  • Mr. T

    Mr. T's Bowl

    5261 N. Figueroa Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90042
    323-256-7561

    http://mrtsbowl.tripod.com The bowling lanes may no longer be open at Mr. T's Bowl, but the longtime bar remains one of Highland Park's main live-music nightclubs. The place is still run by the family of its namesake founder, Joe Teresa, who opened Mr. T's Bowl in 1966 and died in 2004. The venue has undergone several distinct incarnations over the decades, evolving from a blue-collar bowling alley and neighborhood bar into the art-punk hipster hangout Fuzzyland in the early 1990s, before settling into its current role as a showcase for indie-rock bands from the northeast side of Los Angeles. The decor retains much of the club's original charm, with Christmas lights twinkling over the cluttered bar and vestiges of the old bowling lanes still visible behind the stage curtain. The main music room has a low stage, scattered tables and a wide area for dancing and mingling, while the bar is situated to the side in a nook with comfortable booths. Beck, Los Abandoned, the Breeders, 8-Bit, Backbiter, Saccharine Trust, Third Grade Teacher and Go Betty Go are among the many musicians who've played there, and Mr. T's currently alternates bookings of indie, pop and garage combos with burlesque nights. The affable soundman Arlo has been such a veteran fixture in the sound booth that a local band once named themselves after him. The full bar stills draws early-evening visits from the feisty 70-something barflies who've been coming here for years, before younger scenesters fill the place later at night. Mr. T's has its own parking lot, and patrons enter through the back entrance by the lot. Ages 21 & over. More >>

  • Mugs Away Saloon

    Mugs Away Saloon

    27324 Camino Capistrano Laguna Beach, CA 92677
    949-582-9716

    The first thing you might notice when walking into Mugs Away are pictures of naked women outside the patio that look like they were ripped from the pages of a 1980s Penthouse. Advertised below a teased blonde’s globular silicone breasts are the specials that make this place great, such as $8 happy-hour pitchers of Pabst Blue Ribbon and $2 all-you-can-eat pizza until it’s gone. The locals shooting pool have control of the jukebox and a penchant for 80s metal-- deal with it. The rusted-out frame of a bike that looks like it was pulled up by an unlucky fisherman is just one of the plethora of interior oddities, such as street signs containing unnecessary curse words. Over the years, it’s become a haven for any South County dive bar cover band with their salt and their spandex. Oh, and Mugs Away is infamous in Orange County for instigating that annual tradition involving hundreds of drunk people pulling down their pants and showing their asses to a nearby passing Amtrak train.

  • Muldoon

    Muldoon's Irish Pub

    202 Newport Center Drive Newport Beach, CA 92660
    949-640-4110

    http://www.muldoonspub.com The perfect fish-and-chips search ends here. Five pieces of fresh red snapper are piled atop skin-on shoestring fries made from real potatoes. The batter on the fish is golden and puffy, like fried cumulus clouds. And the Irish soda bread will make you a regular. More >>

  • The Music Center, Dorothy Chandler Pavilion

    The Music Center, Dorothy Chandler Pavilion

    135 N. Grand Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90012
    213-972-7211

    http://www.musiccenter.org Downtown L.A.'s sumptuous Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, home to the Los Angeles Opera, has aged more beautifully than most civic buildings from the 1960s. Its 3,197 seats — many of them good ones — are set in four tiers, and concert-goers reach the upper sections by gliding up enormous curving stairways that seem borrowed from a Golden Era movie. The former site of the Academy Awards, the Dorothy Chandler features a towering lobby with massive, pendant-style crystal chandeliers and upper-story picture windows that offer fine views of downtown. The interior is drenched in gold tones that some say make the dressed-up crowds look even more refined. A number of beautiful, spacious hallways and carpeted interior plazas are used as gathering spots by patrons who mill around with drinks during intermissions or after a performance — room-like spaces that double as pricey wedding venues. The Dorothy Chandler's grand entryway opens to a popular above-street-level outdoor plaza with a splashing fountain where, before the show, patrons eat take-out salads and cheese plates from the plaza's Spotlight Cafe. Others try for a table at the more formal Pinot Grill or, downstairs, Kendall's Brasserie and Bar. More >>
