Laurel Tavern is a rustic gastropub and a meat lover’s paradise. This popular Studio City bar and restaurant boasts an expansive menu filled with casual, high quality meats with a Southern twist, including chorizo sliders with pickled peppers, pork belly skewers and a variety of burgers made with grass fed beef and farmhouse cheddar. The menu does offer a few other items aside from its perfectly marinated beef, but even the thick French fries are cooked in duck fat to infuse them with a meaty flavor.
Laurel Tavern features a convenient self-service counter ordering system and a number of wooden tables with industrial metal stools scattered throughout. The bar gets extremely crowded on weekends when local camp out to enjoy handcrafted cocktails like the Ginger Smash or El Diablo, but the loud, lively atmosphere makes Laurel Tavern a fun choice for a night out.
