Los Globos Nightclub

Los Globos Nightclub

Los Angeles, CA

When you come to Los Globos, don't expect a sleep Hollywood club. It is still one of silverlake's best kept secrets and the music is getting better now that they've changed ownership.

Smog Cutter (The)

Smog Cutter (The)

Los Angeles, CA

The mother of all dives. Don't try to figure this place out, just let its magic take over you. Order two cheap beers with the friendly bartenders and watch the karaoke while the owner finagles with the clueless yuppies who wandered in. Once you get past that, the Smog Cutter becomes a fun, funky neighborhood bar. Cash only.

Los Angeles, CA

One of the best bars on the Eastside. Don't forget Wildlife Wednesdays for 90s hip hop and R&B!

Echo

Echo

Los Angeles, CA

Yes, this place is known for its indie music scene, but look at the listings closely to discover other fun acts. I caught a sock puppet theater troupe recreating an episode of Three's Company onstage recently. That was hilarious. The Echoplex downstairs hosts The Moth storytelling finals each month, too.

This is the gay bar east of WeHo. The crowd is more mellow, drinks are reasonably priced and reasonably strong. Usually a line outside on weekends.
