We went to The Arsenal Bar for dinner and we were not disappointed. The restaurant was very clean, and open. We chose not to sit in the outside seating area, and instead sat inside.

The service was good and the food was better. Tasty

They have Mac & Cheese Fries... Really? And Mac & Cheese Pizza. That's what my friends and I thought when we saw it. What crazy evil foodie genius thought of this? The fries are crisscut fries, topped with amazing creamy mac and cheese

fun bar on pico to chill with friends. The Dj was great on the day I went. They played a mix of the hits and old time favorites for us all to dance the night away to.
Their happy hour is great and sometimes extends till 8pm.

There's nothing inherently wrong with the Arsenal, a classic Westside hang that serves up strong cocktails like the Grasshopper with chocolate vodka and creme de menthe and Pompomtini with pomegranate vodka and pom juice. Drinks are good.

Pros: Decent drinks, seating

The Arsenal is a cute neighborhood bar. This place has good cocktails and yummy food. I've had the cobb salad and the grilled cheese. If you want to unwind and have a snack this is a good local place to do so.

Arsenal has one of the best crowds of regulars. The people are all really chill and laid back and cool to talk to. The bar is themed around well arsenal, but instead of seeming gory and violent, it seems classy and cool. I love it here!

So this New Yorker has finally found the best neighborhood bar in L.A. And the trick is that it is really three bars in one. First there is the dark and exotic weapons room. This room is steeped in history and a great dining or drinking

I rate this place very good because of the fond memories I've had here. The overall atmosphere is funny (due to the loads of arsenal on the wall) and scary at the same time. A sports like bar with pool table and dart games on one side. A dark restaurant and steak joint on the other. An interesting place nonetheless.

I came here with my cousin, and she warned me that this place was a truley unique experience. She wasn't lying. Very interesting and very fun. The regulars look tough but are very friendly and hospitable. The place is literally surrounded with arsenal and it's dark and musky inside. They also have a second room where you can eat dinner over in a dimly lit room filled with all the best killing devices. A strange encounter to say the least.

This is a classic joint of the days before peace and love. I went here on a first date with my husband. We shared a good hearty meal (steaks and burgers) and a little wine. The decor as you probably imagined, is arsenal of all sorts. The waiters areevery bit as rough as the weapons but with all the style and charm of an English schoolboy. A must visit for a nice change and a cheap drink.

In Short
Don't let the cheesy neon lights fool you: This '60s-era hangout has a big city feel uncommon for the Westside. Behind the frosted windows is a low lit, contempo cool bar and restaurant. The bold red and black interior…
