Del Monte Speakeasy2
Why locals love it
This is the original speakeasy of Los Angeles. With a dim lit basement bar, this was one of the first bars to open in Los Angeles in 1915. The speakeasy is right below an old grocery store, giving it the perfect cover.
Why you should visit it
The bar was one of the most popular places during the prohibition. The hidden underground bar also featured an entertainment stage for live performances every night. This bar still has entertainment every night, and the traditional decor gives its customers a blast from the past.
