Looking for a fun restaurant and bar scene to accommodate a large group? Look no further than El Cholo. Mexican food is always fun to share, and few places do it better than this family-owned favorite on Wilshire Boulevard. They’ve been at it for more than 90 years, and you can taste the passion and history in every bite of authentic goodness. It’s the ultimate after-work spot, so gather your office pals and get there as early as you can without risking your next promotion. You’ll want put your name in for a big table on the breezy outside patio for the ultimate in cocktails, cuisine, and people-watching. This location, not too far from the beach in Santa Monica, always attracts a cool crowd. Margaritas are the drink of choice here, and they do them well, with dozens of varieties to choose from. On the rocks or blended, with coconut or mango, and your choice of tequila. However you decide to go, they’re a festive start to the evening. When your table’s ready, order a bit of everything to share. There’s not one clunker on the menu but the filet mignon tacos and blue corn chicken enchiladas consistently draw raves. Before long, you’ll all be digging in to a Mexican feast under the starry LA skies, a nice soft landing after a hard day’s work.
