Pros: Great ambience, super busy Saturday night. Overall I had a lot of fun. The drinks were unique and amazing. Hanzo is my favorite because i love sweet drinks and I would also recommend Bella Donna.
Con: pretty crowded and it took a while to get the drinks but it's worth the wait if this is your first time there. Don't pay with your credit card if you're ordering drinks from the side bar, bring cash. The reason I'm giving 3stars instead of 4 is because of the douchebag bartender I had. He took forever to make peoples drink because he was goofing around. He told my sister to give him a kiss if she wanted him to make a drink that's not on the list. I asked him for a specific drink I wanted that was on the list (but didn't know the name) and he kept mumbling or slurring that he didn't know what that was (it was the only drink on the list with a strawberry garnish). A girl next to me asked for a glass of water which he served then he pushed out of her reach. What pissed me off the most was that he forged extra $4 onto my credit card tip. Becareful If u see a shaggy, skinny, white bartender at the side bar on Saturday night.

This bar is such a gem! It has everything I'd want for a night out-- live music, delicious and fresh hand-crafted cocktails, a diverse beer list, good food, and my favorite, outdoor patio! The bartenders are super friendly and will make whatever your heart desires. The patio area has ample seating. The food is great for dinner or a midnight snack-- last time I was here I had their corn-on-the-cob and ceviche. It was a perfect 5th meal =)

Nice little hidden spot in dtla away from the tall buildings. It's close to little Tokyo and offers a lot of drinks and snacks. The owner seems to like making things out of wood and created lots of wood type structures like a huge scale connect 4 with wooden pieces.
Def a place to drop in and eat and drink during your rush hour traffic, a hidden gem inside LA

One of my favorite places to get my drink on!
If Villains Tavern was a person, he’d be that guy that sported a mustache before everyone and their dad’s started to. He’d be that guy that freelances graphic design in the day and enjoys playing his banjo at night. All in all, Villains Tavern has character. Filled with random knickknacks, this place serves up some awesome craft beers and delicious food that pairs nicely with their drinks. The live music is a big plus!

Fun, Fun, Fun is how I describe this place. When you come here with the right kind of people (hippies, pirates, drunkards), it gets pretty crazy. They have board games that you can check out, cheap drinks to get you wasted.
4 stars instead of 5 due to their middle of nowhere location.

It was kind of hard to find, tucked away behind a bunch of sketchy warehouses in a ghetto part of DTLA. Don't be frightened by the homeless, or the scummy street, as soon as you pull into the parking lot, it almost feel like an oasis for hipsters in a vast ghetto.
The bar is really dark but the outside patio is really cool and fun place to hangout. Drinks are very reasonable, and the bartenders are fast. Parking is difficult to find in their lot due to the popularity of this place, and street parking is very sketchy.
