I'm looking for some suggestions of bars or lounges in Hollywood (walkable from the red line) so not too far off the beaten path there, OR in downtown Los Angeles near the financial district.
Not too young (30-somethings - not a USC hangout), not too loud, not a dance club. Good drinks, decent atmosphere, not completely packed. Casual; A place where there may be room to sit and have a conversation. I know I may be asking for a lot here, but know nothing on this subject. Anything would help!
