The town's hottest gastropub

Authentic Sonoran cuisine, made with generations-old family recipes  

Legendary BBQ, slow-smoked daily

LA's oldest bar, open since 1878 with a modern mixology program



Downtown Newhall is one of the LA food scene's best-kept secrets. Tucked away in the Santa Clarita Valley 30 miles north of Downtown LA, this quaint Wild-West community serves as a refreshing escape from the big city and a step back in time. The neighborhood's rich history dates back to the mid-1800's, later attracting stars like John Wayne and William Hart, who frequented Main Street while filming for the silver screen.


Newhall's restaurants have exploded in recent years, with a row of family-owned destinations specializing in cuisines that span across the continent. Each spot pays homage to the town's old-school feel while boasting spectacular signatures that compete with any neighborhood in LA, often at far lower prices.

Overview & Photos

Eighth & Rail first opened in 1878 as Derrick’s Saloon. In the last 140 years we've appeared in multiple movies and TV shows and served everyone from cowboys and western film stars to bikers and—now—those simply looking for a great drink with a twist.

Owner Louise Castaldo first tended bar here in the 80’s before coming back to buy the place decades later, where she led an extensive remodel and brought on Beverage Director Frankie Gunn. Eighth & Rail’s sensational cocktails and craft beers have catapulted it into one of the town’s top drinking destinations.

General Instructions

Choosing Your Tour Date, Time and Group Size 

To book this curated tour, first select your desired Tour Date on the calendar. You'll then be prompted to select the Time Slot displayed, which lists the arrival windows for each restaurant. You will be able to visit each place in any order, at any valid time. For example, if you see 'Restaurant ABC: 11a - 6p, 8 - 10p  |  Restaurant XYZ: 12 - 9p,' you can arrive at at Restaurant ABC anytime from 11am - 6pm or 8 - 10pm, and you can arrive at Restaurant XYZ anytime from 12 - 9pm.


If your desired tour date is not available, the restaurants are either closed or do not accept TastePro bookings on that day. If this happens, please choose a different tour date or select a different restaurant. 


Restaurants will not accept TastePro bookings outside the date listed on your booking confirmation. If you arrive outside the time window listed on your booking confirmation, the restaurant has full discretion in whether to seat you. If they are unable to seat you, you can request your tasting menu to-go. Please refer to our refund policy for more details. 


TastePro bookings are only valid for the number of people listed on your booking confirmation. If you show up with more people than you paid for, your group will not be served until the additional guests book on TastePro. To do this, simply book this same tour for the same date. You'll receive a separate booking confirmation for these additional guests.  


Drink Pairings

Most restaurants offer an optional drink pairing to enhance the dining experience. Oftentimes, the drinks offered are significantly discounted compared to what they would cost if ordered in-person. If you wish to order drinks during your tour, we strongly recommend adding a drink pairing when booking in order to take advantage of this opportunity. To do this, simply choose 'add drink pairing' below your date, time and group size and select the option that best suits you. The drink pairing price will automatically be added to your booking. Drink pairing options listed on each tasting menu are not included with the base price. 


If not everyone in your group wishes to purchase a drink pairing, we recommend making two separate bookings--one for those in your party who want drink pairings, and one for those who don't. Make sure that the tour dates match and that the group size adds up to everyone in your party. You will receive two separate booking confirmations.


Anyone who consumes alcoholic beverages must have a valid ID proving they are of legal drinking age. No refunds will be issued for people who purchase drink pairings and are unable to present valid ID. Please drink responsibly.

Why do some tours have time windows that exclude peak meal times?

Restaurants want to provide the best experience for each of their guests. If a restaurant is routinely full during peak meal periods, they will likely choose not to accept TastePro bookings during those windows, in order to best control crowds and wait times. Most standard food tours take place during non-peak hours for the same reason. 


If a restaurant is available during meal peak hours and you visit at those times, you may be required to wait for a table. TastePro is not responsible for guests missing arrival windows due to unexpected wait times. If you are concerned about wait times, we recommend taking your tour during non-peak hours or requesting your tasting menu selections as a to-go order.


Please also note that restaurant availability is displayed in the restaurant's local time. Plan accordingly if you are booking from a different time zone. 


Can I make substitutions or order additional items? 

The restaurant has full discretion on the extent to which substitutions are allowed. If you don’t like the options listed on a tasting menu, we recommend booking a different restaurant. 


Most restaurants will allow TastePro guests to order additional items from the standard menu during their tour. Please note that you are responsible for payment, tax and tip for any additional items not included in your tasting menu.
