Fodor's Expert Review Redwood Bar & Grill

Downtown Los Angeles Bars/Pubs

If you're looking for a place with potent drinks and a good burger, this kitschy bar fits the bill perfectly. Known today as the "pirate bar" because of its nautical decor, the place dates back to the 1940s, when it was rumored to attract mobsters, politicians, and journalists due to its proximity to City Hall, the Hall of Justice, and the original location of the Los Angeles Times. There's nightly music from local rock bands, though it comes with a cover charge.
