I am definitely a fan of Downtown. One reason is that it has a lot of my favorite bars. But also because it's the one place where you get a true feel of historic Los Angeles. And Cole's on 6th Street truly gives us that. It has been around since the early 1900's and was L.A.'s first public house.
Cole's has happy hour 3-7pm Monday - Friday and all night on Tuesdays. You can get a Half French Dip and Fries for just $5, $5 wells, $3 Schlitz Beer, and $8 specialty cocktails.
I love their specialty cocktails but especially when they are made by one of my favorite bartenders, D. "Max" Maxey. His cocktails are always perfection!
Monte Carlo $8
Rye Whiskey, Benedictine, Angostura Bitters
Elton McGregor $8
Scotch, Absinthe, Orgeat, Mint, Laphroaig
*Loved this one, too*
But if you are a beer drinker, you can always get a Schlitz for $3 bucks!
Reminds me of "Laverne and Shirley"!
I love their French Dips, but I just wish you got a whole Dip rather than a half. Oh well.
So if you haven't gone to Cole's yet, you are missing out! So go soon... and invite me!!
