About this place
Housed within the Highland Park Masonic Lodge, Checker Hall serves rustic Mediterranean cuisine and cocktails from its second story dining room—overlooking bustling Figueroa Street below. Think savory chicken skewers and octopus with labneh alongside signature cocktails and local draft beers. Open late every night.
Tips from locals
A modern Mediterranean housed in the refurbished and renovated Masonic Lodge. DJ's on the weekends, full bar with funky cocktails and great dishes! Gives you an overhead view of Figueroa and the hills across the way. Popular with the local hipsters and foodies.
Checker Hall is a great spot for cocktails or a light bite. They have a terrific happy hour with eats being only $5 a plate. You can dress up here or come casual. It's got a great art deco vibe.
It's a delicious restaurant and bar located in a former masonic hall. It also boasts a music venue.
One of our go-to bar/restaurants, especially during happy hour. Mediterranean food in an old masonic building. Always get the labne to start with your drinks. The octopus, skewers and haloumi salad are also favorites of ours.
The bar and music hall (The Lodge Room down the hall from the bar on the same floor) are chill, stylish and sexy sophisticated. Check for performances since live music is not always going on in the Lodge Room, but the DJ spins Thursday - Saturday and live Wednesday night sessions in the bar. Love…
