With rams' heads mounted on the walls and display cases of Native American artifacts, Bigfoot West sometimes seems like a museum, but it's actually one of the Westside's hippest bars. Whereas the Bigfoot Lodge, its sister location in Atwater, has more of a kitschy vibe, with sasquatch signage and a life-size Smokey the Bear statue, Bigfoot West is a relatively serious Western-themed variation. Vintage tribal paintings, feather-adorned medicine bags, racks of antlers and a large, intricately carved totem pole make the bar resemble a hunting lodge in the Pacific Northwest, while wooden walls evoke the stacked sides of a log cabin. A large, square-shaped wood bar dominates the center of the room, while intimate, dimly lit booths line the walls. The full bar has an extensive selection of whiskey (the Bigfoot even presents a regular whiskey-lovers night), and house specialty drinks include variations like the Toasted Marshmallow (with vodka and butterscotch liqueur) and the Girl Scout Cookie martini. Happy hour is the best time for cheap drinks. For smokers needing a break, there's an outdoor patio in the back. Although the bar doesn't serve food, menus from local restaurants are provided for delivery. Street parking, however, can be difficult in this partly residential West L.A. neighborhood, especially on weekends. Ages 21 & over.
