With its swanky furnishings and distinctive circular bar, the Broadway Bar is one of the more striking places to drink in downtown Los Angeles. Located in the theater district (and next door to the venerable Orpheum Theater), the bar is based in a classic Gothic Revival building, evoking the noirish elegance of the 1940s and 1950s, when downtown was still the center of L.A.'s nightlife. The Broadway Bar goes a long way toward restoring that nostalgic vibe, with ornate lamps and lavish wallpaper. The mezzanine and upstairs smoking balcony offer great views of the nightlife on Broadway, and the downstairs patio also is good for people watching. For all of the Broadway Bar's grandeur, the lighting is dark, adding an air of mystery that contrasts with the fancy decor. The bartenders proffer cocktail standbys like mojitos and caipirinhas alongside champagne favorites like mimosas and the Saint Germain. Resident DJs wax fantastic on weeknights. Street parking. Ages 21 & over.
