    Nice place with friendly bartenders. It seems the uniform requires that they have their bras on show..somewhat at odds with the feel of the place. Also, note happy hour is only on weekdays

    by far the coolest new spot on Wilshire. Finally a place that has style. If you're looking for the wannabe nightclub spot in SM keep walking a few more steps, if you want something unique - walk in

    A funky, dimly lit piano bar with an American jazz-era feel. Check out their live music schedule so you can get in a little dance to alleviate the day's stress.
