Fancy $20 cocktails and newfangled mixologists have their utility in the world.

But when it comes to a no-frills gimlet or a straight whiskey on the rocks, the place to go is the humble dive bar. You know the kind -- where the drinks are stiff, the waiters are salty, and the regulars all look like characters from a Charles Bukowski novel.

Call us at  866-893-5722 to tell us about your favorite dive in Los Angeles County and beyond!
