First to Review

Opened by Jay Fiondella on the Fourth of July weekend in 1959, this place is a historic landmark in the LA area. Over the years, celebrities from Richard Burton and Peter Sellers to Rat Packers Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr, and Dean Martin would frequent this little hole in the wall. Rumor even has it that Lee Marvin once barreled in on his motorcycle and downed shots at the bar.

Jay passed away in 2008, leaving the bar to his business partner Mike Anderson, who now owns and operates the place. Chez Jay remains one of the truly iconic establishments in LA.

Gran descubrimiento de un local mítico en la zona que lleva abierto un montón de años.
Pensábamos ir solo al bar a tomar una cerveza y conocer el sitio pero nos gustó tanto el ambiente que decidimos quedarnos a cenar, ¡y que bien cenamos!
Pedimos unas hamburguesas que estaban riquísimas y a un precio genial.
El local es pequeño pero acogedor. Me encantó.
