June Gloom/the Los Angeles winter is over and Summer here. Looking for something fun, exciting and new to do? Here are some activities, locations, restaurants and bars that will avoid any summertime sadness.
To some it seems a trivial kind of happiness. It's just a sign after all. But to many, neon bar signs are more: they are in fact works of art, and whole movements exist to document, photograph and preserve these all-too-frequently disappearing bits of America's past.
The hotel bar scene in LA is truly a fixture on the city's nightlife scene, whether it's for pre-dinner drinks or nightcaps. But some spots go above and beyond with their cocktail menus, inviting Angelenos and visitors to sit back and stay awhile.

Los Angeles is a town where people work hard and play hard. But some places play really hard. Grab your drunk helmet (we just invented that) and enlist your designated driver, because here are five bars in L.A. where sobriety goes to die.
Living in Los Angeles, the bar scene is saturated with overpriced, watered-down drinks and unwelcoming servers. I found one bar, however, that has changed my opinion of Los Angeles nightlife: Drai's Hollywood.
