For British expats longing for a pint of Boddingtons and some fish and chips, the Cat & Fiddle, a Hollywood pub-restaurant formerly located for decades on Sunset Boulevard, is something of a home away from home. (In 2017, the pub reopened in a new location in Hollywood, on Highland Avenue. The original incarnation of the Cat & Fiddle opened in 1982.) But non-Limeys are just as likely to fall in love with the place. The late Kim Gardner, bass player for several British Invasion rock bands, operated the bar until his death in 2001, attracting a rough-and-tumble group of rockers and music industry types.
