The Writers Room Bar
Located in the alleyway/parking lot in the rear of Musso & Frank Restaurant, 6685 Hollywood Blvd.
Tel. 323-491-4148
Opening Hours: Thursday-Saturday, 9pm-2am

The Writers Room bar and lounge was at one time frequented by various well-known writers who threw them back in what was at that time the “back room” of Musso & Frank, today they are in no way affiliated with M&F. This small bar has no cover, but it could be difficult to enter if they don’t know you or do not like the cut of your jib, as it is subject to guest lists and private events.  Dress to impress and name dropping might help! The bar has been put together by Nur Khan, who owns a few similar venues in NYC, along with involvement from actors Jason Segel and Jack Huston (John’s grandson) providing assistance with PR. It also boasts an antique 1920s Parisian-style elevator turned into a curtained-off, private booth.
