When it comes to destinations that are unique and quirky, Los Angeles might not be at the top of your list. But considering how large it is, it’s no surprise that there are hidden pockets of the city with out-of-the-ordinary attractions. There are some bizarre LA spots that are perfect for locals and tourists alike, no matter what type of activity you’re interested in — you just have to know where to look.
‘There’s beer in the fridge.’ Well, actually, there’s quite a lot more in the fridge here. You enter this themed bar through a vintage refrigerator in a garage sale set up in Hollywood. Inside, you’re surrounded by 70s decor, kitsch and memorabilia, complete with a faux lawn out back and a trailer serving spiked slushies. Arrive before 8pm on weekdays (or 6pm on weekends) to beat the crowd and get a drink in for happy hour.

Although you can’t see these Hollywood stars in the flesh, view the final resting places for stars like Mickey Rooney, Darla Hood, Charlie Chaplin, Jr., Estelle Getty, Toto (from The Wizard of Oz) and more in this famous cemetery. While it’s not open after regular business hours, film screenings do happen here during the summer months as part of Cinespia’s movie events.
