It’s the height of sports-watching season in Los Angeles, with everyone from the Dodgers to USC to the Rams, Chargers, and even the Kings and Lakers ready to make moves. Naturally, it’s also peak sports bar season, which all makes for perfect timing for the brand new Greyhound Bar and Grill, opening this week in Glendale.
The Greyhound is already a well-known name in sports circles, having hosted countless Dodger game viewing parties and wing-fueled Sunday football sessions at the original location in Highland Park. This new outlet on Brand in Glendale will keep the same color tones and overall vibe of the original, complete with a seamlessly separated dining and bar area, meaning there’s room for all to enjoy. The former fine dining home of Palate Food & Wine now offers laid-back leather booths, lots of tall glass for that fall sunlight, and of course a ring of TVs to catch all the action.
Meanwhile, the Greyhound’s food offerings under chef Josh Davis offerings have been tweaked slightly for the new location. They still have those famous wings, of course, as well as staples like a burger, but are adding oysters from Blue Island and are rolling out a more robust wine program, a nod to the building’s other use as a Wine Vault storage center. Partners Matt Glassman, Ryan Julio, and Steve Williams (who are also behind cocktail bar ETA, and have spent time at Father’s Office) aren’t leaving the cocktails and 20-tap craft beer list behind, either.
The 3,300 square foot Greyhound, designed by Rachel Moore of Madison Modern Home and New Tolteca Mfg, opens on Friday. Expect hours from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Monday Through Thursday, with an extension to 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday, and an early opening at 9:30 a.m. on Sundays.
