The barrel-shaped exterior of Idle Hour is iconic. It’s soo iconic that it was given landmark status. In 2010 it became Los Angeles’s Historic-Cultural Monument #977.

Big Wangs claims to have the most H.D. T.V.s of any restaurant in Los Angeles. I have no idea if that’s true, but they sure do have a lot—more than enough to make every seat in the house a great one.
Wings and beer are the unquestioned stars of the menu. However, they also make great burgers and pizza.
