Dive Bars in Los Angeles

The mention of Tinseltown may not exactly conjure images of little gritty bars serving up cold, cheap beer to non-celebrity folks, but let it never be said that Los Angeles is a land without plenty of beloved dive bars. Typically defined by a ramshackle appearance, a dated sign with letters missing and a lack of windows, dive bars are among of the most cherished places to find laid-back vibes and a crowd that asks little to nothing of their fellow patrons. The greatest myth about dive bars is that they are patronized only by members of the working class; really, every dive bar contains a thriving mix of people, from college students seeking cheap beer to artists seeking inspiration, from blue-collars seeking happy-hour respite to white-collars seeking a Cheers-like atmosphere. In the glamorous chaos of Los Angeles, these little hideouts are the perfect places to find everything from stiff drinks to good friends to dart boards.
