Redwood Bar & Grill ~ Downtown

2:06 AM PDT on September 7, 2006


316 W. 2nd St. ~ Downtown Los Angeles, CA 90012 ~ 213-680-2600 (TACO Map)

Downtown's legendary Redwood Room has been ransacked by a bunch of pirates who swill microbrews instead of grog and munch on plates desgined by a Cobras and Matadors chef until 4 in the morning. TACO stowed away onboard for a secret debut of the gorgeously refurbished space during co-owner Dev's recent birthday bash, which saw the old warhorse of a bar rocking with Djs and a performance by Phunky Munkey Spankers, under Jolly Rogers and a strong gun powder hold vibe.


The buccaneer-themed bar is ergonomic, as well as great, tasteful fun. There are several rooms and plenty of places to rest drinks and chill out. Officially opening in the middle of September before International-Talk-Like-A-Pirate Day, we think the Redwood is going to be the coming year's most popular downtown spot to kick it or get rowdy with a small crew, without crushes of scenesters. Catch us here capping off our night after Charlie O's.
