Bar in West Hollywood

You don't have to go all the way to Big Bear to get your fix of the great outdoors this weekend. The Sunset Strip’s Saddle Ranch chophouse has all the best parts of a camping experience without all the unnecessary bug spray. Situated in a more than ideal Los Angeles location, Saddle Ranch is a Western themed restaurant and bar, which has uncannily accomplished a just-right balance of fun and Wild Wild West charm. Before you even walk into this rustic wooden paradise, you will come across an outdoor hot chocolate station. Grab a cup while you and your crew wait for a table, or just enjoy a hot beverage and some marshmallows before you make your way to the bar for a real drink. Though the large bar is in the middle of the venue, the wooden tables and booths are all centered around the real main attraction: the mechanical bull. On any given night, tons of pleasantly rowdy patrons take their shot at attempting to keep from being bucked off this snarling robotic opponent. Groups of college boys, ladies indulging in a much-needed girls night and even some dates all cheer on each fearless contestant as they drink large colorful cocktails or dig into a hefty piece of meat. If you prefer a bit less raucous crowd, you can always make your way to Saddle Ranch’s awesome outdoor deck. Under the L.A. night sky clusters of friends gather around their blazing fire pits to roast some big marshmallows and create some s’mores. They also have gigantic cotton candy and other awesome desserts that you can spoil yourself with both indoors and out. Though certainly not the most fancy place in L.A., Saddle Ranch is always guaranteed to have one of the most satisfied crowds in the city. After all, it’s pretty hard not to have a smile on your face when you’re gulping down delicious brews while you watch someone battle a fake bull. While outside dreamily roasting your own marshmallows, Saddle Ranch proves you don’t have to leave the city to venture somewhere else.

Review By


The mechanical bull at the center of Saddle Ranch is somewhat famous in its own right. This bucking bronco has been showcased in iconic episodes of series like "Sex and The City," "Six Feet Under" and even "American Idol." It's definitely worth a ride.

Don't even think about trying to find street parking. The Saddle Ranch is smack dab in the middle of one of the most desirable streets in all of Los Angeles. Go ahead and utilize their valet service, a couple extra bucks definitely beats cruising for a spot on the Strip.
