Arts District Bars & Nightlife
Arts District Brewing Co.
828 Traction Ave., Arts District
In a lofty warehouse with games and high-top seating, Arts District Brewing has a ton of taps and a solid food menu. They have a speakeasy-style cocktail bar behind the brewery, too. It's a good option for big groups without much fuss.
707 E. 4th Pl., Arts District
EightyTwo is a bar, but the drinks are more like a bonus here. The real draw: one room full of quarter-operated classic video games and another dedicated to the great game of pinball. Rotating food trucks make regular stops in the back courtyard, so you can take a break in the middle of a Pac-Man tournament.
1855 Industrial St., Arts District
The authenticity of this Belgium beer bar runs so thick it makes us feel as though we're grabbing a pint in Brussels rather than DTLA.
