The Online Community for Culver City – The New Scene
The Serious Eats blog has named Culver City's Tattle Tale Room as one of the best 8 dive bars in Los Angeles. Also, remember that this is the bar that appeared in Quentin Tarantino's 1997 film Jackie Brown (see it HERE). Pretty good, considering that LA Weekly didn't even see fit to put it in the Top Ten bars in Culver City this February.
Here's what the web site had to say about the Tattle Tale Room:
There's perpetually someone doing karaoke in the middle of Roger's Exciting Tattle Tale Room. No stage, no lights, just a slowly scrolling Panavision tube TV that apparently only offers hits from the 80s. A pair of pool tables in the back come stamped with faded Jagermeister logos, and the deep booths that run opposite the bar are in desperate need of a re-stitching. Still, there's something darkly charming about this Culver City strip mall haunt, especially when you sit at the long bar. The cheap martinis are bottom-shelf but stiff, the Coors Light comes in 32 ounce bottles, and if the bartender likes you she might flip you a wooden token, good for a free drink on your next visit. Bonus points if you start drinking early enough to get a shawarma sandwich from the King's Kabob takeout window around the corner.
The other bars around the city included in the list included: Up Th' Hill in La Crescenta, HMS Bounty in Koreatown, Brennan's Pub in Marina del Rey, The Bull Pen in Redondo Beach, Hop Louie in Chinatown, Smog Cutter in Silver Lake, and the Kibitz Room on Fairfax.
