Nestled into an always hopping corner of the Cahuenga Corridor, Stout finds itself perfectly at home among its neighboring cluster of Hollywood bars. This all brick, square building is fully open on two sides, giving the space an outdoor vibe, even though you’re technically inside. Stepping into this cube, you’ll see tons of people crowded around small tables casually chatting over some cold drinks. At the center of the venue is a huge crescent shaped bar that supports over thirty kinds of beer on tap. It’s fitting that the bar is at the epicenter of Stout, as the mission of this pub is to bring their patrons the very best and interesting beers around. With a dizzying amount of beer to choose from, ordering borders on overwhelming, especially when the crew at Stout urges people to pair their gourmet burgers with the correct complimentary beer. Luckily, they make helpful suggestions in the menu itself, steering guests in the right direction. Pale ale or an IPA? Don’t worry; they’ve got you covered. And if you feel you’ve lost your footing, you can always play a little Russian roulette and just ask the bartender to bring you something they think you should drink. Exposed to the street, Stout is not only an excellent place to educate your self on the values of different brews, but it’s also a prime spot for people watching. Every night Cahuenga Blvd. comes alive with all sorts of characters bouncing between the various bars that line the street, and Stout provides a ringside seat to all the action. Attracting a young crowd (between 20-30 somethings) Stout is the place to go in Hollywood to indulge in a ridiculous burger and more beers than you probably need with some friends in a casual but still very cool atmosphere. Due to their awesome beer selection and delicious burgers, this place tends to get packed early in the night. If you are thinking of heading there tonight, make sure you go early to snag a seat at the bar, or be prepared to wait awhile for a table.
Review By Darianne Doobie
Stout takes their beer seriously (as they should), often engaging local patrons in debates about the merits of different micro brews. This is a great way to experience the best of what different regions have to offer in the beer department.
This place is all about the beer. So, if you want to seem like you know what you’re doing and maybe impress a few friends with your vast knowledge, pop over to Stout’s website for “an education” in the pairing of beer and grub.

When you're on the roof at the Penthouse in the Huntley, that's when you know you've really made it to the top in L.A.
Los Angeles is essentially a place without winter, and no one takes better advantage of that than the Upstairs bar at the Ace Hotel, packing in poolside loungers all year round.
