Naturally enough, LA's best nautical-themed bar sits fully 15 miles from the water. Located in Koreatown, this agreeably egalitarian bar is famed for the warmth of its welcome and the cheapness of its drinks, characteristics that are embraced by everyone from visiting rockers to residents of the Gaylord apartment hotel directly above the taproom. Saddle up to the bar or stake out a red leather booth where well-seasoned waitresses serve up dishes—don't miss the Famous Baseball steak—from a traditional American menu.

If you're looking for a solid dive bar, look no further.  Effortlessly cool without adhering to what's "trending," it's housed in the Gaylord apartment building in the heart of K-Town on Wilshire.  Simple cocktails, steak and pub food, meet here with a party big or small to start your evening or end it--or heck, just spend the entire evening here.

The HMS Bounty is the former watering hole for celebs like Jack Webb and Randolph Hearst.   Great jukebox, reasonably priced food, and a mixed crowd of old jazz musicians, young hipsters, and old barflies provide the right ambience.  Bar stools and red booths in the front and a back room for birthday and celebrations.  What's not to like?
