LA Bar Scene: The Surly Goat

Like all bars and clubs in LA, one goes out and another goes in.  The space, formerly 'Seven,' as of this month is now 'The Surly Goat.'  And after multiple trips to this beer specializing bar, I think it is here to stay.  The bar has 27 great beers on tap that will rotate different selections plus 100 bottles, all for very reasonable prices.  For those intimidated by the large list- they also have a Beer 101 chalk board with a glossary of beer terms to help you make your selection. 

With its modern twist on the traditional pub, complete with stuffed animal heads, the Surly Goat has a very urban cool vibe.  The two level bar is spacious with a patio. And although there is no kitchen, a danger-dog vendor sits on the patio grilling up bacon wrapped hot dogs.

Know Before you Go: There is a parking lot next door to the bar ($6) Street parking can be difficult to find especially on weekends.
Patrons are welcome to bring in take out (Baby Blues BBQ is next door) and eat on the patio outside.

  1. This place looks good. I might have to take a trip to it. No doubt they have some great IPA varieties on tap.
