Every city has it's selection of dive bars. I guess you could classify it in that category. However, it's on a decent stretch of Hollywood Blvd. The place is tiny. It's clean inside. The service is good. It has been around forever and it has...More

Lots of history in this place! You also can't beat the amazing pricing on their drinks. Where else can you get a shot of Jameson and a Long Island for $14? The drinks are strong and the glasses are big! The music is decent as...More

This is actually the last authentic place left to drink on Hollywood Boulevard, a legendary speakeasy with neon and caricatures on the walls. With characters drinking elbow-to-elbow and the famous Panteges theater next door. Outside drug-addled teenagers and homeless wander down the street hobnobbing (OK,...More

Who used to drink at the Frolic Room in Hollywood? Who didn't?? From Frank Sinatra to Orson Welles, this bar has hosted more of Hollywood's stars than it can probably keep track of. The first thing you need to know is that Hollywood Boulevard as...More

A nice atmosphere, a kurt bartender and some old tunes make this place a gem which is stuck in between a bunch of trendy over priced tourist traps.

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night
