"Wow, check out these new digs. After about a month of renovations, West LA's The Arsenal reopens today at 5PM. Keep in mind this restaurant and bar has been around since 1950 (wowza), so to preserve some of the venue's original aesthetic the dining room layout didn't much change (save for the new paint etc.), however the bar space was retooled and now displays gray wood-panel walls, an expanded lounge, and a large overhanging tv. As for the standard American menu, poutine makes an appearance, to addition to pizzas, burgers, and "three ways to get your mac and cheese fix."
The alcohol offerings, too, have changed, more booze behind the bar, new specialty cocktails like The Sequel (spicy ginger margarita), and an expanded beer and wine list.
As previously mentioned, to celebrate The Arsenal's reopening, today through October 28, 7-9PM, food and cocktail will be served off the venue's original 1950s menu at mid-century prices."~ EaterLA
Not that we couldn't expect it, with deals this great it was bound to be packed. Also the first come first service tables with no reservations made it a little hard to find a place to park before we could even order. So if you are thinking of hitting up this spot, make sure to come early and order quickly.
Hurry, this special is only until Thursday... but their new assistant friendly happier hours have been extended to 8PM, which means I'll absolutely be back for repeat business!
