The time has come for downtown's Bar 107's true last call, much to the chagrin of its many regulars. We were very sad to break the news that Bar 107's days were numbered back in April, when co-owner Vee Delagadillo confirmed that the lovable dive was being ousted by its landlord, Victor Vasquez. Delgadillo wasn't happy, and neither were the numerous regulars the self-proclaimed "greatest sh*thole on Earth" had racked up over the last decade. (Technically, their 10-year anniversary would have been July 6, but close enough.)

No miracles occurred over the course of the last month, and Bar 107's final weekend is upon us. They've been insulting us via their Facebook page for the last month, reminding us to stop by to pay our respects. Today was no exception:

O.K. you f*cking mongrels, it's the last weekend for this dump so let's make it count. Open Sat/Sun. at 6am & we close at 2am. 50+ hours left for "The World's Greatest Toilet"!!! It's gonna be an epic weekend bitches.

Even Koreatown's R Bar is encouraging Angelenos to get one last pint in at Bar 107 this weekend, calling it "one of the greatest dives" in L.A.

Bar 107 will open at 6 a.m. both days, as it has been for the month of May. This means you can get drunk for brunch, in true dive fashion. Drink up, dance, reminisce and maybe even score a commemorative shirt.

As for what will happen to Bar 107 after the lights turn off, we're not sure. Delgadillo told us that Vasquez—whose father owns the building—had plans to open his own, more upscale bar in the same spot. We reached out to Vasquez at the time, but he said he had no comment.

You can still visit Delgadillo's other two downtown spots: the slightly less divey Down & Out and the recently opened, New Orleans-themed joint, The Little Easy. We also like Bar 107 partner Brian Traynam's The Escondite.
