About The Famous Bar

The Famous craft cocktail lounge is located in Glendale's historic Huntley-Evans building, directly across the street from the Americana at Brand. It follows an eclectic and rich pedigree of establishments that have called this building home in the last century, most notably the early Glendale landmark, The Famous Department Store. The Famous, true to its heritage, embraces the classic art of fine craft cocktail creation, invented in the United States in 1856, using bitters, juices, syrups, and infusions, prepared in-house using fresh ingredients from local markets and growers. Cocktails served at The Famous are identical to those served nearly 100 years ago when the building was constructed.

Okay, so, Yer a Quizard Harry is gettin' pretty full of themselves. I mean, not only did they win the quiz for the second week in a row! They did it by successfully doubling-down not once; not twice; but FOUR times! Sheesh! Those muggles are pretty smart!

And love was in the air at The Famous in Glendale last night! At least, maybe. Quizmaster's must be very observant. And last night, we observed an attractive young couple seated on the couch across from the QM Command Center (i.e. my little table in the corner) who were new to our game.

They seemed to be enjoying the quiz - and each other's company - very much. So when the young lady turned in her answer sheet after Round 5, I said, "you guys look great together! How long have you been together?"

She smiled, laughed a little and said, "this is our first date!"

"You chose trivia night for your first date!? That's fantastic!" I replied. "So, how's it going so far?" I asked.

"Pretty good, I think. We'll see..." she said with a smile.

No, they didn't finish in the top three, but based on the kiss they shared later in the evening, I believe they felt like they were winning.

See y'all next week.
