Description: 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.

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.

As a British person visiting California I was taking in all the state had to offer, there was one day I wanted to watch the football, it was Scotland vs Ireland, to British nations, as they were a British pub I thought they would play it but apparently the us soccer team were more important even though there were a...

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. English mustard being available was great! The menu also features classics such as bangers and... More

First time I've ever had poor service in the states! The waitress got my wife's drink wrong and stormed off before she got chance to tell her. Then we were left for ages by which point my wife decided to just drink the drink she had been given. As soon as I had finished my meal the waitress was over... More

Other than the Pikey, this is one of the few other Hollywood pubs of note and which has more locals than tourists. The food, frankly, is mediocre (and maybe even proud of it - as they have a shrine to such abysmally famous UK foods such as Tayto chips and Heinz beans) but the beverage list is good and they...

We spent a whole evening socializing in the nice courtyard here. The server treated us great, even though we were sipping on iced tea for the first hour or so. We eventually ordered drinks and food. I very much enjoyed the fish and chips. The location is great. It took us a bit to figure out parking options. It was... More

....Well, in the interests of full disclosure, I need to say that since visiting my first pub at age 14 in Britain I’ve been in every colour and hue of bar imaginable and this is one of the more relaxing ones especially given it’s proximity to the noise and drama normally associated with Sunset Strip. Obviously, my jaded eyes were... More

Called in here on way to Hollywood Blvd for dinner from hotel. Surprise, surprise, English style pub!! Set back off street in a very quaint courtyard. Atmosphere looked and was great. Band playing and good numbers dining. The food was very good, I had shepherds pie and ale. Service by waitress was polite and swift and very friendly. Sure this... More

My wife and I took a chance on this place as we were heading into Hollywood and wanted a place to grab a bite. The fact that it was a British pub that had some good stuff on draught made it all the more appealing. We arrived on a Sunday evening/night. There were only two tables available as there was...
