The building that now houses Eleven Bar and Nightclub had an austere beginning in 1922 as the First National Bank of Sherman. This fact is surprising in light of the swooping lasers and dance music that characterize the club today. However, the building still preserves the vintage grandeur of its roots; exposed brick and tall, arched windows surround those on the dance floor, while a more intimate scene awaits guests in the second-floor lounge, where a double-sided fireplace keeps things cozy. After its stint as a bank, the building became a sound studio, recording tracks for the likes of Cher, Prince, and Donna Summer. This piece of history was more in line with current owner Richard Grossi's vision: a club and restaurant where crowds could jam to a different genre each night. Today, the calendar at Eleven brims with renowned promoters and recurring events throughout the week. Spontaneous reenactments of favorite Broadway numbers take place on Musical Mondays, whereas Tuesday nights mean games of Mexican-style bingo, or loteria, in addition to sets by DJs and concert ticket giveaways. Rather than deliver their 25 oz. drinks as a pyramid of stacked shot glasses, bartenders here craft cocktails in "mega" glasses. They also stir-up fresh margaritas with ingredients such as cucumbers, jalapenos, and agave nectar—refreshing complements to lobster enchiladas, shortribs in house-made mole sauce, and contemporary American eats on the food menu.
From its first location in West Hollywood to its free-range food truck, Rounds Premium Burgers doles out mighty American burgers made with beef, turkey, chicken, or veggie patties along with a large selection of fries. Specialty rounds include The Slopper, a messy pile of chili, cheese, and onions. Custom burgers start with a foundation of daily-baked bread and a patty, which are then slathered with exotic sauces (from chipotle aioli to buttermilk ranch and tabasco ketchup) and layered with toppings such as crispy onion strings, breaded jalapeños, and grilled pineapple. From the burgers to the sweet-potato fries, the griddlemasters make all of their hearty, old-fashioned fare by hand.

The eatery's commitment to human health dovetails with their responsible practices toward the planet itself, using locally grown produce and compostable bowls and cups that vanish off the face of the Earth in a manner almost as sustainable as bowls made of a magician's ace of clubs
Hamburger Mary's cherry-red banquettes and chairs surround tables filled with classic American fare, including burgers with meats ranging from ground chuck to ahi tuna and ostrich.
