CS LA Meet Up * Koreatown Dive Bar Hang Out

Organized by EdwardTravels
Regularly, we meet at a different bar to talk, drink, and get to know one another. For the next eight months, we'll be visiting some the great and classic dive bars that Los Angeles has to offer.

In January, we checked out the Frolic Room in Hollywood.
February, we visited Frank 'n Hanks, in Koreatown.
March, we tried two Los Feliz's dives (Ye Rustic Inn and the Drawing Room)
April saw a visit to downtown LA's the Golden Gopher (established 1905)
We went classic Hollywood with a trip to Boardner's in May.
And took over Hank's nestled in the lobby of a turn of the century hotel in downtown LA for June.

We will be hitting Koreatown in August, to visit an old school bar (and restaurant) that has survived decades of change (and even turned-down one of the reality tv series make-over shows), the H.M.S. Bounty in the former Gaylord Hotel (now, the Gaylord Apartments) on Wilshire, just a few blocks west of the Wilshire Vermont Metro Subway Stop. The Bounty is a Best of LA Weekly (2012) winner: http://www.laweekly.com/bestof/2012/award/best-bar-bathroom-1892343/, and a two time (2008, 2011) stop on the World Dive Bar Tour in what was formerly a very celebrity and infamy driven area (next door to the Brown Derby and across from the Ambassador Hotel -- now the most expensive public school ever built in the USA).
