The tiny purple room adjacent to the venerable El Chavo restaurant offers drink and appetizer specials (cheap tacos til midnight!) and an alternative to the sit-down food frenzy next door. DJs spin here on a regular basis (Han Cholo -of the rockin' jewelry line- is a fave "Jueves" and Senor Amor spices up Sundays). You'll see a notable influx when movies get out at the Vista up the street (listen for hammered "reviews") and when La Luz de Jesus Gallery a few blocks away has exhibit openings. For the most part, Chavito is part of the barhopper crawl along Sunset Blvd. that includes Tiki Ti and Good Luck Bar, but thanks to its bar ties (one of the owners of The Short Stop and Footsies has a stake in it) and newness, it's currently numero uno with local trendsters.
