“The return of the iconic Tail o’ the Pup (originally located on S. La Cienega Blvd. across from the SLS Hotel) is a direct reflection of proprietor 1933 Group’s (Highland Park Bowl, The Formosa Café) dedication to preserving, protecting, and reviving Los Angeles History. Tail o’ the Pup’s giant hotdog shaped building has been attracting visitors to Hollywood since 1946. This ambitious revival isn’t just about nostalgia. The 1933 Group aims to not only celebrate Tail o’ the Pup’s past, but also pave the way for new endeavors and memories which can be celebrated for years to come.”
“The 1933 Group’s team is dedicated to creating tasty dogs, snacks, shakes, and more that satisfy modern tastes while honoring Tail o’ the Pup’s rich history. The 1933 Group works tirelessly to source high quality ingredients and develop house-made recipes with their guests in mind. They are proud to feature a surprisingly diverse menu featuring vegetarian and gluten-free options.” In the proud tradition of Tail o’ the Pup there is even a Doggy Menu where you can “Pamper Your Pup.”
Also a full liquor license with a nightly Happy Hour ($5 lagers) from 6 to 9:00 p.m.
“Formed nearly two decades ago, the 1933 Group helms a lauded portfolio of bars and restaurants in Los Angeles, including the historical restorations of Highland Park Bowl and the barrel-shaped bar Idle Hour in North Hollywood, Harlowe in West Hollywood, Sassafras in Hollywood, La Cuevita in Highland Park, Bigfoot Lodge in Los Feliz, Thirsty Crow in Silver Lake, Culver City’s Bigfoot West and Oldfield’s Liquor Room. The latest additions are the iconic Formosa Café and the restored and expanded Tail o’ the Pup. Combining design aesthetics that embrace various time periods in early America with a passion for cocktails and the revival of the art of bartending, owners Bobby Green, Dimitri Komarov, and Dmitry Liberman create imaginative libations and scenes throughout LA’s drinking landscape.”
