Hg2 : The Hedonist

Sam’s Hofbrau

Don’t let the name or the portly Teutonic bartender hoisting a stein on the old school signage fool you: this isn’t a German beer garden with the bonus of bikini babes, though it does specialise in zaftig, of the all-natural variety. It’s a no-frills, no-cover, no-drink-minimum, no-pressure juggy joint servicing a hard-working Downtown crowd (be wary: the ‘hood is dictionary-def ‘seedy’) and home to some of the most happy-go-lucky but occasionally hard-assed hardbodies circling the pole (they’ll tell you exactly what you can’t get away with). The place, the dancers, and the vibe are so retro-quirky-cool, is it any wonder semi-regular Quentin Tarantino made it a location in Jackie Brown?
