The York in Highland Park

In my haste of getting ready for my weekend trip, I realize I never told you about my visit, last Saturday night, to The York. To catch you up to speed, check out my blog post about earlier in the day HERE. We had a lovely day at the Santa Anita Park (watching horse races), and decided to continue on to The York in Highland Park for dinner.

Parking was tricky, so I ended up just parking in the lot behind the strip that the York is apart of. It cost a few bucks, but it was worth it not to have to park far away. This neighborhood is also a little sketchy, so walking alone there at night is not recommended. The above photo was taken from that parking lot. SHARK!

The above pictures are of the alley that takes you from the parking lot to the street where all the store/bar entrances are. This alley, if based on smell, is covered in urine BUT look at that cool graffiti.

Once inside The York, I finally got to see what my friend Michelle has been raving about.

They have a large bar in the center of the place and seating/booths in a circle around it. I ordered a girlie cocktail from their extensive drink menu. The menu board photo below is one of 4 (?) large boards hanging. They have everything you could think of.

As for food, my friend Lindsey and I split an order of grilled cheese made with truffle oil (my new favorite oil) and we each ordered the vegan soup on the day. The food was so delicious and reasonably priced. We split this giant grilled cheese, which was a good decision because it was so big. The massive bowl of soup, plus half the grilled cheese came out to about $18. All of this was a great decision.

Look at that soup… yuuuum. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it.

The atmosphere of this place is as cool as the food is delicious. So, really cool. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Keep in mind that the second Saturday of every month NELAart does their Gallery Night which The York happens to be apart of. Check it out then or check their schedule HERE to see when their next Trivia Night is (it’s Mondays at 9p).

  1. One of my favorite bars in the neighborhood. The staff is super friendly, and what also makes them stand apart from other bars in the village is their Cask engine. Exclusive beers from Craftsman Brewing in Pasadena. Thanks for visiting my hood girl. Come next month for NELA artwalk night, way less sketchy and so much more going on within in the area.

    • Thank you for your message. I completely forgot to mention the Craftsman Brewing beers offered at The York. I can’t wait for the next art walk to come visit it again and learn more about the neighborhood. Thanks for reading 🙂
