À propos de ce logement
The Formosa Cafe is a restaurant and bar founded in 1939 and located at 7156 Santa Monica Boulevard at the intersection with North Formosa Avenue, in West Hollywood, California. The restaurant has a long history of movie star and film industry patronage due to its close proximity to studio lot across the street, which began as the United Artists lot and was later owned by Warner Bros. Generations of movie stars such as Humphrey Bogart and Clark Gable have eaten meals at The Formosa. Frank Sinatra is reputed to have spent many nights at the Formosa in the 1950s, pining over Ava Gardner. After a brief 2 year hiatus, a complete refurbishment, and a tremendous menu update The Formosa Cafe has returned to serve the Los Angeles community once again.

The Formosa used to be an iconic Old Hollywood fixture, but it was recently purchased and renovated and lost its soul. However, the food is still decent and they have a rooftop space and a good Happy Hour. And it's super close by--if you don't love it, you can escape to Jones across the street.

“It's an Italian restaurant and bar; you go in and you're kind of transported. There are no windows, it's completely dark. It feels like it's been there for several decades. There’s something so rad about being in a bar where so many memories have been made. Whenever I'm at a bar that's been around for 20+ years, I feel obligated to order a classic martini. You should also be sure to order the off-menu pizza with sliced meatballs and jalapeños.”
