Located across from the Century City Mall and a stone's throw away from the Nakatomi Plaza aka Fox Studios is SmithHouse, a vast, wood trimmed bar and restaurant. They even have their own valet service that charges a pretty reasonable $3 since street parking can be hard to come by or if you're not walking over from Fox in your office uniform of blue button up shirt tucked into dark slacks. Their draft list is immense and includes Strongbow so I can partake in drinking from a pint glass. Happy Hour is pretty solid with $1 off drafts, $5 well drinks and $5-6 appetizers. It had been a while since I visited the joint and it was pretty empty on a Monday night. Can't remember if they had barbeque on the menu then but they sure as shit have it now! Scarfed down a brisket sandwich while wishing one of my two Californian hetero life mates off on a European Vacation.
