Wolf & Crane, Little Tokyo



wolf and crane little tokyo


LOS ANGELES | Wolf & Crane is a bar that we first spotted in Little Tokyo while heading for Sushi at Sushi Gen just a few doors up. It’s named after the Aesop fable, Honshu Wolf and the Red-Crowned Crane, which symbolises protection and longevity in Japanese mythology. What this means for your drinking experience here we don’t quite know, but there’s more Japanese inspiration when you take a look at the menu. The highball is a drink we developed quite a fondness for while traveling through Japan and here you’ll find the classic (with the addition of ginger beer) along with six other highball cocktails.

The beer list contains Sapporo and Codeo Ruri, along with eight rotating local beers, while wine lovers have a choice from two whites and two reds. Whisky is more of the focus at Wolf & Crane, and you’ll find a very nice selection of Japanese, Taiwanese, Scottish, Irish and American Whiskys on offer. For us, the Hibiki 21yo is one of our all time favourites, but it’s quite pricey outside of Japan so we tend to stick to the 12yo, which is still very tasty, and is best enjoyed on the rocks.

Pitfire Pizza’s menu is available for those who are hungry, and a $1.00 delivery fee will get anything from the menu delivered to you at the bar in about 30 minutes.

Tunes range from 80s classics and 90s indie-pop and are kept at a level which promotes conversation. No pretension, no following trends here, just a nice neighborhood bar bar with great service and a theme and offering that the owners are genuinely passionate about.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
