El Carmen LA

El Carmen LA


The dim lighting and kitschy lucha libre–themed décor scream dive bar. The more than 400 tequilas and mezcals at this venerable spot scream agave-lover’s dream. The Margarita is renowned as one of the city’s best, while the tacos and ceviche are both delicious.

THE DRINK TO DRINK:
Keep it simple: a shot of tequila and a cheap beer or one of the three Margarita options (traditional, spicy or with fresh fruit).

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO:
No joke about this being a dive bar: It’s loud and dark inside, and the service can be…less than attentive. The tequila makes it worthwhile.
