There are sports bars and then there are sports bars. New to the Culver City and Palms area is The Garage, from South owners Jamie Lyko, Adam Conners and Jim Conners (Sonny McClean's, Santa Monica). In what used to be an automotive garage come two related concepts.
The first, The Garage, is aiming to attract guests who are looking for an upscale sports bar experience. In front of The Garage is The Motor Club, a dining area for those looking to escape the crazy sports fans in the back. A beer garden is available for patio dining. With a full liquor license serving the whole space, ownership hopes serious diners will be interested in lingering over cocktails at The Motor Club while sports fans gather over pints of craft beer in back. As for food, Lyko says they're serving "enlightened pub fare," including lobster roll sliders, tuna tartar and a signature burger with a few secret ingredients. The Garage and The Motor Club opened this past Saturday, but closed for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. The pub is again open today, and every day, from 5 p.m to 2 a.m.
