Time-tested Irish pub in kitschy environs with thousands of signed paper shamrocks on the ceiling.- Google
"3-stars) Guiness Float: Sorta gross since the ice cream tasted bitter and old."
"The traditional Irish fare is on point as well, just enough to keep you going."

Sunday Night Bar Review Valet parking is limited and stacked within the lot. Street parking's available, but watch for the streets that requires residential permits. No Happy Hour, hopefully that will change in the near future. Big Island bar area with 3 small booths (fits a party of 4) at the end. Reservation seems difficult to honor where we made a 6pm reservation where the party didn't get situated till 8pm. There's fault on both sides, but a two hour difference seems a bit extreme. Luckily, Tom Bergin's cares about their customer service and provided some appetizers for us during our wait. There are plenty of variety of whiskey here that average out about $8 for a glass of neat. The cocktail average out about $10-12. The most famous drink here is their Irish Coffee; didn't get it since I'm not a big coffee drinker. What I did try was their Cooper Union, QUALITY and worth the $12. The drink includes: Red Breast, St Germaine, Orange Blossom, Islay Scotch. It's easy to sip even for a non-whiskey drinkers. Fish and Chips: 4 star - 3 piece of crispy fried fish on top of a basket of thick fries. The fish tasted fresh and the fries were crisp...flavor and texture was in this order making it one of the best fish and chips I had in Los Angeles. Shepard's Pie/Mushroom Pie: I ordered both pies, which was quite similar. One was with chunks of beef and the other one was with mushroom. The dish was more soupy than expected and quite small. Imagine a soup with either beef or soup and topped off with a thick layer of mashed potatoes. (3-stars) Guiness Float: Sorta gross since the ice cream tasted bitter and old. The dessert drink came in a small taster glass. It wasn't expensive ($5). (1 star) Coconut Cream Pie: Out of the ball park good and I don't even like coconut (5-star). The cream and the crunchy flakes of coconut was a great balance along with the tasty crust. Enough to share, get it! Bread Pudding: Tasted overcooked...the pudding was dry and lacked creaminess. Wasn't impressed (2-stars) Vibe: Crowd is from late 20s to 50s, a good mix. Very Casual and what you imagine what an Irish bar would be like; background music and 3 bartenders on a Sunday night. Overall, food had some hits and misses--service (3 1/2 stars). Till next time I crave for some Fish N' Chips!

Maybe it's the shamrocks. The old sign reminding you it's a "Thoroughbred Club." Or possibly the horseshoe bar in the middle of the common room. But Tom Bergin's is a Los Angeles classic, through and through. It's fame comes from the various worlds that comprise the city. On one hand it's an old Hollywood hangout, a safehouse far removed from Sunset Blvd where the famous can have a casual drunk. It's a bastion of East Coast / Irish drinking culture, recalling the public houses and their communal feeling. It competes with the Buena Vista in San Francisco for introducing the Irish coffee to the USA, a claim controversial enough to keep the taste test alive. The pour of Guiness here is phenomenal, the selection of Irish whiskey perfect, and the bar bites are essential to keeping a table. The traditional Irish fare is on point as well, just enough to keep you going. Order with confidence. The horseshoe bar is fantastic. It keeps people bumping into, rubbing shoulders, stepping on the toes of people around them. Some say it's the inspiration for Cheers. I say it's the reason we go to drink - to find community, to meet like minded people, to buy a drink for someone I just met. One of the best, safest, and greatest places in the city.

Wow, Alec. It's difficult to find words to thank you for such an amazing review! After 70 years in LA, it means so much to still be thought of as the Irish public house people come to in order to find community. I'm so happy you're a fan of our place and I hope we can only improve your experiences with us for many years to come. We'll see you soon for a pour of that Guiness! -Jordan - Manager

Although their Guinness can be erratic, the remaining exotic, eclectic cocktails, liquors, beers and wines more than make up for this. Everything I've eaten on their menu has been close to superb. Their Irish version of a BLT is tasty, satisfying and inexpensive. Their beef and fish are wonderful. They make great salads and excellent breads, but their desserts will blow you away. They are within walking distance of the La Brea Tar Pits, LACMA, the Peterson Auto musuem and all that the Miracle Mile has to offer.

It's always hard to isolate the restaurant from the company, but here. We. Go. I dropped by for a little Friday fun and it was an absolute blast. Bartenders are attentive, accommodating and really funny. I recommend posting up in a booth with a handful of conversationalists and let fun drive you through the night. I also never thought I'd say this but the pickle juice is some sweet sweet nectar.

If you are in L.A. this is a great place to stop. An old time favorite for actors and actresses. A great piece of L.A. history.
