Best Bars in Downtown LA

Downtown L.A. teems with a seemingly infinite number of bars and clubs. With bars ranging from your ideal rooftop dream date spot to a secret speakeasy with great live music, there’s certainly a watering hole for every type. Here are 5 to get you started on your nightlife tour of D.T.L.A.

1. Bacaro L.A.

A cozy wine bar nestled between DTLA and the University Park area, Bacaro is a great spot for mouthwatering tapas and drinks with a small group of friends. Do yourself a favor and get a sangria pitcher (or two), or if you decide to come here for their delicious brunch, spring for the $20 bottomless mimosas.


2. Perch

Perch is one of the most trendy restaurant bars in L.A. It’s anyone’s idyllic dream date spot, situated on a rooftop with an Instagram-worthy view of downtown. With great drinks, service, and an intimate ambience, with a few extra bucks you can take your evening from average to extraordinary.


3. The Varnish

The Varnish is a not-so-secret speakeasy hidden behind a restaurant in DTLA.  Great for craft cocktails and jazz music, this spot won’t disappoint if you’re looking to get a good buzz before your next stop.


4. Downtown Independent

This small independent theater in downtown has cheap concessions, drinks, and features entertainment ranging from obscure foreign films to free comedy acts. While certainly not your typical bar experience, a visit to the Downtown Independent can be a very cool and unexpected experience no matter what you go for.


5. Seven Grand

Seven Grand is a whiskey bar located above Mas Malo with great drinks and happy hour deals for anyone looking to get their whiskey-fix. With a few pool tables and a lively atmosphere, you can easily enjoy a relaxing night with a group of friends here.
