west hollywood: the village idiot

5 Apr

London anyone?

The Village Idiot on Melrose is fantastically reminiscent of a quaint London pub. From the shape and heft of the bar to the candle-lit tables, it screams “Pour me a pint, lad!” from every crack and crevice.

Luckily, instead of smelling “vintage”, The Village Idiot, emits lovely scents of ale-battered mussels and homemade “garlic mops” (that’s shi-shi LA speak for croutons…).

Its food is a departure from the greasier traditional pub fare and the drink list is fantastic with my personal favorite being the Racer 5 IPA, a 7% alc. beer.

Next time you’re feeling Euro-hipster, step into this time machine.
