"If Jimi Hendrix and Jack the Ripper had opened a bar in the Haight in the 1860’s, this is what it would look like"
The new age hipsters + barn party. Love that there's a live band.
Great cocktails and a wide selection of beers on tap. Plenty of seating outside for larger groups. Come here for live music, it's usually pretty great with no cover.
Kind of a medieval circus tent vibe. Huge gothic cathedral decor over the bar. Live music, great drinks, and a very cool crowd.
The unpretentious vibe at Villain's Tavern is pretty kick ass. The staff is all very friendly, personable and really know their alcohol.
Grab a HANZO it's delicious.
There are 3 bars one up front one by the stage and a mini one out back in the smoking section.
Awesome very hidden speakeasy cocktail bar. Decor is awesome. Drinks yummy. Drop by if u find it!!
Seasonal cocktails with a great atmosphere
Live band and very relaxed atmosphere. Drinks ate pretty good. Reminds me of a New York speak easy.
Lugar acogedor y súper distinto en LA. Buenos tragos...
Easy, inexpensive parking. Great drinks. Great atmosphere. Downside? Drinks are expensive compared to other downtown bars ($12 and up).
Um, yeah. I'm gonna need to go here again, if only just to devour another delectable grilled cheese with tomato and avocado. DELICIOUS.
GREAT place. GREAT música.
Steampunk / Goth Decor
I dig this place, sometimes the line can be a little nuts. they also have great live drinking music.
Check out the great live music (blues, rockabilly etc.) in the intimate "backyard" venue. There's a second smaller bar in this area.
Go see Brother Yusef on Wednesdays. He is an amazing blues singer!
The lovechild of a beer garden, a southern speakeasy, and a parking lot, this little gem is made for the eclectic, the outgoing, and the daredevils of classic herbal liquors like Becherovka.
This bar is a stone's throw from Skid Row. The crowd, music, and vibe feels like Brooklyn and I like it. But they don't make negronis and I quickly realize I'm in LA and order a rye-whatever instead.
came here on a saturday night and sat outside, enjoyed the live music and catching up with friends (it was great that we could actually hear each other!) free parking and creative mixed drinks
Feels a little dirty. Maybe just not my 'hipster' scene. Enjoy.
Make sure to order the Penicillin if you like scotch bases cocktails.
Can be crowded on a Saturday night but the venue is oh-so worth it. The Ilium cocktail is a personal favorite and the fries, they are to. die. for. (Muahahahaha )
Lunch Beers starts at 2pm!!! Happy Hour all day / 50% off food until 7:30pm. Tap Takeover from Blackmarket Brewery in San Diego! Amazing Speciality Beers all week...Live Soul and Blues DJs all day
I really dig the walls and overall atmosphere here, the backdrop for live bands makes you feel like you're in the middle of no where. The Shot/Beer deal is awesome and upgradable too!
Check out the LA hootenanny
Corn on the cob! And if your worried about the authenticity of their Mexican dishes, don't be worried at all! Ceviche was some of the best I've had. Chef is definitely Mexican.
Amazing drinks and a great vibe. Ask Lauren the blonde bartender to surprise you with one of her mixed drinks and you won't be disappointed. I will be coming back.
Totes hipsters. I did have fun. However, to pay $15 for a Moscow Mule, I'd like to see cuter hair n both men and women. Best thing about this bar: the awesome mirror piece above the bar!
Zero attitude, live music every night, and creative cocktails served in mason jars. If you want to escape the scene in West LA, this is a great bar to go to.
Place can get crowded, but a shot of great bourbon and a nice craft beer should help you.
Awesome drinks, atmosphere, and they have live music every night. Rodney rules! Excellent bartender. Check this place out.
Call ahead and reserve a table. Or sit at a "reserved" table and hope you don't get bumped.
Beers and live bands. Best place ever! - Matthew Herrick, DTLA - The Series
Really cool motif. Drinks are expertly crafted and delightfully aromatic. Live music. Open space. Pretty awesome
Get the Lillium!
Get the fries!!!!! So good!!!!
Pirate bar. What else do I need to say?
great venue, good drinks & food. reminded me of austin quite a bit
Live music, cool people, strong yet imaginative drinks, and amazing food (try the carne asada tacos)! The bar is reminiscent of a 1940's big tent circus and everything has a vintage feel. —Yasmine
no contest - best place to see bands in LA. Got a great Austin vibe
The bartenders are on their stuff!
Wrap around bar makes it easy to find a drink. And they have Stone Brewery's Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale on tap (10/10!)
If ur looking to save $. Opt for the punch bowl special. They've got 3 signature cocktails from the menu at the cash bar.
Try and get down here for a Rockabilly good time with The Americans on stage in the patio
Parking is $5 now...fuck that, park a block a way for free ;)
a fav: it feels like two bars in one: in the back, a speakeasy; the front and outside – a place to kick back with beers
Dane is awesome
