Mini Monster Now Open, Poke Bar Soon to Follow at Universal CityWalk Hollywood!


The complete overhaul of CityWalk Hollywood continues with more brand new, high concept dining opening at the entertainment destination. This time featuring smaller, more local options for those who like more unique flavors.

Universal CityWalk introduces two sweet and savory casual concepts, Mini Monster and Poke Bar, adding an all-new delicious dimension to the destination’s latest dining options that already include the popular Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville, Ludo Lefebvre’s LudoBird and Dong Po Kitchen.

Now open, Mini Monster is recognized as one of the most Instagrammed restaurants in Southern California and features a menu of small-batch flavorfully brewed teas and lemonades, served in California glass jars and specially-designed signature light bulbs. The specialty drinks come made to order with warm boba (black tapioca pearls) and whimsical clouds of spun-to-order cotton candy.

Opening in late-August, Poke Bar will serve up a fresh twist on Hawaiian cuisine with build-your-own poke bowls and will feature a customizable menu that includes a variety of seafood including ahi tuna, salmon and albacore, as well as vegetarian options paired with tasty ingredients that range from cucumber salad and crabmeat to seaweed salad and edamame.

The much anticipated arrival of Mini Monster and Poke Bar to Universal CityWalk coincides with the vibrant outdoor epicenter’s elaborate, multi-million dollar revitalization.

For over 20 years, CityWalk has boosted the city’s rhythm through a foundation built on providing memorable entertainment experiences.  With a series of dramatic enhancements underway, which include the introduction of new restaurants, shopping experiences, visually aesthetic design features and a state-of-the-art multi-million dollar Universal Cinema renovation, the spotlight shines brightly on CityWalk as one of L.A.’s most influential lifestyle centers.
