Whether or not that's true, there's no question that their bar scene in quite popping. Here are their ten best watering holes.

10. Ugo Wine Bar

The dimmed lighting, lit candles, Italian food and plethora of vino make the Ugo Wine Bar a perfect date spot. The service is friendly, helpful and extremely knowledgeable about wine. No snobby service here! The mellow atmosphere is a pleasant change from the typical hectic bar scene. Of course good wine is always expensive, so plan accordingly! 3865 Cardiff Ave. Culver City, CA 90232; 310-204-5645

9. Bigfoot Lodge West

Located on the outskirts of Culver City, Bigfoot Lodge West lives between a video game store and an old bakery on Venice Blvd. The decor looks as if the Country Bear Jamboree built it. They're known for having an impressive whiskey menu, and have a mean, mean Manhattan. (Their mixology sister bars, Oldfield's, Bigfoot Lodge, and Thirsty Crow, are also boss.) During happy hour, drinks are only $5. 10939 Venice Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90032; 310-287-2200

8. Father's Office

Father's Office has an extensive beer selection and their delicious Office Burger. The restaurant/bar is a perfect setting for groups, as the booths are big and the bar is massive. Although expensive, make sure to ask about the beers that are not on the menu. They're worth it. 3229 Helms Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90034; 310-736-2224
