Hyperion Tavern

1941 Hyperion Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90027
Best Of
This tiny Silver Lake bar is almost literally a hole in the wall burrowed into the side of a hill. There is no sign marking the location, save for a glowing red-and-white-striped barbershop pole that beckons passersby. Hyperion Tavern is about the size of a living room, with a small stage, a DJ booth, a piano, a dance floor that's almost an afterthought and a wooden bar crowded into the diminutive space. Distinguishing features include chandeliers, a wall lined with bookshelves and a cash register mounted with a large silver medallion commemorating JFK. Formerly the site of the notorious leather bar Cuffs, the l'il tavern is now the spot for a notoriously adventurous range of weekly DJ nights. Beer only. Ages 21 & over.
