The Library Bar

Los Angeles

The Library is Downtown's scholastically-themed hangout featuring tufted leather couches, exposed brick walls donning various taxidermy, and an entire wall lined with (you guessed it) weathered, obviously vintage books. The bookish hangout is known for its literary referencing classic cocktails (like On the Road and The Odyssey), its craft beer selection, and its unpretentious atmosphere. Don’t let the whole book thing fool you; there are often burgers, ordered from a chalkboard on the wall, flying out of the kitchen. And much like a library full of books of different genres, the menu is home to dishes with global influence -- like edamame hummus, tuna poke, chorizo sliders, a grilled cheese sandwich, and fries (also, parmesan-garlic fries, and also, that burger).
