If you crave something unusual with your dinner, you’ll want to visit some of the weirdest restaurants in Los Angeles. These places care as much about entertainment as they do about food. Here are 5 of our top picks for a meal you’ll never forget.

Clifton’s Republic:

You’ll think you’re in a natural history museum when you see all the taxidermy and nature dioramas. This cafeteria-style eatery opened in 1935 and looks better than ever after a recent major remodeling. Listen to the gurgling waterfall and take shade under the gigantic fake redwood tree. Adults can choose from 5 different bars, and kids can enjoy stage shows and character appearances on weekends at Clifton’s. (Downtown Los Angeles)

Pan Am Experience:

If you’re too young to have flown Pan Am, you may still have seen movies with scenes from the golden days of air travel. Now you can experience it first hand on a movie set dining on a 6-course meal inside a replica of a Boeing 747. It’s expensive, but everything is first class at Pan Am Experience. (Burbank)

Beetle House:

The first Beetle House was in New York, but you don’t have to travel that far anymore. This spooky restaurant and bar is much bigger than the East Coast version and will please any Tim Burton or Alfred Hitchcock fan. (Hollywood)


No, they didn’t forget to pay the electric bill. Dinner is served in a pitch-black room at Opaque to create a novel sensory experience. (Santa Monica)


What’s not to love about quirky comfort food served up in a little bungalow in a residential neighborhood? The owners of Grub are 2 former California Pizza Kitchen waitresses who like to do fun things with food. (Hollywood)
