Best Place to Tipple on the Cheap in Hollywood (2012)
Though it's usually best to avoid the madness of Hollywood altogether, if you must go, you'll at least want to avoid typical Hollywood drink prices. The solution? A pit stop at Dillon's Irish Pub. A restaurant and bar located on two floors, Dillon's has a pool table, bosomy bartenders in Catholic schoolgirl uniforms and an impressive variety of incredibly cheap beers. Of its 33 drafts, the vast majority are $3 all the time, including Guinness and Racer 5 pints. (Tallboys are $5.) You also can get well drinks for $5. If that doesn't convince you, the $1 oysters should. As an added bonus, it has a (typically affordable) valet, and it's near the Hollywood/Vine Red Line station, which makes the spot perfect for getting a drink or two before going on your merry way. 6263 Hollywood Blvd., Hlywd. (323) 315-9744, dillonsirishpub.com.
