History of the Red Lion Tavern
Updated: Mar 11
You’ve probably enjoyed a beer or two at the Red Lion at some point, but did you know it was originally an English pub? Or that it used to have a dress code to keep out so-called “undesirables?” Or that it’s an epicenter of Lithuanian life in Los Angeles? The owner and three longtime dirndl-clad employees talk about the legendary restaurant’s history in this delightful interview done by the Silver Lake History Collective.
The Red Lion is located at 2366 Glendale Blvd. in Silver Lake.
