POST 43's Historic Art Deco Bar

Members: The Post Bar is open most Thursday or Friday evenings from 7pm – 1am. Members are allowed three guests, but members must accompany their guests at all times.  We have billiards, sports on TV, music, and camaraderie; espresso, coffee and other non-alcoholic drinks are also available.  It’s a great time to hold your Committee Meetings!   Please do check the online calendar if you plan to visit, as filming or rental events may result in the bar being closed. Remember it’s your Clubhouse, use it!

Parking

We kindly ask that for Monday night post meetings where there is large attendance, able-bodied members park in the overflow across the street at Hollywood Bowl Lot D on the northeast corner of Milner and Highland Ave. to ensure our senior and disabled members have ample parking opportunity.
