Harvard & Stone has an industrial den feel and live music attracts a wide variety of patrons. The drink menu includes the usual choices but also adds twists like the ‘Summer Old Fashioned,’ which includes coffee extract. The live performances feature DJs, bands, and even burlesque shows.

Tiki-Ti Cocktail Lounge

Bar, American

The family-owned Tiki-Ti Bar on Sunset Boulevard offers an alternative experience to the typical night out in Los Angeles. This famous, tropical Los Angeles bar offers an assortment of fun drinks, from ‘Dr. Funk’ to ‘Ray’s Mistake.’ The vibe is quirky and energetic, with a family feel. For a drink with a kick and a unique bit of Los Angeles history, stop by Tiki-Ti Wednesday through Saturday.


Bar, Restaurant, Mediterranean

Although Spitz is known for its kebabs and wraps, this Middle Eastern–inspired food joint includes a bar at its Los Feliz location on Hillhurst Avenue. The bar has a great selection of beers on tap, cocktails, wine, and sangria. As an added bonus for Sinatra fans, some of the wood paneling on the interior was reclaimed from Frank Sinatra’s home. Try the Street Cart Döner wrap with falafel paired with the house sangria.

The Dresden

The lounge area is an excellent place to catch live jazz music and enjoy a few drinks. For a stiff drink, try the ‘Blood and Sand,’ blended in a martini glass.

Ye Rustic Inn

Bar, American

Ye Rustic Inn is an essential stop for dive bar lovers. Located on Hillhurst Avenue, Ye Rustic Inn is a gritty bar with plenty of character. Don’t be fooled: this is not the typical sports bar, despite the famous wings and other greasy bar food. Complete with a jukebox and full bar menu, Ye Rustic Inn is perfect for a less formal night out. The homey bar also hosts live music, karaoke, bingo, and trivia. Stop by and try the Hot Toddy (bourbon, hot water, lemon, and honey) if you’re feeling cold.

Drawing Room

Bar, American

Looking to avoid the usual fancy, overpriced bars of the Westside? Try the Drawing Room. This neighborhood favorite encourages the day drinker in you, open from 6am to 2pm everyday. The friendly staff and classic jukebox are sure to satisfy the crowds. Try the classic bloody Mary.

Hyperion Tavern

Bar, American

This Asian-inspired bar is a great find. The awesome staff and quirky vibe make for a great dive bar and lounge. The adventurous should try the Scholar, a rum-based cocktail served out of a cup shaped like an angry man’s head. This potent potion certainly packs a punch.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
