When You’re Meeting Up With Ladies …

Dinner Plan: Barrel & Ashes, Power House, Golden Box

By The Editors

From the driving, to the parking, to the not knowing where to drive or park, dinner in L.A. is harder than it should be. That’s why we created Dinner Plan — your three-step itinerary to a damn good time. Here’s your plan.

There are nights when you go to dinner with your boys and the plan is to meet up with the ladies later.

This is a plan for one of those nights.


We start in Studio City.

Yes. That Studio City.

Trust us, this finger-licking BBQ spot is worth hopping the hill. Plus, the bartender’s hand is heavy and the beers are cold and tasty.

Then — because it’s easier to talk in a bar than a club — we’re sending you on a short drive to meet your lady friends (or some new ones) at an old place with a new face.

There, you can drink and converse.

Properly lubed up, you’ll then head to a new dance hall around the corner.

And then: let ‘er rip.
