Was wondering if you had suggestions on a great bar to go to. Something in the Sherman Oaks-Encino-Hollywood triangle would be good. I'm going with a few old friends and we would like someplace with good drinks, good appetizers/finger foods, and a relaxed atmosphere where we can chat and have fun. A dance floor and/or live music would be nice too, if the place is not too meat-market-y or filled with obnoxious drunks (a la Dublins).
I have searched high and low and have yet to find a place in the above triangle for this... Can someone help??
