jackson_william_scott This was maybe the coolest bar I came across in America. It's in West Hollywood, just off of Santa Monica Boulevard, and goes by the name of Barney's Beanery. In fact it's gone by that name since Barney opened the joint around eighty years ago. Discovered later it's a chain but this is the original. We were driving around a little lost when we noticed the sign. It was quite a shock. I'd read about it before and assumed it would no longer exist. It was probably most famously patronised by one James Douglas Morrison (the Doors office was just round the corner,) but over our IPAs we discovered it was a favourite haunt of Marilyn Monroe, Steve McQueen, Janice Joplin and some others I'd only vaguely heard of and have now forgotten. Anyway, cool bar. Roadhousy, yellow and orange, Art Deco. Doesn't seem to have changed much in decades. Worth a visit if you 're in LA. We never did find Janice's signature, which adorns the ceiling somewhere...

  •   jackson_william_scott Actually, a bar to rival this one was in San Fran. It's on Jack Kerouac alley, opposite city lights books, forget it's name. Know the one? We over imbibed there daily. Wonderful establishment. 4d
