Boho is a beautiful restaurant, that was immediately obvious. Great taste in decor, classy, lots of wood, beautiful bar. A real visual treat. Very new, but with this great location the tables were pretty much full when I stopped on Saturday early evening. Large bar with three sides, but very few people there. Nobody is really here to drink beer, just to have a nice dinner in Hollywood.
Beer selection is very nice. A breadth of countries and styles to choose from. With such a range of styles and regions, this is great for food pairing. Personally, I prefer more of a rare and American craft slant, but this is definitely a great place for beer. I had an Oskar Blues Ten Fidy, which was excellent. Small pour for about $7 though. Also had a Dean Bros. ESB for $6. A bit pricy with nothing on the menu under $6 too.
The menu focuses on their pizza, with a few "small" and "big" plates to choose from as well. Overall it is upscale with lots of fancy ingredients to brag about though prices fall in the region of around $12-20 depending. I tried the Pulled Pork Pizza ($14). Think CPK except with fancier sounding ingredients, a few bucks more expensive, and a lot less flavor (and why do half the pizzas have anchovies on them? I thought we had eliminated those in the pizza wars of 1987). I have to say I was disappointed. The ultra thin crust had next to no flavor, and the mix of toppings brought very little complexity to my pizza. For $14 I was quite disappointed. The major redeeming factor here is half-price pizzas during happy hour.
After my entree I sampled the Zeppolis, or Italian "doughnuts." Essentially a bowl of fried dough (or cake) balls dusted with powdered sugar. Served with three dipping sauces: chocolate, lemon sambuca curd, and raspberry. Very crunchy but nice flavor. Problem: the dipping sauces were in containers too small to dip into. A decent dessert.
The food seems to strive for upper class, but leaves me feeling overpromised and underdelivered. The service was nice, but seeing how there was three bartenders and maybe a handful of people at the bar, how else could it be? Staff was friendly and seemed busy getting pouring/mixing drinks for all the tables.
Overall a very nice destination for beer, a nice accompaniment for the times I go to Blue Palms (it is within walking distance). I would stop in for Happy Hour, not much else. The focus here seems to be on the food, and that did not impress.

I have been a supporter and defender of this place in both its incarnations and was probably the first beer geek in the door when they re-opened at H & H, so I was especially annoyed at my recent treatment. We went during Happy Hour and altho the menu indicated that all beers were Happy Hour prices and said nothing about exceptions, I was charged full price for my beer. I pointed it out and the bartender--who has been the bartender virtually every time I've been there- only said he needed to update the menu. I know it's only $2 but it really is the principle. I'm not a regular but I go there as consistently as I go to any beer bar in the area and I don't like to be baited and switched like that. So, to get that $2, he's lost not only my business but my encouraging others to try the place even if seemed touristy and not beer geeky enough. You may think I'm just an old crank and I won't disagree, but really, would you be content to be treated like that?

Visited 10/8/11 around 6:30 before the Blink-182 show with the wife.
Atm- A lot of wood, leather and dim lighting. A nice upper casual feel with an inviting decor.
Quality- When you look at the tap list, it's not the deepest nor is the bottle list but what they do have on tap is quite all over for country and style. Made it pretty easy to pick a few beers to do the "Flight of the Heavens" pick 4
Service- I don't know if it was because it was a Sat. night but service seemed a bit sluggish. Out waiter came after a good 7-10 min wait but was attentive while he was at the table.
Selection- I'm dropping the points down for what they have in terms of numbers not beers themselves. About a low number of taps makes it easy to have some good breweries on tap. FW, Bruery, Ommegang, A'Chouffe, Weinstephaner.
Food- I went with the Boho burger and it was damn good with that mayo they make. Wife had the thin pizza with home made sausage.
Value- This place was a bit pricey being in a high $ area of Hollywood. For a cup of soup, salad, 2 dinners a flight and a drink for the wife was almost $100.

Went late on a saturday night, made it in about an half an hour before midnight closing.
Since they were closing soon, we didn't eat anything, nor did we have an opportunity to take much of a look around. So, cant comment on food or decor.
Brew wise, i think they had probably two dozen or so taps. They have a name your own flight for $11 so I opted for that. The pours were about 5-6 ounces. The cool thing about the flight was you could select any of their beers without anything additional for bigger beers. I went with FW Parabola, Allagash Curieux, SN Ovila Saison and d'Achouffe La Chouffe. Can't remember many of the other choices, but they did have Sculpin.
Most individual pours were $6-8.
Service was quick and friendly, maybe because we were nearly the only people there, but no reason to deduct any points.
I'm rarely in Hollywood, but would make Boho a stop whenever I am.

Went here a couple times when out in Hollywood for a conference.
Definitely go during Happy Hour (4-7 weekdays, 2-5 weekends) when all their beers are $5.
Great selection of beers, with the taps rotating pretty frequently. Had both Stone 2011 AND 2010 RIS on tap, with other great California options.
Bartenders are knowledgeable and friendly, food is good. Great selection of beers.
Overall, it's not the best place in Hollywood to go, but it's a great place if you want craft beer, especially at a good price and convenient location.

First time coming to Boho not without some trouble. Like a fool I wandered around the Arclight plaza without realizing the restaurant was on the corner! Oh well, still made happy hour!
Very nice wooden, American contemporary decor complete with comfortable couches, wooden tables, brick, and a few large flat screen television. Floors were very clean and the ceilings were very high.
The tap-list was not very extensive, but it represented a large variety of styles, supplemented by a larger bottle list. While the prices were good for happy hour discount ($5), they were on the pricey side normally.
Food was definitely a plus with some high quality gastropub fare, and the waitstaff was very responsive and friendly, even if the bartender didn't don a smile at all times.
Boho is certainly worthy of a stop for a nice dinner complemented by a nice brew. As far as people are concerned, it was pretty dead early Cinco de Mayo evening so I can not comment on that aspect of the atmosphere. I would, and probably will, come back for a meal sometime soon.

Stopped by here with a CA BA after a few beers at Blue Palms.
Atmosphere is phenomenal - I don't remember all the specifics but I remember thinking I was at an arboretum with couches and lots of glass. The bar is fairly large with rich furnishings. The path to the bathroom goes behind the bar and rare bottled beers are visible behind a glass partition.
Quality is good. All beer was served at the proper temperature with good amounts of head.
Service was good. We arrived just as they were about to close and the bartender was a bit surly but still managed to be friendly enough. We didn't ask any beer-related questions so I can't give any information on that front.
Selection was very good. 12-15 beers were on-tap, about 8 of which were fairly rare. This is just a notch behind Blue Palms in my opinion.
Value was good. Slightly pricey but nothing too bad.
Overall this was a very interesting place that I would have enjoyed visiting even without the good beer. Worth a stop.

If you are in Hollywood, this is a nice place to get a good pint or 2.
Very nice selection of beers on tap. A lot of the usual suspects and a few surprises too.
Right next to Amoeba records and the Arclight Cinema and down the road from the Hollywood Farmers Market.
They have easy (albeit pricey) parking down below.
The food is much better than Blue Palms so if you are out for dinner/lunch and a coupla pints this is a great bet.
Well worth a visit but it's so close to Blue Palms that if you want to get your beer geek on walk 6 blocks.

I stopped in while in LA on business based on the BA listing.
Boho is a little more upscale than my usual haunts but it's LA and they have good beer so it worked. The front area is well lit and has a variety soft lounge chairs and tables. The back area is darker with the bar and has much more of a pub feel. The décor is varied but it fits together well. They also have a small seating area out front.
I actually started to get used to the posh setting and focused on the beer list. They had 30 or so on tap with lots of CA beers and some from the rest of the US and Europe. Then they had about 13 in the bottle. The list isn't outstanding but it's solid. I went with a Stone XIII Anniversary and a Craftsman Poppyfields. Both were fresh and tasty. They had a half price happy hour going so we paid $13 for four beers!
Boho is definitely a good beer bar and an especially good stop if you can hit happy hour.

I stopped in here at about 5:30 pm today after shopping at Amoeba Music right across the street and before heading up to Blue Palms, I immediately noticed the cool decor when I first walked in, lots of wood and kind of a landscape feel in there, took a seat in the bar area towards the back and looked over the taps that totaled up right around thirty or maybe a little less, some of the beers included Aventinus, Telegrpah Reserve Sour Wheat, Port 3rd Anniversary which I had a glass of for six dollars, and yes they serve their various styles of beer in proper glassware, other beers included Alesmith Lil' Devil, Kostritzer, Speakeasy Hunter's Point Porter, North Coast Brother Thelonious, Rogue Chocolate Stout, and Stone Russian Imperial Stout, their bottle list was small with about fifteen offerings maximum but it had a few cool things inlcuding Cantillon Lou Pepe Kriek priced at a whopping thirty-nine dollars, also Fantome Printemps, Allagash Confluence, and Malheur Brut Noir, I had the Margherita pizza to eat and while it was pretty good, it was nothing special either, a little overpriced at twelve dollars, it is rather small portions too, oddly you can egg to it for a dollar more, did not have the bravery to attempt that one, pizza seems like the way to go here based on what I have heard from other customers and recommendations by the bartender, place was super clean as expected since it is brand new, there is a lot of room in there and also lots of potential, service was weak and some of the people working there needed to get over themselves, that aside it is a nice addition to the LA beer scene and I look forward to see what becomes of it in the future, also good to hear Ryan from Verdugo is running things as far as beer goes, cannot go wrong there, will go back, worth checking out
