The Bungalow

Los Angeles, recognized for its warm weather and sunny days. It’s no wonder why there are tons of outdoor bars in this city. Here are five bars that will make you feel like you never left the comfort of your own home.

Big Dean’s Ocean Front Cafe

Located right off the Santa Monica Pier. Big Dean’s is great if you’re looking to watch the big game at the beach while enjoying one of their tap beers. The best part is their laid-back surfer vibe. Plus it is flip-flop and dog friendly. Definitely a place to hang-loose, eat some burgers, and sip on some booze on a Sunday afternoon.

High Tide

Recently opened, High Tide is for good reason located in the Arts District. Their outdoor decor is what initially caught my interest. They have a gazebo and pink flamingos everywhere. Think of it as your Palm Spring Oasis located in the heart of LA. Perfect for smaller groups; their food is tasty, affordable, and appetizer sized. Release your creativity in their very own beer garden.

Speakeasies have rapidly become a sensation in LA. At Davey Waynes, you enter through a retro refrigerator and into a set straight out of a 70s movie. It is dark and mysterious inside but bright and welcoming outside. Their patio has funky patterned seating areas and swinging hammocks. It’s a good time that you won’t forget.

Playing video games at home will never be the same.
