The Pure Luck in East Hollywood

Normal Garciaparra | Jul 3, 200705:33 PM     17

The former Korean/Chinese restaurant with humongous portions located across the street from SCOOPS has been re-opened with the same name as a pub serving beer on tap with vegan appetizers.

I peeked my head in a couple weeks ago and checked it out, they're open late, with a fluctuating closing time between 12am and 2am depending on how many people are in there. I was surprised to see them have Fat Tire Ale on tap, in addition to several other good brands (no Bud/Miller/Coors crap).

I finally checked it out this weekend during a block party event and had a Fat Tire while a friend of mine had one of the German-sounding brands. They also have Happy Valley Hefeweizen, which I wanna try. This place works GREAT as a neighborhood pub. I went to Portland a couple months ago and enjoyed the pubs there. Seems like a little bit of Portland followed me home.

I never had the food there but will check it out next time. I'm not vegan myself but hey, I'm open-minded enough to eat anything.

Earlier that day one of my neighbors who came down to the block party his cousin wanted to check out a bar and I asked him "cocktails or beer?" He said "beer" so I pointed out to The Pure Luck and later found the two cousins chatting away a good two hours later.

BTW, the sign on the top says, "UCK" It's next door to Orange 20 Bikes and as mentioned across the street from the world-famous Scoops Ice Cream shop in the hip "Hel-Mel" (Heliotrope/Melrose) corner of E-Ho.
