This is kind of a holdout in Downtown LA - a plain old regular bar where anyone of any age group, economic group, heritage etc could feel welcome and afford a drink. When it closed a few years ago I was quite concerned that it...More

Great bar with very friendly people and bartenders. They have an AMI Jukebox that plays every type of music.

If you're looking for a great dive bar - this is it! It's not trendy, it's not hip, and that's how I like it! You see the same people there and it's easy to make friends. The bartender is great! She orders pizza for people...More

Nothing can beat free popcorn, a good jukebox, football on TV, a bottle of cold berr accompanied with a glass of whiskey I guess. It is a great dive to hit at a weeknight with friends. Just make sure that you are not going to...More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
