Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
We’re just going to say it: There’s a certain stigma attached to Silver Lake bars, and it involves mustachioed patrons and whiskey. Truth is, while there are plenty of whiskey bars to be found in this neighborhood, there’s so much more to consider: a quiet wine bar, an eclectic tiki bar, a boisterous beer hall. Trendy “dive bars” abound, but you’ll also find a gorgeous outdoor patio serving craft cocktails and a lively gay bar with lip synching competitions. So cheers to Silver Lake for being as exciting as L.A. itself—and for keeping us hydrated every night of the week.
