Seating fills up fast at every screening, so grab a cooler, get there early and enjoy a movie in the LA air!
If a traveler is looking to have a drink in a great atmosphere in Silver Lake, nothing beats 4100 Bar. Poised at the edge of Silver Lake, 4100 Bar is the most popular watering hole in the area. It might be the dim lighting, the Buddha statue or the silk canopies, but something about the 4100 Bar makes it the perfect hang-out. It isn’t as loud or as flashy as some of the other places in Silver Lake, but it’s the best for getting together with friends and enjoying trendy tunes and cheap drinks.

Modeled after a German pub, the Red Lion Tavern is top to bottom an old world tavern. Strewn with German banners and an impressive array of German beers on tap, it’s the closest thing to a European pub stateside. It’s also known for beers strong enough to floor even seasoned drinkers, and breakfasts good enough to fix them up the next morning. Red Lion Tavern has no tricks or glitz or glamor – just good drinks, good food and a good atmosphere.
