The Best Late Night Downtown LA Party Spots

A list of the best late night downtown LA party spots that aren't in LA Live. There's no doubting the impact of LA Live on downtown Los Angeles. However, the Disneyfication of the area has taken away from the grit and grime that most locals go for. This list strives to give you the best options to get your drink on outside of the mega complex known as LA Live. This strives to give you options when you leave Staples Center after an event or even the Nokia Theater and Club Nokia. There are a few big name chain restaurants and bars in the facility, none posses the unique spirit that makes Los Angeles what it is like these places. Why are these places known as the best late night downtown party spots? Easy. They have a great selection of booze, a terrific atmosphere and cool people to hang out with. What more can you ask for in a late night party spot?

This list is based on a Thrillist article that touches on many of the same spots.
