75cent cocktails?! The Arsenal Bar throwback to 1950's...

Since I know most of you are going through your MAD MEN withdrawal, you might as well take advantage of this little throwback to the 1950's while it's still around!  Plus, the thought of 1950's priced foods is really appealing, especially when 5 bedroom apartments on the upper east side cost $30,000, and Pete Campbell made $75 a week (clearly I've been catching up on my Season 1 episodes...)

"Wow, check out these new digs. After about a month of renovations, West LA's The Arsenal reopens today at 5PM. Keep in mind this restaurant and bar has been around since 1950 (wowza), so to preserve some of the venue's original aesthetic the dining room layout didn't much change (save for the new paint etc.), however the bar space was retooled and now displays gray wood-panel walls, an expanded lounge, and a large overhanging tv. As for the standard American menu, poutine makes an appearance, to addition to pizzas, burgers, and "three ways to get your mac and cheese fix."
The alcohol offerings, too, have changed, more booze behind the bar, new specialty cocktails like The Sequel (spicy ginger margarita), and an expanded beer and wine list.
As previously mentioned, to celebrate The Arsenal's reopening, today through October 28, 7-9PM, food and cocktail will be served off the venue's original 1950s menu at mid-century prices."
We got a chance to check it out last night & boy were the deals great!  75cent Pink Squirrels & Velvet Hammers, $1.50 Mai Tai's & Champagne, $3.50 Filet Mignon, $2.95 NY Strip Steak and 65cent Burgers and Grilled Cheese. 

Looking at the menu, K exclaimed that they were running out of food so we should hurry up and get there, but on further inspection, I believe that these are photocopies of their actual menus from 1950 with select items for sale.  Either way it was still exciting...  That is until we waited almost an hour for food.

Not that we couldn't expect it, with deals this great it was bound to be packed.  Also the first come first service tables with no reservations made it a little hard to find a place to park before we could even order.  So if you are thinking of hitting up this spot, make sure to come early and order quickly. 

Hurry, this special is only until Thursday... but their new assistant friendly happier hours have been extended to 8PM, which means I'll absolutely be back for repeat business!
