Playful cocktails meet all-American smashed burgers and loaded fries at Hollywood’s new burger bar concept. Smashed takes over the former Five0Four bar space with an eclectic new hangout along Los Angeles’ Walk of Fame.
“In opening a new restaurant and bar concept, we wanted to honor Los Angeles’ beloved smashed burger, and create a fun space that played off of our '90s upbringing, even bringing in artist friends to collaborate in the space,” says coowner Kevin Zadoyan. “Smashed burgers and fries are my go-to comfort food, and paired with a cocktail or beer, you can’t go wrong.”
Playing along with the '90s nostalgia, Smashed’s interior is free-spirited and edgy. Local artists were tasked with graffitiing the walls in bright neon focusing on creativity and collaboration. Neon signage and other engaging elements are making Smashed Hollywood’s Instagramable hot spot.
The menu features casual classics from simple ingredients like the signature smashed Wagyu beef burger, plant-based Beyond Meat burgers and loaded fries topped with wagyu beef patties, American cheese, onions and a secret sauce. For drinks, the Smashed bar program offers signature slushy cocktails, wine and beer selections. Fun cocktails like Hot Girl Summer fit the location’s youthful vibe with chamomile infused tequila, ancho chile, lime and agave.
Opening earlier this month, the Smashed concept helms from the owners of the Mexican-inspired cantina, Te’Kila in Hollywood and Sherman Oaks. The two-day grand opening party kicked-off Friday, Oct. 11 with free burgers, giveaways, drinks and live DJ spinning.
Open daily from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m., the fast-casual bar and restaurant is perfect for social gatherings, date nights or big nights out on the strip.
