5 Hangouts in Downtown Los Angeles


Currently undergoing a revival from down-and-out to trendy urban haven, downtown Los Angeles is packed with exciting bars and clubs that offer excellent drinks, easy atmospheres and good times all around. However five of these fine establishments stand out as true hot spots, unique venues surrounded in buzz and serving up handcrafted cocktails, hard-to-find liquors, live music and more. La Cita is a dance-friendly hangout with a shaded back patio that is perfect for both evenings and afternoons, while Las Perlas is a straight-up tequila joint serving flights of the finest Mezcal. Those searching for a neighborhood watering hole should head to Spring Street Bar, a casual spot with a broad selection of domestic brews. Like a neo-tribal saloon from a dystopian future, Villains Tavern offers signature cocktails in a steampunk environment, while whiskey bar Seven Grand and its "International Wall of Whiskey" provide a lounge-like urban hunting lodge for hipsters and those who love them. No matter which one of these exciting downtown Los Angeles hotspots you head for on a your next night out, rest assured that the scene will be set, the crowd will be on point and the cocktails will be worth every penny.
