Drink: Ladyface Alehouse and Brasserie

5 Jun

I’ve been home a few weeks now and am adjusting to these 40 hour work weeks pretty well – even though I constantly feel like I’m packing lunches or arranging my gym clothes, I still make time to see my friends and go out (even if the nights end embarrassingly early because I have to go to bed so I can then wake up!) There’s a limited amount of cool places in the Agoura/Oak Park/Westlake area, but there are a few diamonds in the rough. My recent fav is the Ladyface Alehouse and Brasserie located at the corner of Kanan and Agoura Roads.

I love just about everything about this place – the gastropub vibe and menu items, as well as the fact that it’s also a microbrewery (their IPA is amazing, and their coffee-infused porter is impressive as well). A couple of nights this week I’ve gone with a few friends and shared a pitcher out on the patio. The perfect summer weather and the laid-back yet chic atmosphere is the coolest thing Agoura’s ever seen. I also really like how there are local elements woven into the place – the name of the restaurant alone comes from Ladyface Mountain, which the restaurant overlooks, and the beers I mentioned earlier are actually called the “Picture City Porter” and the “Cheseboro IPA.”

While it’s true that I sometimes complain about the lack of quirky, soulful restaurants out in the Conejo, Ladyface totally does it right. There’s a chance I might end up making friends with another bartender, because  for the next few months, I’ll be a regular.
