Status: Opened mid-November
Finally some action opening on the ground floor of The Lofts at Hollywood and Vine in the form of Dillon's Irish Pub & Grill. Expect not exactly what you would think to expect from an Irish pub. Sure there's the obvious wooden booths, tvs, and overall dark color scheme, but here one will also find club chairs, a rug or two, and about 30 beers on tap. Not to mention the better-than-average bar food offerings that include staples like nachos, onion rings, chicken fingers, and wings, surprisingly mixed in with tuna tartare, oysters, and crab cakes. One more time, the motto: "No velvet ropes, no cover charge, no rude doorman, no attitude, and nothing over-priced," not even valet.
