Really, the whole city of Long Beach is one big secret that LA STILL doesn’t know about, but if you dig a little deeper you'll find that The International City has a bunch of really cool other secrets (like, for one, that the official motto of Long Beach is "The International City").
There's a hidden bar behind this phone booth
LA may have its share of ultra-hyped hidden bars, but our best one's a legit secret: walk into this 1930s phone booth, plucked from a gutted LA Memorial Coliseum, pick up the receiver, and tell the person on the other side the password you received via text when your reservation was confirmed. Go ahead, do it. It’s the only way to get into The Exhibition Room, a super-secret speakeasy in the back of a neighborhood bar in California Heights. Inside, there’s burlesque, live piano playing, delicious cocktails, and an actual art exhibition dedicated to boozy Long Beach history.
