What is the best bar in Los Angeles? This is a question that has plagued academics for literally thousands of years. Here at TravelClast though we are willing to do the hard research to get you answers. So may we offer three unique places we like to throw back a cold one.
First off is Adults Only which for us wins as the world’s finest speakeasy. Located in a very sad little strip mall off Sunset, it is a fully functional VHS rental shop (yep, VHS) in the front, but if you are brave enough to venture past the “adults only” section in the back you are welcomed to a beautifully appointed, spacious palace to booze. Pool tables, zinc bars, and velvet lined sofas will get you intoxicated off the opulence.
Address: 7065 1/2 Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90028
Next up is Jones, a long time favorite of ours located on Sunset Blvd. We love Jones because its so LA by not being LA at all. Crowded, but not packed, a scene but you can always get in, it’s got everything that is cool about NY but beautiful about LA. The food here is red sauce delicious, but the real treat are the martini’s, which come with the shaker, giving you basically two drinks for the price of one. Outstanding.
Address: 7205 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90046
Last little treasure is Mama Loves You at Mama’s Shelter on Selma Ave in a quiet little Hollywood adjacent neighborhood. This hotel is cool on it’s own, but if you venture up to the roof, you will be greeted to perhaps the greatest roof bar in LA. Fantastic views, lounge beds, foosball, and rose for days, this local spot is a perfect place to suck in some rays as you suck down Tanqueray.
Address: 6500 Selma Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90028
