Irish pub in Los Angeles

Opened in 1937 by a local lawyer, Tom Bergin's is the oldest Irish pub in Los Angeles. A Mid-City institution for over seventy years, this classic bar and tavern is known for is casual and convivial atmosphere, the perfect place to watch an afternoon ballgame, sample a fine selection of Irish whiskeys, or spend the day drinking pints of Guinness with friends. Recently renovated, Tom Bergin's (officially Tom Bergin's Old Horseshoe and Thoroughbred Club) now features a new copper top on its famous horseshoe-shaped bar, along with a revamped menu of Irish cuisine that is drawing rave reviews for its homemade pretzels, Guinness ice cream floats and traditional fish and chips. The crowd at this Irish pub represents a cross section of LA: young and old, gay and straight, rich and poor – everyone winds up at Tom Bergin's sooner or later. This LA icon also features nice new TVs for watching the game, valet parking and one of the best Irish coffees in the city – and maybe the world. A low-key drinking destination with an excellent selection of Irish whiskeys, a chilled-out crowd and professional staff, Tom Bergin's provides a classic pub atmosphere with innovative cuisine and an Irish soul.

Review By


It is said that the horseshoe-shaped bar, the bartenders and crowd at Tom Bergin's inspired the hit TV show Cheers.

The ceiling at Tom Bergin's is decorated by cardboard shamrocks that memorialize famous customers – can you see the shamrocks for Ronald Reagan, Cary Grant or Keifer Sutherland?
