THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Writers Room Restaurant Review

: GOLDEN BOX NOW OCCUPIES THE SPACE ONCE HOME TO THE WRITERS ROOM. F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway and William Faulkner used to imbibe and write in this room, which was once part of Musso & Frank Grill before the classic Hollywood restaurant moved next door in 1934. The speakeasy was dormant for years, but now you too can sip cocktails and perhaps compose something on your iPad. (The Writers Room is open to the public, though there are private event nights when admission is guest list only.) The beautifully restored space features a bar with custom wallpaper and several tall booths. “Table Six” is actually a 1920s-era elevator brought in from New York that is enclosed with curtains for extra privacy. There’s also a long, narrow area outside with antique-style couches and heat lamps. Mixologist Daniel Nelson designed the cocktail list, while food from the small bar menu makes its way over from the kitchen at the adjacent supperclub at the Vogue Theater. There’s no signage for The Writers Room --- look for the entrance in the parking lot behind Musso & Frank Grill.
