That part of the city's gentrifying very fast, and in LA gentrification means your rent goes up 1000 percent.  I look forward to eating at the Tender Greens that they put there on my next trip to the museum.

To be replaced with a Mexican, Indian, or other "ethnic" cuisine joint shortly.

czei: I guess the LA public would rather pay $15 for a designer cocktail made by a mixologist than pay $4 for a glasse of Guinness served by a bartender.


Stop with this "mixologist" crap. I tended bar for years (that's what happens when you earn a philosophy degree), and while some bartenders are better than others, it's up to the owner and manager to design a "craft" cocktail menu. All that a "mixologist" does is follow a recipe. Just like every other bartender worth his or her salt.

I've worked in bars where drinks from yesteryear (pink lady, Ramos gin fizz, cobblers, sazerac, et al) were the standard. Sh*t that probably 5% of modern bartenders know the ingredients to, let alone how to properly assemble. That doesn't make me a "mixologist."

It makes me a damn good bartender.

'OK, most Angelenos probably haven't been inside Tom Bergin's in a long time.  '

I expect that's why it's closing then.

Nostalgia for nostalgia's sake is misplaced. Today's generation of drinkers don't give a shiat about Irisih heritage I guess. They're just American, which is maybe how it should be

Hey subby:

Stick your Irish coffee and shamrocks up your ass.

Had enough of the "thanks Obama" crap.
