After a bit of bar hopping we stopped in for a drink. After the drink I was having water and the bouncer came over and said I had to leave. I knew I'd had a few, but I was sitting chatting with friends. I'd not interacted with anyone else in the bar. Apparently, when you fail to become a revenue source it's time to run you out. Not a place I want to visit again.

This is a great neigborhood bar situated right next to a couple of restaurants and right across the street from the Vault nightclub. It has a cheap happy hour with $4-5 dollar taps. There are old school table top video games to play while you drink and its alot bigger once you come inside. Also has a smoking patio which is nice.

Do you like Manhattans? Of course you do! they take their Manhattans seriously here. Make sure to order one while you are here, don't be afraid to order it up here either. Nice set up for a bar, always has something going on and can get full but never crowded. One of my favorite bars in Downtown LA and an LA staple.

5pm-8pm Wkday Happy Hour. Chill place that doesn't usually get to crazy. Think if you like 7 grand, this is another similar vibe but more relaxed with an arcade game.

one of my favorite bars in the city. very cool and calm crowd of friendly people. drinks are priced decently and the bartenders are very friendly considering what they have to deal with.

The gopher is walking distance from my gfs loft and we just wanted a simple night out to chat and have a sippy sip. Personally i found the bouncer took his job WAY to seriously...when he carded us he really looked at our id - it took 2 minutes each for him to calculate our birthdays! I mean i get it, your trying to prove your a worthy employee but he stopped us on our way to use the restroom and wanted to card us again? My gf kept walking because she didnt hear him and just went into the restroom, when she came back out the bouncer said he was gonna kick us out?! I mean ..huh?!?! it was a good thing we were on our way out regardless so it doesnt even matter ..but geeze...

Golden Gopher has a pretty solid happy hour (Mon-Fri 5-8). It gets crowded on the weekends and I almost never go during that time. Weeknights is really mellow and chill. Street parking can easily be found during weeknights. Good luck on weekends!
