  • Reservations Accepted
Got a long layover? Long enough to, say, leave the airport? Well, then, head over to the LAX-adjacent Proud Bird, whose aviation-themed décor will have you thinking that you’re getting drunk on your airplane when really, you’re sitting in a restaurant. Once past the wall-to-wall galleries of photos and memorabilia inside, you soon find yourself drowning in buckets of well scotch for $3.75 a drink (forget drink umbrellas — these pours require diving boards), or knocking back a Guinness at $4 a pop. Not bad for a quick stopover.
