    The bartender didn't give me my change. Didn't even ask about it. For shame.

    Bloody Mary Sundays! Free pool and cheap Bloody Mary's
