96 "Drinks & A Light Bite" restaurants in Los Angeles.
When you don’t want to commit to a full dinner (blind date, catching up with an aunt, waiting two hours for a table elsewhere), bars with good food are ideal. Make an easy exit after the first round, or go for a second and maybe some food if it’s going well. Either way, these spots have you covered.
Hermanito is a casual Mexican cantina on Sawtelle and a great place to post up after work while traffic dies down.
An all-day spot serving coffee, wine and beer, and great cafe food, Paper Or Plastik is a spot on Pico that you need to know about.
Found Oyster is one of the best seafood restaurants in LA. We love this East Hollywood spot so much, we wish we didn’t have to tell you about it.
The Fifth is a rooftop bar/restaurant in Anaheim with great views of Disneyland and a touristy crowd that’s ready to get rowdy.
Holcomb is a cool, casual wine bar in Highland Park that you wish was closer to you.
Tilda is a wine bar in Echo Park that has everything - bottles of natural wines, French-ish snacks, and a room full of people way cooler than you.
Jones Hollywood is a classic spot that works for pretty much anything, and is the version Hollywood we actually wish existed.
Eszett is an Austrian-ish spot on Sunset in Silver Lake, and an ideal place when you want to do date night a little differently.
Malibu’s Broad Street Oyster Company is the grown-up version of a pop-up, and the ultimate LA seafood destination.
Lanea in Santa Monica is an OK cocktail bar, but what you’re here for are the Barba Kush tacos.
The Greyhound in Glendale is a solid new sports bar from the people behind the original Highland Park location.
The Wellesbourne is a posh British bar on Pico that’s perfect for grabbing a drink in between episodes of “The Crown.”
The West End might not look like much from the outside, but it remains one of our go-to cocktail bars in Westwood.
Bodega in Los Alamos is the summer camp you wish you had - fire pits, hammocks, and an all-day beer and wine garden on the weekend.
Ototo in Echo Park is a casual Japanese spot with a lot going for it - including a huge sake selection - and a lot going against it, too.
