    For some reason, it's always nice to get hit on here. The men are never sleazy about it.

    This place is epitome of above average. Looks Dark on the outside, surprises on the inside! Badass attitude with good looks to boot. Spent my 23rd bday here and they were super friendly about it!

    It's a chill little spot but I HIGHLY recommend to use cash only. They over charge you on credit. I got over charge $3 twice. Use cash or double check your bank statement.

    Throw back a spicy, chocolaty Mole Manhattan. Made with Carpano Antica, it’s excellent cocktail revisionism: Read more

    Sol is the best bartender in LA :) and there's a new patio! It's Highland Park at it's best. Divey but not too sceney and everyone is real sweet.

    On Tuesdays, La Cuevita offers free tacos and Sundays equal live jazz. DJs spin most nights of the week, so if you're looking for quiet, intimate conversation, it won't happen here. Read more

    Went for taco Tuesday- what's not to like? Nice drinks in the front, stiff wells in the back, & free tacos! For tacos they offer chicken, pork, and beef with the fixings

    Happy hour from 5 to 10, with really great cocktails for $5. Cool decor, and friendly staff. Eat at the Greyhound, and then wander over to La Cuevita.

    Not the cheapest drinks, and had trouble finding enough room for our group of 7 to hang out.

    Friendly, welcoming bartenders with a strong knowledge of tasty herbal liquors, like Becherovka, make your experience at The Little Cave unforgettable.

    Foursquare made me do it.

  • Diana M.

    In February of 2011 I got my purse stolen at the Little Cave. Bouncers were useless to help me stop the thief and so was the local police department. AVOID THIS BAR AT ALL COSTS.
