Not only is this unassuming Santa Monica bar with a great name one of the best craft beer bars in town, it’s also known as the best whiskey bar in L.A.

The Drink to Drink: Whichever craft beer is in the cask. Or ask the bartender for a recommendation on a scotch to suit your mood.
Know Before You Go: No kitchen here. But feel free to order pizza to be delivered from down the street.
