Located in the historic John A. Roebling warehouse in the Arts District, Angel City Brewery has become a leader in the California craft beer scene. Its signature beers range from staples like the Angel City IPA to limited-time brews and gems from the warehouse collection. You can toss 'em back in the art deco space or in one of the numerous restaurants and bars at which they're sold.
This Downtown LA club and live events venue features great drinks and entertaining shows in a festive nightclub-meets-Mayan-temple space.
Step into the log cabin-like interior of Bigfoot Lodge and escape into the wilderness of... Atwater Village. The roaring fireplace, tree stump tables, and hunting lodge decor will have you certain you’ve left Los Angeles (don’t worry, you haven’t). Bigfoot’s got live music, tallboys, and rustic-style cocktails that adhere to the campfire theme, like the Roasted Marshmallow with actual burnt marshmallow, and the Scout’s Honor with Irish cream liqueur. Once you've got your drink, cozy up to the fireplace and forget that you’re actually nowhere near the woods.
Opened in 1931, The Wiltern is a theater and concert hall that seats anywhere from 1,200 to 4,000 people depending on the show.
Syrup Lounge is one of Downtown's most coveted event spaces. Regularly hosting live music, shows, etc., it's airy and open, but quaint enough to feel cozy.
It's a zoo, you know the drill: chill with animals while kids run around screaming. But the LA Zoo hosts Roaring Nights with bands, food, and booze, and that automatically makes any zoo more awesome.
