Hit up this classic diner for Red Dog-absorbing classics like T-bone steak, spaghetti & meatballs, and Southern-fried chicken, all in a space that hasn't closed since 1924 (insert hilarious slutty Dorothy Parker reference).
Formerly an ultra-exclusive, members-only mixology center, the Doheny's been transformed into an egalitarian rum bar, with a $20 annual membership fee, a re-designed, more-colorfully decorated white & blue interior w/ antique bird cages as lighting fixtures.
If you're hungry try the Parmesan truffle tots, and if you're thirsty try the "Mexican Medicine", which is a blend of Mezcal, scotch, ginger, and honey.
Expanding on the rampaging success of its Culver City brother, the new BottleRock works the same concept (huge wine selection available retail to-go, or to drink in-house) in a 4x-larger space decked with floor-to-ceiling wood wine shelves, tree trunk tables, a granite bar, and countertops made from recycled wine & beer bottles, and boasts a small-plates menu that dwarfs than the original's, despite the stuff being so small.
Garlic butter edamame to start and a whole mess of sushi to finish, Octopus Japanese is serving up some of the freshest in the business.
At Salvage Bar & Lounge, you can watch all the sports you could want and drink some mighty fine drinks, like their Bourbon Cooler or the Farmhouse. This is definitely a spot to keep on your to-do list.
Check out this Downtown LA spot for all your wing needs.
