The Glendon Bar & Kitchen


This Westwood newcomer is a touch too sophisticated—in decor at least—to qualify as a UCLA student hang. The former Moustache café space is unrecognizable, with tall ceilings, plump banquettes, and a fresh-from-the-catalog, contemporary-loft feel. The menu is more collegiate, made up of booze-absorbent foods like fried calamari, crab cakes, burgers, and pizzas and an unfortunate list of sugary martinis. The main draw is the two—count ’em, two—nightly happy hours (from 4 to 7 and 10 to midnight), which feature a supersize selection of half-priced food and drinks. » 1071 Glendon Ave., Westwood (310-208-2023 or L Mon.-Fri.; D nightly.
