The Best Bars In North Hollywood

Lo Brewer

Whether you’re looking for a dive bar to kick back and unwind at or a hip spot where mixology is on the menu, North Hollywood has something for everyone. Check out The Culture Trip’s picks for the top ten bars in NoHo. Regardless of which you decide to frequent, you’re sure to have a great time.

Idle Hour

Idle Hour offers artisan brews and whisky-based drinks created by masterfully skilled mixologists. Sundays at Idle Hour are highly recommended and start off with brunch and bottomless mimosas before moving on to a live music set and ending in a barbecue. Patrons go for the Moscow Mules and Old Fashioneds, the latter of which is available on tap.

No bar

No bar is touted as a dive bar but feels a little more like a dimly lit local lounge. The highlights have to be the jukebox and pool room. The best time to visit is during happy hour, seven days a week until 10pm, with $2 Pabst Blue Ribbon, $3 well drinks, and $5 wine.

The Federal bar

The Federal bar is housed in a former bank building with a restaurant/ bar on the first floor and a nightclub on the second floor. It offers scrumptious American fare and several signature cocktails. Whether you’re going there for a dinner date, a comedy show, trivia night, or to dance the night away, make sure to try the apricot Old Fashioned; it’s to die for.

The Good Nite

If you’re looking for a casual, relaxed bar where you can show off your vocal prowess, The Good Nite is the place for you. This bar features nightly karaoke as well as daily drink specials.

Tonga Hut

What makes Tonga Hut so great is the combination of an authentic mid-century Hawaiian atmosphere and an extensive cocktail menu. This laid-back tiki bar is the perfect place to meet some of the locals who’ve been patrons at this bar during its 55-year run. Tonga Hut is also a great place to get a pineapple garnished drink. The Tonga Punch Bowl comes highly recommended.

The Brickyard Pub

The Brickyard Pub offers over 150 craft beers and a giant pool room in the rear. This urban pub is perfect for the bar fly who wants to throw back a few brews and school his buds in a game of darts.

This pub, outfitted with reclaimed wood, is known for its franks and brews. If you’re into craft beers and custom sausages, District Pub is the place to go. The Andouille sausage and whisky barrel are must-tries. District Pub even offers alligator sausage for the more adventurous patrons.

Skinny’s Lounge

Tiki No

Tiki No offers classic tiki drinks like the Mai Tai and piña colada. It offers a slightly more modern feel and has added a few signature drinks to its menu.
