Sometimes you just want a beer, a pizza, and a place to watch the game. Elbow Room is the place to go with an easy-access location on Cahuenga Boulevard in Hollywood. The indoor-outdoor dive bar has TVs throughout and plenty of beer options. You can sit at the front patio for people watching or the back patio for an incognito spot to catch up with friends. And in a city that lost a lot of late night dining spots over the past few years, Elbow Room still offers food until 2am daily. Yes, you read that right–late night food every single night of the week. You won’t regret walking (or stumbling) over to Elbow Room after any Hollywood bar hop.

Elbow Room Details:
You can’t go wrong with their signature 20″ pizzas. They’ve also got truffle mac & cheese, buffalo wings, flatbreads and a burger. There are even a few bites that are vegan-friendly.
At a place like this your best bet is to go for a beer. They have a variety of bottled, canned and draft options. However, if you’re in a liquor mood, you’ll find the rare $12 cocktail including basics like an Aperol Spritz and their “Elbow Mule.” Also, Frosé. On the menu of a sports bar. Amazing.
There are a lot of sights and sounds in Elbow Room, so music isn’t the main focus, but it doesn’t disappoint. The ’80s and ’90s rock and alternative hits go along well with the atmosphere.
Elbow Room has a classic, neighborhood sports bar feel with the Hollywood touch of open-air dining. The entire front wall is open to a breeze and people watching. There are no less than 8 TVs mounted on the walls playing sports, sports news, and viral videos at all times. The back patio has a cozy, fenced in area as well as extended seating into the alleyway. Staff is super friendly and welcoming no matter what hour of the night (or morning) you arrive.
📸 Photo Ops:
You won’t find photo op gimmicks here, but a pic with the “Elbow Room” logo painted across the front wall will be a great way to remember where you were last night.
😃 Happy Hour:
You can drop in for drink specials 3pm-8pm every single day. It includes a few beers, well drinks, select wines, and even an $8 beer and pizza combo.
