Jun 2, 2012 —  There’s no shortage of the models and bottles scene in Los Angeles, but that doesn’t mean everybody has to cough up a Double Magnum of Dom on their first date, even if it is with a model...We tried. Super hard on the throat.

Glitz and glamour can be grand, don’t get us wrong, so if you’re looking to drop mad coin on your quest to impress a new guy or girl, we’ve got plenty of options for you too.

But before you become a famous actor or that screenplay of yours wins the Best Picture AcadEmmy Award (that’s an Oscar AND an Emmy at once, it was THAT good!), maybe you should look at this little roundup of a few Los Angeles bars and other cool LA venues that promise a good time without totally defiling your bank account.

I love strolling along the Venice canals and then trekking up to Main Street in Santa Monica for a burger and beer at Library Alehouse.

If you go to La Poubelle, you should also hit up UCB Theater which is right next door. They have some of the best comedy shows I've ever seen (particularly the improv musical show) and it's only $5 dollars per ticket! Best part - it's BYOB (just make sure to keep it discreet) which makes the shows seem that much funnier.

Driving Mulholland from end to end and stopping at all the scenic overlooks. Bring a picnic basket and some wine for when you end up at the ocean.

Can't forget the 500 Days of Summer bench in downtown LA!!
