Founded in 1920, the original Beanery (there are now offshoots in Pasadena, Westwood, Burbank and Santa Monica) remains a landmark thanks to its loud and loose vibe and super-gigantic menu (including their famous, self-proclaimed "2nd Best Chili in LA"). Colorful booths, loud rock (heavy on the classic stuff), pool tables, TVs with the must-see game of the moment and karaoke keep the Bean boppin late. The brewskie crowd can get pretty sloppy, especially in the adjacent bar and outdoor areas, perhaps inspired by boozer ghosts of Barney's past including Charles Bukowski, Jim Morrison and Janis Joplin, said to have boozed up here the night she died.
