    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.

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

    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

    Pinball! Lots of pinball! And a Texas brewed hard cider selection that does not disappoint .

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

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

    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.

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

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