Known for its famous French dip, Cole's is in the heart of downtown, next to The Association. One of the oldest bars in the city, it occupies the ground floor of the original Pacific Electric building, and is home to the Varnish, a hidden, private bar of sorts, serving high-end classic cocktails. Cozy up on Cole's cushy red booths and order one of their many famed sandwiches and cold pints.
