5 Hangouts in Downtown Los Angeles:

#1 - La Cita

For those of you who love skankin' to the oldies, Punk Reggae Night was made for you. They spin the best in old school punk, reggae, and ska, and they spin vinyl only. So by nature of the materials, you won't be hearing any Green Day, Blink 182, or any other quasi-punk mess. Not here. It's all the Specials, Fishbone, and Madness here. There's also no standing on the dance floor in your heels and too-tight-to-dance dress, getting pissed off if an errant dancer causes you to spill a bit of your technicolor cocktail. Dress like you're going to a punk concert, have lots of beer money (for a lot of beer, of course), and throw on your rattiest sneakers, and get ready to skank your heart out! Every Friday

A fun hipster hangout with a mind-blowing build-your-own Bloody Mary bar on Sunday afternoon, La Cita in downtown Los Angeles is a dark dive bar and nightclub with a wide range of live music and movie events. Popular with students, artsy types and young Latinos, La Cita attracts a crowd that likes to party, no matter what the occasion happens to be. Chill out on the leafy back patio and take it easy, or hit the dance floor and get down to live music ranging from reggae and rockabilly to punk, salsa and electronic beats. Special events range from queer dance parties like Moustache Mondays to Dance Right's DJ fest on Thursday nights. Happy hour is always a blast at this downtown LA hotspot, whether you're there for the punk rock "Angry Hour," the reggae-fueled "Natty Hour," or the aforementioned Sunday afternoon party with Bloody Mary's.
