    A pretty mellow bar with a nice mix of people, a nice gender ratio, and liberal 21 and up crowd. Reward yourself with a Strongbow! This is a good place to start or end a night. Read more

    This Pepto-Bismol-pink-walled dive bar has the best bourbon selection in town—and a wall of pinball machines to boot. Read more

    It’s worth it to come here for the pinball. Granted, it’s harder to be a wizard after a few Poison Girl shots, but it’s not rocket science. Had enough shots? Go for The Jones: ginger beer and bourbon.

    Great Manhattans, excellent whisky selection, pinball, and a decent patio.

    Friendly bartenders, just know that it WILL be crowded on the weekend. Usually a pretty mixed-bag of folks out in the backyard.

    Tucked away in the middle of a small Montrose shopping center, Poison Girl has pinball machines, cheap Lone Star and good whiskey. Read more

    Bartenders are super knowledgeable in their american whiskey, ask for a bowl of goldfish and peanuts to drink it on the rocks.

    I love how they fail to mention that some of the beers on their cardboard lack alcohol... Oh and the redhead bartender is a douchebag.. use subtraction when tipping him on credit.

    Dive bar that's no longer a true dive but I still like the vibe. Frequented here during grad school days.

    Buy the tamales from the tamales man, yummm (or even better, get someone to buy them for you!)

    Drinks are pricey, but a definitive top ten 'in' place on the right night, which is usually Fridays.

    For any visiting/transplant LA-ians... its like a mix of cha cha lounge and drawing room, but with a patio.

    Try Angels Envy. One of their new bourbons with a port finish. Best bourbon on the market!

    God forbid you ask for change for the pinball machine. The bartenders are rude. Otherwise, I like cabbage patch dolls.

    Avoid this place like the plague on weekends if you hate crowds or hipsters, but be sure to stop by for the Poison Pen series.
