Ken Bruen, recipient of the first David Goodis Award at first NoirCon, 2008

"NoirCon remains the jewel in the Noir landscape.
 If it didn't exist we would have to darkly dream it."

  1. If you love a solid selection of quality craft beers then this place is a terrific choice to start off your night. The venues in Los Angeles have happy hours Saturday night so you can’t go wrong. Definitely the kind of place to start off your night.
