Rock and Reilly's Irish Pub is one of the newer kids on the block on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, but it was discovered quickly by the likes of Kate Beckinsale, Carrie Underwood, Zac Efron, Gerard Butler, The Black Keys and other A-listers.

The traditional pub, with decor transported from the motherland, is in a building that once housed the Galaxy dance club (not London Fog, which was next door). The building got a complete makeover before emerging in its present incarnation in late 2011.

Fifty seven Irish whiskeys and a dozen gourmet brews are the highlights of the drinks menu. The food menu changes seasonally. I recommend the crab cakes and chicken skewers, but really it's the chocolate bread pudding I can't get off my mind. One of my favorite chocolate experiences in LA.

Expect a background of classic rock, not Irish jigs, coming from the live DJ and you might be surprised by the occasional impromptu live performance. The Wanted, Darren Criss, Kevin Farley, and others made appearances in the pub's first year.

There's an upstairs lounge and a few tables out back. Beware the moving walls across from the bar. You might be leaning on the sliding doors to the restrooms. If you want to test your drunk coordination, try your hand at the hook and ring bar game just inside the front window.

Rock and Reilly's has taken over the space next door that was most recently Duke's Coffee Shop (1987-2012 at this location) and will be expanding and opening an upstairs patio in late 2012.
