I was visiting the Los Angeles area for the first time this past week and figured I had to at least experience Hollywood. As my cousin & I were walking past the Mann's Chinese Theater he says ""Yeah, Hollywood is a cool experience, but it's just tourist trap. There are no good bars in this area of town."". Au contraire! I am a huge dive bar fan, and even this one in the middle of tourist hell lives up to the hype it's getting on this site. No beer on tap except the glorious headache-inducing nectar of the gods, Pabst's Blue Ribbon. Stiff cocktails as well. I highly recommend this joint...
Pros: cheap drinks, PBR, decent jukebox
Cons: it's in Hollywood, it was a tad too dark
