I'm a huge fan of Luna Park, but not a huge fan of that long, bumpy ride down Wilshire to get there, so when I heard about Henry's Hat, i was pretty happy!
There are so many benefits to this place. Let's name #1, which is FREE PARKING! They have a pretty large parking lot and if it is somehow full, there is street parking not too far away. Since there's no valet stand, you can often park right in front.
The main reason I visit Henry's fairly often is because I'm signed up on their Facebook account, which means I am notified of ""secret"" 50% off nights. Say a password and the ENTIRE check is 50% off! Drinks too! It's so great!
This is a fun date place because of the low key mixed crowd and the board games. The service has always been great on my visits and the drinks are pretty inventive.
So far, they have my favorite fish n chips ever, and that's saying something. The burgers are made with high quality meat, and you can really taste the difference. Great hand-cut fries and a mac and cheese that is super creamy.
Love this place!!
It can get kinda noisy when full, so don't count on intimate discussions. But do count on a rousing good time, esp. with a group!
Pros: Close to my house, free parking, good vibe
Cons: Not enough beer choices
