It’s not all small plates and craft cocktails in Silver Lake, as Hollywood sports bar 33 Taps is set to take over the home of former Good Microbrew and Grill.
Early last month Good got the paper-in-the-window treatment, leading many in the neighborhood to surmise the place was gone for good. But when reached by email, Good owner Ron Martinez swore that a small office fire was the reason for the slowdown, and that the place would be back in action rather quickly.
Fast forward to June 1, and there’s now some ABC paperwork in the window showing a different plan indeed. The license, under the name RW2 LLC, now points to a second outlet of 33 Taps, the Hollywood maximalist sports bar and beer spot. The original location sits in the former Dillon’s on Hollywood Boulevard proper, and features dozens of TVs and dishes like fish & chips and housemade pretzels.
Eater reached out to both Martinez and 33 Taps for comment, but so far neither has responded. But knowing that the principal players and the name will be the same, it’s not a stretch to imagine more of the same at the corner strip mall Silver Lake location of 33 Taps: sports, beer, and lots of action on the TVs.
That’s not necessarily a bad thing for the neighborhood, either, as lots of folks who love the food at nearby places like Cliff’s Edge or the recently opened Sawyer also want somewhere to drink on the (relatively) cheap while catching a game. Plus, with its removal from the riffraff of Hollywood proper, there’s a chance this iteration of 33 Taps will be a bit more subdued than the first.
