Fodor's Review

With craft cocktails, beers on tap, an outdoor smoking patio, and retro video games, this bar combines a long list of amenities with a swanky but laid-back vibe. With one of the oldest liquor licenses in Los Angeles (issued in 1905), the Golden Gopher is the only bar in Los Angeles with an on-site liquor store for to-go orders—just in case you want to buy another bottle before you head home.
