This is a great place. Family-owned, been there since the 50s. Very sophisticated, fun, gay spot. Occasional Hollywood glitterati to be seen. Best margaritas in the area, and close to my house. Also a gay/drag dinner theater down in the basement.

This place is legendary. Peter Sellers used to hang out here. You'll see creep writer types banging away on their scripts. It's a Cuban coffee place, run by mexicans. Great pastrami sandwiches, and pastries and coffee. It's also the hub of Alcoholics Anonymous in this part of Hollywood (there's a meeting room in the back.) Groovy people in the meetings (they say.)

Drinks & Nightlife

This is a classic in the area. El Cid is a spanish-tapas restaurant that also has stages and live music. Very iconic, sort of tropical patio down mysterious steps, overstuffed vinyl booths, sangria. Reggie Watts plays here regularly.

It's like walking into 1968... The deer hunter. South Pacific style tiki bar, very old school. You can smoke in the place (or could for a long time) as it's family-owned, thus has no employees. Drinks are expensive but excellent.

This place is neat. It's a weird little bar that used to be famously hardcore, rough-trade gay. is now very cute and has music, film-screenings. Great to support the local scene, and an easy walk from the cottage.

This is a legendary gay bar. But it's open to anyone and everyone. Very friendly and fun. It's like the take-off point for any respectable, properly-gay night out in Silverlake.

This is a proving ground for local bands. If you like rock and roll + country definitely check out a show schedule.

Busy, and full of industry people. But the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful, and Trader Joes has good stuff.

This is a premium grocery store. Expensive but high quality. It's the location of the original Disney animation studio, before they moved up to Burbank in the *sound* era.

Arts & Culture

There's an art walk once a month - on a Thursday night. All the galleries open up to the public. Also there is a fashion district that has an astonishing amount of fabric and notions. Great for the seamster/seamstress.
