Where To Drink In Los Angeles
Where To Drink
Every part of town in Los Angeles has quality bars - some upscale cocktail bars, some local favorite hole-in-the-walls, some cozy wine bars - no matter what your choice, L.A., has it all.
Tower Bar | Cocktails | West Hollywood
The famed Tower Bar at the Sunset Tower Hotel is a classic favorite among the elite and A-listers of Los Angeles. Administered by maitre d' Dimitri Dimitrov, the Tower Bar features an intimate room with dim, rose-colored lighting and even an outdoor seating with private, pool-side cabanas for a casual brunch.
Perch | Full Bar | Downtown L.A.
It is hard to decide what people love more at this French inspired rooftop bar - the uniquely concocted cocktails or the splendid views of Downtown Los Angeles below. Either way, a visit to this beautiful bar is warranted.
The Bazaar by José Andrés | Tapas Bar | Beverly Hills
James Beard Award Winning Chef José Andrés delivers beautifully crafted cocktails and traditional Spanish flavors in an opulent, ornate setting at The Bazaar at SLS Beverly Hills. Stop by this tastefully created space to enjoy some smoking cocktails - literally, like Smoke on the Water that combines blackberries, atomized scotch, Islay mist with a ‘flaming’ twist.
Bar Nineteen12 | Cocktails | Beverly Hills
Located at the historic Beverly Hills Hotel, Bar Nineteen12 offers a wonderful view of the California sunset from a terrace overlooking the pool and the palms. The bar is named after the year that the hotel was opened. The hotel which been a Hollywood favorite for years now, is located on Sunset Boulevard in the heart of Beverly Hills, and is a relaxing oasis nestled in the middle of 12 acres of lush, beautiful greenery.
Covell | Wine Bar | Hollywood
“150 wines by the glass: no wine list”, reads the Covell website. That’s right, there is no wine menu - you just tell the bartender your preferences and answer a few questions that start with wine or beer. A few samples later, you will be sipping some of the best, offbeat wines you’ve tasted and like the website suggests, “food to complement”.
The Roof on Wilshire| Full Bar | West Hollywood
Dine and drink under the stars at the the rooftop pool lounge The Roof on Wilshire. Crafted cocktails served in private cabanas next to the pool that offers one of the best city views in Los Angeles make for a beautiful evening.
The Club Bar at The Peninsula | Cocktails | Beverly Hills
A preferred bar by the Los Angeles elite, the club bar is unassuming but the high-end cocktails and good wines will impress. Cozy up with a drink in a leather chair by the fireplace in this warm lounge if you’re not part of the party-all-night crowd.
Tiki Ti | Tiki Bar | Sunset Blvd
This local favorite, friendly, family owned dive bar just has 12 stools and a few tables against a wall, but it has an extensive menu with colorful cocktails (94 of them!) featuring favorites like Bayanihan and Ray’s Mistake. Dressed up in tikis and tropical decor this place is very retro and can be crowded, but has the best tropical cocktails in town!
Mohawk Bend | Gastropub | Echo Park
If you’re a beer lover looking for California craft beers and enjoy good bites made from locally sourced ingredients, some of which are also vegan friendly, then you’ve found your L.A. favorite bar that also comes with a patio!
