Fairfax/Beverly/La Brea/Third St.

The lucha libre theme at this lively spot goes well beyond mere motif: the Mexican-inspired decor is several thousand feet over the top. The healthy selection of tequilas and 25 different mescals together combine to create innumerable excuses for the inevitable morning-after hangover. The lauded El Perfecto margarita is a highlight.

This is a perfect spot for after-work/happy hour/pre-dinner/pre-movie drinks and snacks. The happy hour deals are good and the pours never get too weak. The decor is fun, the lighting is just right, the food is yummy and not too expensive. It's a great place to knock one back before a movie at the New Bev!
