LA Bars Overview

Basement Tavern - Speakeasy in LA

While it’s a stereotype to suggest LA citizens are all actors with tons of free time on their hands, bars in Los Angeles make it easy to get a drink at practically any time of day, and vary from barebones drinking dens to some of the most exclusive watering holes in the country.

Whether it’s high-powered producers at sceney Beverly Hills and Sunset Strip bars with reservation-only policies (and the steep price tags that come with them) to gritty dives blocks down from glitzy spots in Hollywood, there are Los Angeles bars for every taste.

Nightlife options stretch from the ocean to Downtown, and the streets are jam-packed with cocktail dens, hidden speakeasies, Irish joints, and lazy beach bars. Silver Lake, Echo Park, and Los Feliz have exploded onto the mixology and craft beer scene in recent years, while the ongoing revival of Downtown has attracted exclusive new rooftop bars, sophisticated wine bars, beer gardens, and a host of cool underground cocktail joints.

Meanwhile, beach bums, yuppies, and trust-funders congregate down by the water in Santa Monica, Venice, and Malibu, where a laid-back, anything-goes attitude prevails and the bars that go with them makes every day feel like a weekend.

It would take a lifetime to explore all the bars in LA, but luckily Party Earth makes it easy to find the LA bar that’s best for you.
