Past the pupusa and hot dog street stands sits a black box of a bar, with a blazing red "cocktails" sign as its only marker. Enter beyond the big guy at the door, into a scene from Dazed & Confused—clearly, management hasn't updated the grungy aesthetic in forever, but this retro, hipster hangout is most known for its popular, disco ball-bedecked dance room. Depending on the night, you’ll find '70s-era disco to New Age pop. Either way, this is the neighborhood spot for cheap drinks; you're most likely to pound back your standard brews (Bud, Coors), but there are also local, craft brews like Bear Republic Brewing's Racer 5 and made-in-LA Revolution from Eagle Rock Brewery.

The Short Stop is like two bars in one: it can be an entirely different scene when the Dodgers are in town, versus when they're away or it's the off season. Either way, if you're barhopping through Echo Park, you need to stop at The Short Stop for a drink and to see if the dance floor is getting fun (or start the party yourself).
