The Hudson first came to town and took over a great spot that had housed a series of unfortunate establishments. Not until the Hudson did the place finally come into it’s own.
The Hudson has one of the best Happy Hour’s in town. The Mac and cheese, Short Rib Tacos and Albacore Crudo are your best bets (each only $7) and only $4 for draft Stella or well cocktails.
The interior looks like the inside of an antique ship and a seat by one of the tiny windows is the only place you’ll want to be. Just go somewhere else if those seats are all taken.
During the day, the place is calm and the crowd is mixed. On a weekend night, it becomes a bit of a douchebag haven and a serious pickup joint.
I love that Spellcheck didn’t correct “douchebag.”
The Hudson is in my neighborhood, the food is tasty and I appreciate that I can walk there.
The servers have a little bit of an attitude and it’s kind of like being served by a cranky model. They look good but getting them to smile is tougher than a Buckingham palace guard.
If you live in West Hollywood, definitely check this place out but I don’t consider it road-trip-worthy.
I’m sure you have your own Hudson in whatever neighborhood you live in. I dare you to try to tickle the servers and see if they crack a smile. Chances are, they won’t.
