Bergin's is literally that place where "Everybody knows your name..." You've probably passed it a thousand times - GO! The atmosphere is the reason - step in and you've stepped back in time. The entire place is steeped in tradition, history, warmth, and a bygone...More

The restaurant will be closing it's doors but the bar will remain open. I came by to try their Fried Chicken sandwich but they were completely sold out of food with a packed house of patrons drinking away.

from the moment you walk in this place you feel you are traveling back in time. The shamrocks on the ceiling, the ethnic round bar & you in Boston, Liverpool or Glasgow! The staff are cool & the food is to die for

Had the fried chicken sandwich. Was great. The hot pretzel was a great starter. Great place! The place has an old school LA feel. Really enjoyed it.

My B&B was right across the street, so i tried it. It seemed like a local bar with an Irish, throughbred horse theme. The service was good, the well drink generous and the burger was good. The fries I didn;t like too hard and crisp...More
