Back in the day, the only reason I'd visit Tony's Darts Away in Burbank was to see a fight, and I'm not talking about a boxing match on TV. I'm happy to report that urban renewal in our city has extended to Magnolia Boulevard, and the "New Tony's" is a cleaner, healthier, cooler place to visit now that new management is running the show.
Tony's is a "niche bar" that serves only beer, wine, soda, meats and breads from the state of California. Keeping it Californian is a unique idea and the big selling point. If you're looking for a Coors Light and a greasy burger, go someplace else. You won't find those here.
The first thing you notice when you walk into Tony's is the hipster crowd that populates the lengthy bar and surrounding tables. Long gone are the wannabe gang members and local drunks who used to get Tony's listed in the police report of the paper every week.
