We stumbled upon this gem on our way to an art gallery in West Hollywood. We walked into a few other restaurants in the area, where the staff was so unwelcoming, The staff at Employees Only was the opposite. We got a seat at the bar immediately, and our bartender was funny, friendly and efficient. They have a bunch of fun drinks as well as incredible food! We felt liked we hit the jackpot!

We had such a wonderful meal at Employees Only. They're well known for the cocktails, but we loved the food as well. Japanese Sweet Potatoes, Hazelnut Pesto with Burrata to name a few were all fantastic dishes. Great place for groups (we had 5 people in our party). They have a cool vibe and usually have a DJ to help curate the music. Fun spot if you're around West Hollywood!

Fun little neighborhood restaurant/bar in West Hollywood. We came in here for their version of happy hour called golden hour and had a great time. Good food and even better drinks. We will definitely be back!

Came in for drinks and then we ended up staying for dinner. We had the Golden Smoke and EOspresso Martini...probably the best espresso martini I have ever had in my life. We then ordered the Steak Tartare to start and shared the Hazelnut Pesto and the Dry Aged Branzino. Absolutely amazing food and cocktails. Friendly and fun staff. Will definitely be back!

This would be five stars, but it is a tad bit pricey. Highly recommend for people who like convenience. They provide you unlimited ping pong balls an you don't even have to pick them all up if they go flying! You can pay for 30 minutes or longer, think it goes in 30 Min increments. 29 dollars for 30 min. Great ambiance and bar!

Golden smoke is good but a bit too sweat. The tartare is great! My girlfriend eat the whole plate.

With only a day in LA, our wonderful local friend recommended Employees Only and we were excited to eat and vibe in the grassy outdoor area.

There were limited vegan dishes for our friend, but our server was very accommodating and went above and beyond to get her a substitute dish.
Unfortunately whilst the service was phenomenal, it was the only saving grace to an otherwise poor eatery experience. The meat pasta dishes we ordered were cold, dry and left an odd after-taste and the starters were very bland. One thing to note is that we visited in September 2021 so the menu might of changed since then.

Overall, 1/5 for food, 5/5 for drinks and 10/5 for service!

The Sister Bar to EO NYC does not disappoint. Space has a cool vibe and drinks are just as impressive as NYC. One of the best patios in LA.

WOW! This place was awesome. Cocktails were stellar, and desserts were delish! Best of all, the DJ threw down. We only wished that they had a dance floor.

Came to employees only for their summer social club brunch pop up and it was pretty darn good. They have a lovely spacious patio area set up with plenty of fake grass and picnic style tables. We were seated at a small table for two which was a bit wobbly and soon after didn’t have enough room for the food/drinks we ordered but we made it work!

My friend ordered the Balinese jungle for a drink and said it was lovely though the coconut cream gives a sort of curdled look. They were having some issues with their ordering system since you do all your ordering through your phone and after asking a few people I found out they DO in fact serve coffee (I figured since it wasn’t offered on the menu for brunch something must be wrong!) but only cold brew that seems to come pre sweetened.

We ordered the churro waffle which did indeed taste like a fluffy on the inside crunchy on the outside churro. Unfortunately I had no idea the cream was supposed to be banana flavored because it just tasted like a normal whipped cream as well as the syrup tasting like any other syrup and lacking the caramel flavors usually led by piloncillo. We also ordered the furikake chilaquiles to share and added both the pork and beef to the dish. The egg was cooked well and the radishes added a fresh crunch but unfortunately everything sort of got lost underneath a slathering of sauce- we really couldn’t tell any differences in meat, Yuzu crema, or hibiscus onions. It all just tasted like the sauce on top which was good but sort of disappointing to lack the combination of flavors.

They seem to be sort of coming up with their menu and working through the kinks so I can’t fault them entirely- if anything it seems to be a nice patio to have a few drinks. Hopefully it will only get better from here.
