Offering breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner, Saddle Ranch’s menu of succulent steaks—such as the New York strip ($28.99) with a demi-glaze, Jack Daniel’s sauce, or herb-garlic butter—are, of course, the big draw. But its specialties extend far beyond that to include barbecue baby-back ribs ($21.99), seasoned sweet and spicy black-tiger shrimp ($18.99), and fresh Atlantic salmon garnished with fresh lemon and garlic-herb butter ($19.99). Lighter appetites, meanwhile, can tuck into sandwiches like the Jack Daniel’s sloppy joe ($10.99) or a south-of-the-border Hacienda Salad ($12.99). Top off a gut-busting repast with the deep-dish cobbler ($8.99) before riding Saddle Ranch's mechanical bull into a credits-rolling sunset.
Infusion Lounge's menu of savory appetizers fuels energetic bouts of dancing on two distinct dance floors, each featuring the sound stylings of a rotating cast of DJs. The hoisin mayo of Hawaiian rolls disguises seasoned pork from overly flirtatious taste buds in the Pan-Asian sliders ($7), and wasabi-infused spinach dip adds zing to wonton strips ($5). Meanwhile, slow-cooked short ribs marinated in a Thai dry rub ($21) combine to form a house-specialty plate that pairs well with a glass of wine. Before stepping out on the dance floor or wandering into the sunset, sip one of Infusion Lounge's nine specialty cocktails, such as the refreshing ginger lemon drop ($12) or the Veev-Acai-accented Fountain of Youth ($11).
For more than 43 years, Oil Can Harry's has teemed with disco dancers, cocktail drinkers, and socialites who arrive nightly to bask in the club’s rollicking atmosphere. Owner Bob Tomasino left behind his career as a math teacher to turn up the volume at the lively nightspot, which hosts a myriad of diversions and special events that include spirited line dances, Diana Ross impersonators, and the annual Mr. Oil Can Leatherman competition. Cocktails and bottles of domestic beer clink to the beats of show tunes and karaoke ballads in the upstairs lounge, and complimentary snacks line the bar during weekday happy hours. An all-you-can-eat Sunday brunch—complete with a glass of champagne—staves off appetites worked up while dancing at Oil Can Harry's Saturday-night disco parties or attempting to outrun the sun at dawn.
Soak up the solid surroundings before perusing the equally solid menu. Start the feastivities with three mini sirloin sliders ($8), house-cut garlic and parsley fries ($5 for small), and a fighting pint of Stone Brewing Co.'s Arrogant Bastard ($5). Those with an itching appetite can dive straight into larger bites. Equip yourself with a house sirloin burger ($11) or order of chicken and biscuits ($16).
At L'Scorpion Tequila Bar, sommeliers pour nearly 200 varieties of tequila, including a premium collection of blancos, reposados, anejos, and mezcals. The vast, expertly curated selection earned it a spot on the Huffington Post's list of LA's Best Tequila Bars.
Fittingly, the focal point of L'Tequila is the bar, where dark stone arches frame row after row of tequila bottles illuminated by the nearby wrought-iron candelabras. Brick walls envelop plush leather booths, which serve as private enclaves for sipping margaritas or spelling out social-security numbers in limes. To complement libations, L'Scorpion also serves a menu of tapas and tacos.
