It was a great experience, the food was great and the atmosphere is the best part about it. It’s a very relaxed chill vibe and the drinks are great as well.

Great “funky” gastro pub. Leonard our server was awesome. Lots of cocktails to choose from and good beers too. Menu while not a lot of dinner type options had good variety and everything was fresh and delicious. Chicken sandwich was best I ever had. Wife had burger which was fantastic also. Brussel sprouts and wings also very good. My daughters loved the baked Brie. Can’t say anything bad about this place. Our first time visiting it - we will be back !

We came for their Christmas in July celebration. The service was HORRIBLE. We waited over an hour for cocktails that we asked for numerous times, asked no less than 4 times for more water, and ask for extra bread atleast four times that just never came. They did comp a lot of our bill but was just stuff that was easily avoidable - especially because we kept seeing drinks going past us. I have always loved their Christmas celebration and we were considering reaching out to book for a large private party, but will not be going back based on last night’s experience.

I was celebrating my birthday and they had ran out of everything. They didn’t even have lettuce. The waitress was completely not knowledgeable of anything or any dietary restrictions. They took so long to bring out our drinks too

What can I say, Christmas in July was amazing at the Here and Now, and what’s best is that we were there on the 31st so we were able to celebrate New Year’s Eve! Love, love, love The Here and Now in DTLA!

Loved the whole atmosphere of the bar! Drinks were relatively strong, not too much liquor where it was overpowering but strong enough to get a buzz after a handle of drinks. Can’t remember the waitresses name but she was so nice. Hoping for a Halloween theme for October!

We show up right at our reservation time which was 5pm and they aren’t even ready to open. We get in after 10 min and we are the first people there and they send us straight to the back. We accept it and try to get into the holiday mood. As we finally start to enjoy ourselves the waitress comes over to tell us we only have 8 min left. Not only did they rob of us of our 90 min they killed the vibe. We asked for the bill and left after 1 hour.

My group had a fantastic time at the Here and Now for Blitzen. We enjoyed doing a shotski, and while our cocktails did take a while to come out the waitress more than made up with it for a round of free shots. The overlay was fantastic and festive, just what we wanted for Christmas in July.

Food and ambiance is really great! Cocktails were not so good, several times the bartender was caught not knowing which drink was which and which ingredients he had placed in the shaker already. They were terrible to sip on. Ive visited this place since about 2019 when i first joined during a holiday event and their service has been degrading over the years, notably other people were also expressing their displeasure. I hope it improves!

The Blitzen's pop-up is the most wonderful time of the year. Doing a Christmas in July version to make up for missing last Christmas is a real treat. If you get the chance, you should really check it out.

This place was cute and had a great holiday themed pop up. The food menu was limited. The food was decent but nothing I would go back for. The booths were run down and the sets were peeling and in desperate need of reupholstering. The service wasn't great. Our waitress took her time and didn't really come back to check on us. We had to ask other wait staff for assistance.

Nice vibe and front staff. But our waiter forgot to put in our order for a whole hour (!) and mgmt comped us a $10 bowl of beans. Sigh. Bottom line: Go for drinks and nibbles, but not a meal.

Incredible, inventive drinks and delicious food. Live music brought me such joy after a year+ in quarantine. Dog-friendly patio makes it welcoming to all members of your family. Would love it if they developed their vegan selection further, but the couple of options they had were delicious. So glad to see this place thriving again!
