    Went during the Christmas and July event. Loved their commitment, they went above and beyond with décor, atmosphere, food and drink. Every single staff member was dressed up, incredibly kind and helpful. They had a Santa there to take photos with people (and their dogs) and made the rounds, chatting with everyone by their tables. The food and drinks were delicious. Parking was the only tricky bit, so get there early. Great night.

    Great place to hangout with friends and listen to live music. Cool Artist District spot! Especially nice last night for their Christmas in July two week event. Tastefully and festive-ly decorated with artist Joanna singing some Christmas music. Our second time here and definitely will keep coming back. 🍷

    A favourite cocktail bar — I never miss their Christmas pop-up. But I wish they hadn’t made the outdoor space smaller — it’s a little tight out there now.

    This is consistently one of my favorite spots in LA for both food and drink. The food is solid and fairly priced and the cocktails are some of the best in the city. And Blitzen's--there twice yearly holiday pop-up--is great.

    Last year I loved the Christmas in july experience so I decided to come back this year. The ambience was nice. They did good with the decor but last year was better. Honestly the food is 2 stars out of 5. Last year they were also playing the nightmare before christmas but not this time. If I were to return next year it would be strictly for a drink and the ambience. Also our server did not provide good service. Didn't check on us not even once.

    This was my first time there and it was such a good find. The food is great and the drinks are even better. I recommend the espresso martini and the magically delicious. I love how they don’t have sodas so they make their own. The vegan burger was top 3 vegan burgers I’ve had in my lyfe. The feel inside is so cool.

    The food menu is quite limited as is the drink selection. That is, aside from the “craft cocktails”. I’m sure their cocktails are exquisite, but we were there after a long day looking for food and drink. Obviously our expectation was not in line with their dining standard. There wasn’t much staff and our server seemed bothered that we decided to attempt to dine at Here and Now. He was very much condescending and behaved with quite a pretentiousness on which LA has earned its stereotype. If you’re looking for happy hour cocktails and none of the other more convenient places have space for you, maybe try out Here and Now. Otherwise, pass.

    Always great cocktails at this place. We went there to experience the Christmas decorations and themed cocktails. Service was good and the decorations were awesome in the bar. The only thing that subtracted from this place - the unexpected appearance of stripping Santa Clauses haha. At some point in the night, two Santa Clauses came out to start dancing to raunchy music and strip. The whole performance and activity just did not go with the rest of the bar and experience. It made me uncomfortable because it was unexpected and came out of nowhere. I did not appreciate that part of the night.

    Here & Now is great normally but the Blitzen's pop-up was disappointing this year. I've come plenty of times during Xmas (multiple times each year) and have always loved sitting at the bar and enjoying the space. This year I thought I'd plan ahead and make a reservation to sit at a table... Gotta say that was a mistake. They walked us through the bar and out to the cold patio where there were just a few Christmas trees around. Isn't the whole point of coming to enjoy being surrounded by Xmas decor? It could have been cool if it was over the top festive but the patio wasn't decorated much better than any other bar. It was so disappointing and strange that they considered that equal to the inside. My advice for anyone going is to just do bar seating. Outside of that, they had carolers which was cool. The drinks were pretty good. The burger is tiny and was just meat and cheese. Don't think I'll be coming back again this year unfortunately.

    This place is a mess. It reminded me of going home for the holidays. I always think its going to be cute and fun and festive and then I just end up frustrated, heading home completely disappointed and like I wasted a bunch of money. I had a reservation, and drove across town, just to sit at a table for 20 minutes and not even be acknowledged. Our server finally showed up looking completely disheveled and made no mention of us waiting. We order our drinks and its another 15 minutes before they reach our table. Meanwhile, I'm seeing people at the bar sit down and get served in no time. I finish my first drink very quickly but our server never comes by again to check on us or see if we want to order more drinks. We spent an hour at our table and only had one round of drinks with no opportunity to order more. Save yourself some time and money, get some cute christmas mugs and put on some holiday music at home - I promise you it will be a way better time and use of your money.
