A punk rock pirate dive bar that is surprisingly warm and inviting, Redwood Bar and Grill is a downtown Los Angeles favorite. With live music every night, exceptional pub grub and an edgy and fun atmosphere, a night at the Redwood is like hanging out in a dark and cozy captain’s den. Known as simply “The Pirate Bar” to many LA locals, this casual establishment is a hipster hangout that holds to a pirate ship theme with plenty of skulls and crossbones, nautical art and barrel ends for tables. Open since the 1920s, the Redwood is a bar with character and flair, and a smart choice for a random night of fun. Many come for the live punk and rock music acts that take place every night on the tiny back stage, while others head to the Redwood for happy hour specials or late night grub. Guests rave about the “pirate fare” on offer at this bar: sweet potato fries, spicy burgers, chicken wings and macaroni and cheese top the list. With funny bartenders, low cover charges (usually $5-10) and a decent selection of draft beers, the Redwood Bar and Grill is a low-key downtown destination made for drinking, rocking and pirate shenanigans.
