A Big Hunk O’ Love: The Federal Bar in North Hollywood


If you’re ever out near North Hollywood and your sweet tooth is aching for a tasty treat, look no further than The Federal, NoHo’s hip and wonderfully moody bar.

The Federal Bar 
5303 Lankershim Blvd, North Hollywood, CA 91601

Their Elvis Pie, a beautiful concoction of chocolate, peanut butter and caramelized bananas is sumptuous and wickedly delicious. A hardened chocolate top, crunchy outer peanut buttery crust and the smooth and creamy banana filling create an enchanting experience in your mouth of diverse flavors and textures. The raspberry syrup designs add a tiny sweet and sour element that delightfully compliments the richness of the pie.


The 9 dollar dessert is decadent enough to make it nearly impossible to eat alone, so sharing this treat is perfect! The dessert is sure to make you thirsty, so wash it down with Not Your Father’s Root Beer, a yummy drink that tastes ridiculously like the innocent drink for which it is named. Even vehement beer haters like me (sorry!) can fall for this delectable beverage.

Make sure to take a seat in the comfy and luxurious sofas in the back for a relaxing and intimate experience immersed in the dim lights and super cool atmosphere.
