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.

Wow! A session of King Trivia is always competitive. But this week's quiz at The Famous on Brand in Glendale really took it to a whole new level. The lead changed hands after every round, and when the dust settled and the final answer sheets were scored, the top five teams had scores of 67-68-69-70 and 71!!

The formidable foursome of You're a Quizard, Harry took the win, with an ever-so-slim one-point edge over Quiz Me Like One of Your French Girls, who took second by a single point over To Infinity and Beyonce.

They didn't get any points for it, but I'm definitely adding Quiz Me Like One of Your French Girls to the quizmaster's list of odd, unexpected, outstanding and inventive team names. I mean, sheesh! We LOVE obscure film references, and this one was Titanic-ally good. So you're on the list, you clever Girls, and you deserve it.

See ya next week.
