Best of L.A. -- Bars and Clubs

Bars & Clubs

Best Juke Box Los Angeles 2012 

Drawing Room

Owning your own jukebox rather than renting it clearly has its benefits, as supreme dive bar and venerable Los Feliz hangout Drawing Room can attest. In addition to the bar staff's in-depth knowledge of local punk rock and general L.A. music history, patrons have brought in their own mixes for the bar's decades-old CD slinger. Each of the mixes, like your best mixtapes of yore, has the offbeat tracks that demonstrate a real love of digging for great music and barroom staples done live or as covers. The themed mixes range from classic hip-hop to '80s punk to old soul; there's even one with Sharon Jones' cover of "Wild Horses," which is really all one needs to go with one's beer. 1800 Hillhurst Ave., Los Feliz. (323) 665-0135 (no website).
