12 more Bad Decision Bars in LA

Remember last year, when we ran a list of 13 bars in LA where you've definitely made a bad decision? Well, turns out this city has way more places for making bad decisions than even we realized. So we're back, just in time for bad decision-magnet "The Wednesday Before Thanksgiving", with 12 more spots where everyone seems to think it's okay to pee in a planter.

Sardo's

Burbank
Its most famous night of the week -- and the only reason anyone goes there -- is called "P*rn Star Karaoke" night. Read those last four words again.
 

Short Stop

Echo Park
Sure, it was cleaned up a few years ago. Doesn't mean that it's "clean". Just cleaned up.
 

Red Lion

Silverlake
"Hey, let's just drink a few enormous beers and eat a head-sized pretzel. What could possibly go wrong?"

Honeycut

Downtown
The drinks: strong. The music at the attached dance room: loud. The decisions: bad.
 

The Roost

Atwater Village
The good decision? The free popcorn. The bad? Everything else.
 

Tattle Tale Room

Culver City
So dimly lit that you're bound to screw some... thing up. So named because it probably won't stay a secret.

Backstage Bar

Culver City
You've heard about the casting couch, right? There's a reason this place is right by Sony.
 

Circle Bar

Santa Monica
Around, and around, and around, and around, and... eventually you're definitely gonna fall on your face.
 

Cabo Cantina

Various locations
For those moments when you're like, "I could go for the cheapest tequila ever, and also a ton of frat bros, and also low-cut waitress tees, and also..."

Jeff Miller

Smog Cutter

Silverlake
The first bad decision you're gonna make at one of the best dives in the country? Singing "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" at its run-down karaoke, and then having to answer to the regulars. The second bad decision? Everything that happens after that.
 

Lost & Found

Mar Vista
It opens at 6am. And people are there then.
 

Baja Sharkeez

Manhattan Beach
Bros + Babes + Beach + Beer + Beer + Beer + Beer + Beer + Beer + Beer = Regret x Breakfast Burrito.
