Found Ireland in LA.. The owners and service were great. They served great food and drinks. A must on weekends or music being performed.

Small Irish themed pub. Not being familiar with the venue, Sasha, the bar maid, immediatly introduced herself and made us feel very welcome. We had "to die for" cheese burgers and a few drinks. Stayed to see Keith Harkin (2shows) , had a few more drinks.🍺🍹🍺🍹. Music was great⚓🏄👍🎵🎶 SASHSA took very good care of us all night. Thank You... More

Yes this is the real Ireland, but it's blended into the real Los angeles, and the amalgam is an interesting experience. Drop by in the afternoon when it's quiet, for one kind of experience. Come in the evening for another. I think they still have Murphy's still on tap, and if so, try it in place of the Guinness. Even... More

Grabbed a quick beer on our walk over to the farmers market. Nice "blue collar" bar. A little dark inside but a great selection of beers.

Nice little pub with a relaxed atmosphere. After a long day of walking around, I enjoyed a great Guinness and had a great talk about LA with one of the bartenders, Ernesto, who was very cool.

The biggest drawback is the lack of a good menu and the short kitchen hours. It's just the very basics. (hamburger, patty melt, wings.) I can't even recall them having a shepherd's pie or any traditional Irish dishes. I went in here around 5PM on a weekday. There were only about 5 people in the place, but it does fill... More

This is a good place, but parking can be terribile. I've tried to go there when there is not a single place to park, public, private or on the street, within a mile of the pub, and that is no exaggeration. Once you get in, the music can be eclectic, Irish, rock, folk, Christian, whatever. The bar staff is nice... More

Between the history of the bar, the wonderful Neil Boyle original paintings on the walls, the great waitstaff (go Sasha!) and the terrific music/entertainment, Molly's is the place to spend a great night with friends and/or family. You'll enjoy the craic!
