    New Hollywood meets Old Hollywood. A beautiful, classy bar with excellent bartenders. Try the Fernet Egg Cream.

    There's only 2 lanes in this hipstery third-story bar overlooking Hollywood Boulevard and it's not for the faint of wallet. But the steampunk flavor of these intimate lanes has an undeniable magic. Read more

    The Spare Room is like a grandfather's parlor tucked inside The Roosevelt. It has a number of board games that can be played with decreasing accuracy as you imbibe craft cocktails. Read more

    Most people don't believe it when they hear about the bowling alley or bar-top board games. Get an arms worth of swing with unusual cocktails and classic liquors, including Czech classic, Becherovka.

    It may have been the crowd, it may have been the DJ, it may have been the light drizzle on the windows overlooking the bowling alleys ... but this is one of the chillest spots in LA.

    If you're with a group of four or more, order up a cocktail punch ($60 for punch for 4-6 people). Best enjoyed over a board game or while bowling.

    Don't worry about throwing a bowling ball out the window that's by the lane. Those windows are bulletproof.

    Go bowling! A lane is $100/hr but you can get six people per lane witch isn't that bad split up.
