Our Story

Melody Bar Location-002 Melody Bar and Grill has gathered diners and bargoers in an unvarying array of midcentury comfort and luxury. Melody Bar and Grill was established in 1952 and remained a prominent steak house through the 1980s. From the early ‘80s through the ‘90s, Melody became a sports bar and was well known for being an industry hangout for the Lakers basketball and Kings hockey players.  Through a steady process of minor renovations, new owners Christian Warren and Bobby Hughes have kept the nostalgic feel of the original Bar Melody, a neighborhood bar and lounge, while offering customers a modern experience, serving incredible food and providing popular entertainment.   Amber chandeliers dangle from ornate copper ceilings in the dining area where guests enjoy menu selections such as chicken Parmesan and top sirloin culotte steak designed by chef and owner Christian Warren. In the bar area, light fixtures reminiscent of a Japanese dojo illuminate a bar upholstered with tufted brown leather. Matching intricate cocktails with special events throughout the week, Melody hosts karaoke, live bands and DJs. We are the closest bar to the Los Angeles International Airport.
