Bars & Clubs in Central LA, CA

Good Luck Bar

Good Luck Bar

Los Angeles, CA

Sometimes a bar just can't shake those divey vibes no matter how much it dresses itself up - kind of like a farmer in a tuxedo. The Good Luck bar is loved and misunderstood by many, but it remains a solid neighborhood bar. It's a great place to go for a drink after catching a movie at the Vista around the corner. The tropical cocktails pack a boozy punch. The decor makes you feel like you're in a bad 70's film, but the staff is friendly, and the mood is low key. Snag a booth if you can.

One of the first LA bars to master the steampunk vintage look, this back-alley hideaway is a hit for mellow after-work drinks and livens up later in the night.

They have an awesome deal from 5-9pm. They have 2 jukeboxes packed with fantastic old jazz. It's a dive bar smack in the middle of Koreatown. You have to check it out.
