Nerdy Bars!
If you just want to hang out and get a drink, might I suggest a few of my favorite watering holes

Eighty-Two
707 E 4th Pl
Los Angeles, CA 90013

Vintage Arcade games and a full bar, this place has everything you need for an epic night. Just remember these two phrases: I CALL NEXT GAME! and LOSER BUYS NEXT ROUND!

Villains Tavern
1356 Palmetto St
Los Angeles, CA 90013

If you need some food before hitting a bad you can’t go wrong with Villains. Good atmosphere, great drinks, and ideally located in downtown LA. what more do you need?

Blipsy
369 N Western Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90004

If you prefer your video game bars to be a little less trendy and a little more “dive bar” then Blipsy is your place.
