On Saturday, August 5, if you see folks walking around with more mustaches and beards than usual and more unusual mustaches and beards than usual, you’re still in NoHo.
We all know the dreaded question this time of year: “So what are you doing for New Year’s Eve?” There’s always that pressure to have fun on the last night of the year. But this New Year's, you actually can in North Hollywood. The Federal Bar and Bow & Truss are whipping up some delish dishes, yummy libations, a night of dancing and a chill atmosphere, right here in NoHo. Take a look at what our pals are putting together for us this New Year’s.
The Federal Bar North Hollywood (5303 Lankershim Blvd. NoHo) will host a stellar evening of dinner and dancing. If you’ve never been to this NoHo staple, you need to go for this special evening. You’ll find the atmosphere very NoHo – easy going, eclectic and just plain fun. Looking at their dinner menu, we’re dying over the Manchego fondue.
General manager Steve Simon says, “We’re hosting an exciting night of dancing, DJ and cocktails. For $75, guests will get a special four-course dinner, tax and tip included, entrance to the club ($25 value), beer or wine ($8-10 value) and champagne at midnight. It’s a great way to ring in the New Year.”
There are two ticket packages available.
“Dinner & Drinks” is $75 per person and includes a four-course, prix fixe menu, beverage, entrance to the upstairs club, champagne toast at midnight and party favors.
“Drinks & Dancing” is $100 per person and includes entrance to the upstairs club, an open premium bar in the VIP area, hor d’oeuvres from 9:30pm-11:30pm, champagne toast at midnight, free parking and party favors.
