Jan 7, 2013 —  2012 was a banner year for LA bars. Culver City continued its massive growth spurt, Third Street became one of the trendiest spots in town, West Hollywood and Hollywood continued to pop, and Downtown provided impresarios with cheap rents for cocktail den experimentation.

Now that the year is over, we thought we'd look back and give you our Top 10 list of LA bars, from old standbys that refuse to quit, to new standouts that are certain to stay. So without further ado, here's our best of the best for 2012!

What are your favorite LA bars from 2012?

I recently went to Harvard & Stone and will definitely be going back. The fact that Harvard & Stone is on the list makes me want to visit all the other venues.
