Blogdowntown has posted their list of picks for 12 great bars in DTLA where you can imbibe without inflicting pain...on your budget.They've compiled a list that spotlights lesser-known watering holes and great specials on offer at some popular spots.

You can get your "Budget Buzz" on with fellow spots enthusiasts at Big Wangs, at longtime favorite bars like the Golden Gopher or the Broadway Bar, or at a dive like Hank's. Mingle with "a mélange of hipsters, yuppies and shady characters," at Bar 107, or try one of the over 60 beers at Dublins.

Other must-try places on the list: Back Door Pub, Campers Corner, The Down N Out, King Eddy Saloon, Las Perlas, and Spring Street.

Cheers! And, hey--isn't it happy hour right about now?
