With so many "speakeasies" these days, one often longs for a good ol' fashioned dive, along with its cheap drinks and unpretentious environment. What makes La Cita unique is its personality: Every night of the week the bar has a different theme, from mustache Mondays to thirsty Thursdays to the "angry hour on Fridays." Oh, and don't forget reggae love night on Sundays. 336 S Hill St.; 213- 687-7111

The drinks are more than just clever names, however, they're crisp and strong, making this spot genuinely "buzzworthy."100 W 9th St.; 213-627-7774
