You can sip an artisan cocktail next to a rooftop pool, slam a cold beer in a dive bar or savor a glass of wine with a view of the ocean. Head to a swanky hotel lounge to rub shoulders with the rich and famous, or party underground at an unmarked tavern. Hang out by the Westside beaches at an easygoing surf shack, or visit one of the Eastside's many dive bars for PBR specials and hipster-friendly fun. Relax at an intimate wine bistro, chill out at an Irish pub or spend a few hours at an outdoor beer garden in the sun.
