Gasser Lounge's tap masters sling craft brews and signature cocktails within a sleek, low-lit hangout that emanates rock-'n'-roll vibes with tables made from tires, red-leather booths, and shrines to Johnny Cash. A Harley V-twin-engine beer tap combines the spirit of the open road with the joviality of sipping on a lively libation more effectively than a stationary-bike-powered wine press, pouring Gasser's house draft, Bitchin' Brew ($3) as well as microbrew favorites including Lagunitas IPA and Mama's Little Yella Pils ($5).
Studio Restaurant and Lounge is equal parts food and festivity.

Studio Restaurant and Lounge also entertains its guests with football nights and speed-knitting tournaments.

Evening imbibers can mash molars on the buttermilk-battered chicken tenders with ranch dressing ($9.95) or the R.A.T. salad, a fresh federation of red onion, avocado, chopped tomatoes, garlic, lettuce, and white balsamic dressing ($8.95). Deploy the fire-fighting foam of a Purple Haze beer ($7.50/12 oz. bottle) to extinguish bicuspid blazes fostered by the spicy-cheese topped Bull Dog, a frankfurter bestrewn with mashed tater tots ($5.25).
Inside the Torrance Marriott, chefs toss together farm-fresh ingredients to create flatbreads, sandwiches, and well-balanced entrees that complement a wine list of more than 40 different vintages.

At Kah Asian Restaurant & Lounge, Chef Vit Suttichanond blends Thai, Japanese, and Chinese flavors into pan-regional cuisine that Easy Reader News has praised for its presentation and its approachable flavor combinations. Familiar Thai curries and noodle dishes fill most of the menu, although wok-fried orders of kung pao chicken and meaty fried rice lend distinctly Chinese touches as well. The sushi chefs also breathe new life into sushi-bar staples with inventive aesthetic details, such as the crimson slivers that explode from the center of the dynamite roll.
