4. Harold & Belle's 2920 W Jefferson Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90018

You can't get older-school Southern cooking (in an old-school Southern-style kitchen) than Harold & Belle's: it's been at it since 1969, making everything from meatloaf to catfish. The go-to is the creamy étouffée, though, like everything else there, it's made with a tried-and-true recipe passed down through generations.

5. Resident 428 S Hewitt St, Los Angeles, CA 90013 (Downtown)

This arty new DTLA venue space and cocktail bar hosts indie rock bands with a simple premise in mind: yes to DJs, food, friends, and partying; no to "covers, lines, reservations, dress codes, and bullsh*t."

6. Roger Room 370 N La Cienega Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90048 (Beverly Hills)

Since its opening in the early days of the speakeasy craze in LA, The Roger Room has retained all of its class and charm. Order up the Four Aces, a house favorite with vodka, basil, green grapes, and ginger liqueur, or the Japanese Maple with whiskey, egg whites, and maple syrup -- then settle into a booth beneath the hand-painted carnival mural and be prepared to stay awhile.

7. Lock & Key Social Drinkery 11033 Downey Ave, Downey, CA 90241

Lock & Key Social Drinkery (not to be confused with the LA speakeasy) serves up some surprising bar foods, such as crowd-pleasing chicken and waffle sliders. Bacon fanatics also fit in here by ordering the Manimal burger (that's bacon in the burger as well as on the burger). Check out their cocktails menu as well for surprising mixes like the PS I Love You (that's rum, lemon, and strawberry shrub).
