List Rules Vote for the greatest bars in the LA area

The best bars in Los Angeles is one of the more subjective lists of great places to drink in LA that could possibly exist. Everybody has their favorite bar for different reasons; you like dive bars because of the locals, rooftop bars for the scenery, downtown bars for the drinks, etc. Point is: we all like to drink and this list of the greatest bars in LA will either turn you on to a new watering hole or reaffirm there's no need to vacate the seat you've been filling at your local for the last (insert period of time you're not willing to admit publicly here).

The top LA bars are not made by a single drink, person, or location, but a combination of all these factors and more. Whether you frequent a bar for the dart boards, the craft cocktails, or even because it's the bar with the hottest women in the city (and come on, boys, we're all hot when you're drunk, am I right?), there is something intangible about four walls serving booze that makes it the greatest bar in Los Angeles. 

What is the best bar in Los Angeles? What LA bar has the best drinks? What are the best bars in the city? Let's be real: there are THOUSANDS of bars in the city, many better than others, and this list of the best bars in LA only scratches the surface of the best places to drink in LA. If your favorite bar in Los Angeles isn't on the list of LA's top bars, add it; I'm not going to argue with somebody giving me an excuse to try a new bar.
