The Frolic Room
Joel and Reuben are the evening bartenders of The Frolic Room on Hollywood Blvd. They have been there for years and are there every single night. The Frolic is the oldest - and one of the coolest - bars in the area.
I can walk to the bar from my apartment and have spent many nights over the years drinking my face off in there. How can I not love a place where the bartender shouts "NEIGHBOR!" as I walk in and makes my vodka sodas exactly the way I like them (lime squeezed in, but not dropped in, my drink)? The only food they offer there is Jiffy Pop popcorn and peanuts, but you can have pizza delivered to the bar and eat it there. How cool is that?!
The drinks are strong, the bartenders are super nice guys, the jukebox is fun, and locals love the place.
