On our weekend trips to LA we often ended up at 11-12pm on Fridays or Saturdays after some tasting menus at Tar Pit for a few relaxed last cocktails of the night. The place was lively but relaxed and not too loud to be able to hear each other, had good cocktails and not too crowded that you wouldn't get a table/place at the bar for an hour. Unfortunately Tar Pit closed, so where are similar places in West LA and downtown ? There are a number of places with good cocktails, like Copa d'or but you have to wait for an hour to get in on Fridays/Saturdays etc. Any ideas where to find our Tar Pit replacement ?
