Hollywood is a place filled with restaurants and bars that have stood the test of time, holding on to their coveted locations flanking famous streets like Hollywood Boulevard for decades. It is always a risk for a new place to open up and try to compete with these landmarks. For 3 Dog Cantina, the risk has certainly paid off. Though they have not been around too long, they’re already becoming a mainstay in the Hollywood scene. Their always-open over-sized windows looking out on Cahuenga make this spot and ideal place for those that love to relax after work with an ice cold beer and some classic people watching. Though they are technically a restaurant, 3 Dog makes a concerted effort to feel like a local hang out, perfect for knocking back a few brews with some friends. One of the perks to this restaurant layout is that it can accommodate large groups of people. With huge round tables that face the busy street 3 Dog sits on, it is easy to drink and chat over some delicious nachos or tacos without worrying about not being able to hear or to get a good seat by the bar. What’s even better is that 3 Dog has a longer than usual Happy Hour (from 3-7pm, Monday to Friday) for those non nine to five types that make up most of the population of people living in the uniquely cool Hollywood neighborhood.

3 Dog Cantina actually doubles as a budding music venue in its spare time. Occasionally they will bring in different acts to play for their (generally crowded) spot. They even do an open mic night portion where anyone with guts and a voice and come up and
3 Dog Cantina just had its inaugural Cinco de Mayo celebration in 2013. It was such a success that they have decided to do one every year from now on. If you are in the Hollywood area, this is definitely the place to be next year. Make your plans now!
