THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Library Restaurant Review

: Located on the second level of The Redbury hotel, The Library offers a cozy, lounge-y setting for drinks and light bites. Books are strewn about the shelves and a card catalog cabinet is nestled in a corner next to the bar. The pseudo-studious setting also features a pool table and digital photo booth. Outside there's a gorgeous courtyard with fire pits and a large glass wall overlooking the intersection of Hollywood and Vine. The short menu lists select dishes from Cleo, including Mediterranean dips, salads, kebabs and flatbreads. Among the specialty cocktails, we're fans of the Old Hollywood, a twist on the Old Fashioned made with Bulleit Bourbon whiskey, house-made fig-almond syrup and a dash of walnut bitters.
