This is a must-visit place in Los Angeles. I always take my friends from out of town to this spot. Not only is the drive there gorgeous – it’s on Sunset blvd which has a grand view of the city – but the location is central to a lot of other cool spots like the House of Blues.
The Saddle Ranch is really unique because it somehow blends a funky country vibe with the typical LA types. There is old wooden décor, rock music on the tv screens, and aspiring models and actors as your servers. Somehow it all works. The most amusing thing about this place is the infamous bull in the middle of the saloon. You can step right on up and ride at your own risk. Women beware, if you are shy this is not the activity for you. I never do it because I’m pretty sure the operator is told to rock the bull as slowly and sensually as possible when a lady is riding. It’s not for me, but a lot of girls and guys do have fun with it!
Drinks are pricey, but if you go during happy hour (16:00 – 18:30) or after midnight where you can find really good drink and food specials. If you want to know more about how wild this place can get, feel free to check YouTube. They used to have a reality TV show on the E Network!
