Where to Drink in Atwater Village


55 Degree Wine

3111 Glendale Blvd Ste 2, Los Angeles, CA 90039

Check your pretense at the door. This chill wine store and bar features laidback tastings in an underground cellar. It's the kind of place where you can order a cheese plate or Crispy Crust pizza with your flight of vino.


Roost

3100 Los Feliz Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90039

Atwater's go-to dive bar features wood-paneled walls, cracked red vinyl booths and free sacks of popcorn salty enough to inspire another round of stiff, cheap cocktails. Leave your plastic at home--it's cash only.


Bigfoot Lodge

3172 Los Feliz Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90039

Because sometimes you're just in the mood to sip a Girl Scout Cookie cocktail under the gaze of Smokey the Bear in a ?log cabin.? Yeah.


Griffin

3000 Los Feliz Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90039

Stepping into this dark, cavernous lounge feels a little bit like entering a sultry dungeon, thanks to the fire pits, brick arches and medieval accoutrements. While it can get loud, the vibe stays pretty mellow. Besides, they serve tater tots.


Tam O'Shanter

2980 Los Feliz Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90039

Contrary to popular belief, this old-school spot isn't just about prime rib dinners. The Scottish pub may be the ?Tam's? best kept secret--along with the all-day sandwich bar.
