Key People

Tony Alcazar (chef-owner)

Summary

Chef Tony Alcazar presides over The Bottle Room, a brick-walled gastropub in Uptown Whittier that he co-owns with a pair of firefighters. Craft beer lovers already view The Bottle Room as a destination thanks to the high-test taps, but don’t sleep on the food. Alcazar previously worked as chef de cuisine of Nick + Stef’s Steakhouse for two years, spent a sting at Mike & Anne’s in South Pasadena and logged time at The Langham under Craig Strong. He’s now turning out some of the more interesting beer-friendly fare in L.A. County. Better yet, he changes the menu seasonally, or as inspiration strikes. The Bottle Room also hosts compelling brewmaster dinners, tap takeovers and other events on a regular basis.

The Scene

This former jewelry store now features a covered patio, L-shaped bar, bricks walls, high ceiling with exposed duct work, drop down Edison bulbs, and twin flat screen TVs.
