From the outside, the Golden Gopher looks like a dive - one where long-time alkies would be slumped over the bar with a strong whisky on the rocks. But, looks can be deceiving. Inside, the Golden Gopher is a luxurious lounge with dangling glass chandeliers, plush wraparound couches and gold-adorned gopher lamps. A relaxed and classy atmosphere attracts a diverse crowd ranging from USC frat boys to hipster artists to the business crowd. A smoking patio with a view of the skyline is inviting and old-fashioned video games (Ms. Pacman, Centipide and Asteroids) offer guests a break from drinking.
