Happy Ending Bar
7038 W. Sunset Blvd
Hollywood, CA 90028
Top 40, Pop, 80's and Rock
The Happy Ending, the highly anticipated restaurant and bar from Restaurateurs’; Mario Guddemi and Salvatore Aurora sets it’s sights on bringing an upscale New York dive bar and an innovative version of classic “bar food” to Hollywood. Located at 7038 West Sunset Boulevard, The Happy Ending is an addition to a redefined Sunset Strip that prizes fun and comfort over exclusivity and pretension. Having spent time in the Los Angeles Nightclub scene, Mario Guddemi and Salvatore Aurora saw the need for a place where people could gather, relax, and feel at home, away from the velvet rope, guest-list only scene that accompanies so many of Hollywood’s great establishments. And so The Happy Ending was conceived to provide an inviting hot spot for locals to frequent, establishing a sense of community in the neighborhood.
Eats & Drinks
The Happy Ending’s gourmet take on “global comfort food” perfectly places it between a dive bar and a supper-club. The concept is simple and straightforward – comfort food with a New York edge. Maine Lobster Soy Paper Summer Rolls, Jack Daniels BBQ Chicken Quesadillas to Filet Mignon “Sliders” on freshly baked pretzel rolls with Chipolte Cream and Wasabi Fries- Just a sampling of the innovative flavor combinations that keeps the Happy Ending customers coming back for more. In addition to the reinvented classics, the menu boasts New York Specialties; sandwiches such as the Brooklyn Bridge and The Staten Island Ferry, and pizza that is an age old recipe from the Alfredo’s restaurants- Zagat rated as one of the Best Sicilian Style pizza pie in the country. In the mood for a Sweet Happy Ending? What do you get when you mix a Crackling Fire, Hershey’s Chocolate, Billowy Marshmallows and a pinch of nostalgia? The Happy Ending Smore’s Platter! See, there’s plenty of reasons for patrons to come for the drinks and the atmosphere, and stay for the rib-sticking pub grub with a sense of humor and arch sense of style.
The Happy Ending’s interior screams Classic East Coast, from the spacious leather booths, exposed brick walls, and the subway signs adorning them. Unfortunately, no massage tables here, but patron’s have been known to leave with the same peace of mind and pleased grin on their mug. Over 10,000 square feet and over 35 Plasma TV’s; there is bound to be a corner with your name on it! And if you have a couple extra bucks in your pocket, you can have a shot of catching your very own live lobster – winners get to feast on their succulent prize free of charge! Bon Appétit ! And that delicious crustacean tastes even better with Stella Artois fresh from the tap. More than just a bar, The Happy Ending promises to become a way of life for anyone looking for an up-beat, friendly, no-attitudes-allowed home away from home.
