Party Earth Review Between the faux-log cabin walls, the mounted buck heads, and the hipsters wearing flannel, Bigfoot West seems more like an indie hunting lodge than a hip bar serving high-end specialty cocktails. But that’s just what patrons will find once they step past the smoking patio out front and belly up to the square center bar ... more

Party Earth Review Possibly the wildest karaoke bar in LA, Caffé Brass Monkey is a magnet for rambunctious spotlight hoggers who love to get wasted and belt out 80s power ballads. Packed with scruffy artsy types and yuppies, this dimly-lit den with its low slanted ceiling, which evokes a cozy ski lodge atmosphere, features a layout that ensures ... more

The gang is heading over and the van cab is on its way. But what’s the game plan? Luckily, it’s not hard to come up with ideas for groups in Los Angeles.
A festive, booze-filled activity for any posse is a stop at one of the many karaoke haunts within the sprawling metropolis. At Backstage Bar & Grill in Culver City, the regulars cheer on even the worst of renditions. For a clique that wants to keep its vocal expressions within a trusted circle, there are private karaoke rooms at Soop Sok Music Studio in Koreatown.
Those seeking a dressier, lounge-like experience with a little friendly competition can head to Lucky Strike in Hollywood, which gives groups a chance to bowl in style under neon lights as techno beats roll through the speakers. For a crew that is looking to get really rowdy and possibly even a little randy, West Hollywood’s gay-hangout extraordinaire The Abbey has multiple bars, male go-go dancers, inside and outside seating, fire pits, and a ton of room for dancing.
When heading to the beach is too obvious an option, groups in Los Angeles can find plenty of other places where strength in numbers is welcome.
