***THIS VENUE IS NOT CLOSED***.... it was once called Tidal Wave, noted for it's wonderful seafood menu. The name was changed by Proprietor/Chef Juan Mercado in 2005 to Hollywood Studio Bar & Grill and expanded it's space making room for comfortable seating, full bar and a stage for weekly entertainment..... i.e. Promoter Dolores Petersen's Showcase - Open Mic / Jam every Thursday evening, which has become quite popular for locals and out of town visitors with some of L.A.'s finest musicians (both instrumentalists and vocalists). \r
Thursdays, starting at 7pm, It is especially recognized for seasoned, world noted Jazz musicians Karen Hernandez (p), Tony Dumas (b) Ralph Penland (d) and vocalist Dolores Petersen hosts. Visiting international guests make this a memorable spot to be part of as an eager audience or even on occasion perform with this primo in-house trio to comp them with the music of America's Songbook. \r
The menu, continental cuisine, is not pricey, there's loads of free parking and it's close to public transportation. .... ""in it's own little corner of Hollywood in historical Gower Gulch, east of Vine on Sunset Blvd.""
