Came for a huge happy hour after a conference. The bar was bright and friendly, with lots of plants and green growing things. The staff were friendly, quick, and accommodating.

They have been closed at this location according to their website and reports from my friends. One of the few English pubs around Hollywood. They say they are finding a new location.

This bar looks like no other in Hollywood. Their patio is lovely, especially during the summer for some live jazz music. Dinner wasn't bad here either. Beers are a little expensive.

Our landlady recommended this to us as it is her favourite pub/restaurant in Hollywood. We sat in the courtyard which was very pretty with fairy lights and a fountain. The burgers were great, and the chips! (fries) were the best I'd had in the US....More

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night

Built in 1929, these premises housed movie studio wardrobes, served as a commissary for these surrounding studios, and portions of the original film Casablanca were filmed here. Various businesses have always catered to the famous and notorious characters throughout Hollywood history.The Cat and Fiddle continues this tradition...Londoner Kim Gardner was an integral part of the British invasion of the 60s and 70s. He was the bassist in innovative British bands such as The Creation, The Birds and Ashton, Gardner & Dyke. In 1973, Kim’s musical career brought him to New Orleans to record an album with Jackie Lomax and George Harrison. It was here that he met his future wife and fashionista Paula Gardner. At the time, Paula had the first and only vintage clothing store in the French Quarter named The Cocky Fox.
