La Descarga is an amazing bar experience that may be a bit busy but well worth the exploration for those a fan of speakeasies and/or Latin-infused bar. Once you come in, you go up the stairs into a 'closet' and out into a two-floor bar area. Sometimes there will be flame-eating dancers; other times there will be a burlesque dancer and a mariachi band. It's just a really cool time. Drinks are fairly normal for the club/LA bar scene (expect prices +$8). Try to get on the guest list beforehand for an easier time getting in and come a little earlier. There is some street parking available as well.

We had a blast! From the very minute you walk in. It's certainly worth the wait for a reservation. Great music and very entertaining. The drinks are made with precision, craft and enough rum to give you just the right amount of pep in your step! Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. One of the best places to visit for tourist and if you are a "native" like myself, what a treat to have La Descarga in our own backyard. Diamond In The Rough".

I have traveled all over the world, and I can say without a doubt that La Descarga is one of the most exciting bars I have ever been to. It is a destination. Whenever I take someone there, I never tell them about it, because it would ruin all the wonderful surprises I experienced my first time - from how hidden it is to the entrance to the way above par cocktails and the band and Cuban style burlesque. Who would think that in L.A. a bartender would pay for your round of drinks simply as a thank you for coming back a 2nd time? Amazing.

I've been here once, and while it was kinda crowded and the drinks were pricey (and tasty) I still had a pretty good time. The burlesque style dancer was a nice suprise and the back and forth action between her and the sax man was very cool. I was definitely feeling the vibe and she noticed and came over to me and we started dancing. Being that I've danced, performed and taught salsa over the past 11 years, I must say that I killed it, my friends were blown away because they knew it was spontaneous, though I think everyone else believed that it was setup and I was part of the entertainment. I will definitely be going back here.
