Laurel Tavern isn’t the place you go to get wild on a night out in Studio City. It’s the place where you grab after-work cocktails with coworkers you like, first date drinks when you just want to feel comfortable, or a glass of wine with your roommate before you head home to binge-watch Netlfix. Do we wish there were less hanging light bulbs around the bar? Sure. But you can’t get everything in life, and Laurel Tavern gives us plenty otherwise.
