Grandpa Johnson's

Grandpa Johnson’s, a new Art Deco-inspired cocktail lounge in Hollywood, is a vintage deco dream come true. Designed with visions of Gatsby opulence, Grandpa Johnson’s manages to balance Old Hollywood elegance with modern vibrance. Slip away as you sink into plush chairs and take in the surroundings: the zig-zagged chevron floors and ceilings, streamlined brass inlays, Orient-inspired panel paintings and mirrored walls reflect dim light throughout the space. The impressive marble-topped brass bar is curved to accommodate leaning patrons, which helps when seeking drink suggestions from the equally accommodating bartenders. 


"Grandpa Johnson’s is sleek. It purrs with elegance. It is a reflection of the new type of entertainment in Hollywood. A lounge with good drinks.  It can be called the difference between drinking in your 20s vs your 30s.”   - EATER LA
