Is Highland Park ever going to slow down? In the past few years, the Eastside nabe has morphed into one of L.A.'s most buzzed-about hoods, spurned by the proliferation of new cocktail bars, revamped music venues and coffee shops galore. When it comes to drinking around these parts, there's plenty of old standbys that are still around, dives with $3 beers and a killer jukebox. But there's also a new guard—cocktail lounges and polished drinking patios that sling pricey craft cocktails. Is there room for both? We think so. Check out our guide to the best Highland Park bars, then choose your own drinking adventure.
