These places are cool enough to be worthy of your presence, but don't require you to look like you're about to go clubbing. They're great for meeting your coworkers or clients after work and have great happy hour deals.
Lounges and restaurant hybrid that's perfect for events. Great happy hour menu that won't totally tape you wallet.
They offer coffee so good that you'll consider becoming one of those coffee snobs. Easy culver city parking too if you needed another reason to go.
Swanky drinks and speedy service that will make sure you won't miss the artsy movie you'll be seeing next door.
It's right by my house and a great spot to meet my friends after work or a day of shopping at the Beverly Center just a few blocks down. I'd actually go here by myself just for the fries.
Laid back and fun bar. They even have Jenga and Connect Four which is 10 times more fun after some tequila.
