One of my favorite places to go within the LA area when it comes to good beer and good food in an energetic atmosphere is Library Alehouse on Main Street, Santa Monica. We discovered this small yet stylish restaurant and pub about a year ago, and we have witnessed the crowds grow in numbers, flocking to the unique beers, quality food, and laid back (but active) environment. The Library boasts 29 beers on draft, along with a wine list and a menu ripe with California-style pub food.
We were happy to stop in on Friday night before hitting the bowling lanes nearby, ordering a pitcher of North Coast’s PranQster golden ale for the table. I got an order of the buffalo wings – the best in town in my opinion. They serve them drums-only with ample amounts of celery and carrot sticks with a chunky bleu cheese dressing – delicious! Fletch ordered the alehouse burger (medium rare), with sauteed onions and cheddar cheese. You have multiple choices for building your burger (i.e. cheeses or meats), so you can be sure to quench your burger craving. Dana got the Cajun chicken sandwich, which she also claimed was very good. Honestly, I’ve never had anything here I didn’t like, but it’s tough to break away from either the wings or the burgers which are absolutely mouthwatering.
Go here to check out their website and get yourself excited to experience Library’s glory for yourself.
