With the NBA Finals upon us, we wanted to make sure we had an eatery on your list where you can pop in to catch your favorite team as we wonder who will win between the Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors. 40 Love opened in October 2018 and is an "Upscale Country Club Concept Sports Lounge." The space is filled with dark wood, lush greenery and white brick that resembles a classic American country club.
While there, guests can enjoy giant plush booths and over 25 flat-screen TVs. This neighborhood sports bar is good to cheer on your team or simply to grab a bite to eat with your friends.
Founded by John Terzian and Brian Toll of the h.wood Group, 40 Love is a premier destination for everyone from locals to travelers to sports figures and Hollywood's elite. Inside, it's a lively hangout to catch the game with friends, in addition to an elevated space and ambiance, that is playful in nature and is vintage in décor.
You can head to a lush greenery outdoor patio with drinks for a game of shuffleboard, plus have a variety of bites and drinks to choose from their full cocktail menu, shareable plates, late night menu options, and brunch on the weekends.
We suggest that whether you're enjoying 40 Love for the summer or during gameday, menu highlights include Waygu Hot Dog (Maui Sweet Onions, Sautéed Peppers, Mayo and Banana Peppers), Chicken Wings (Lemon Pepper, Sweet & Spicy, BBQ, Buttery Buffalo or Hot) and their Western Bacon Cheeseburger (House-Blend Smashed Burger, American Cheese, Bacon, BBQ Sauce and Crispy Sweet Onions).
When you're ordering a cocktail, we suggest, Degrassy (Wirgina Black Whiskey, Cynar, Lemongrass Syrup, Angostura Bitters and Lemon), The Hard Sell (Fernet Branca, Carpano Antica, Lemon Demerara and Mint) and Mully's Cup (Plymoth Gin, Pimm's, Strawberry Tincture, Peychaud's Bitters and Lime).
