To be honest, this week we've spent a little too much time in bars. But we know that you're probably considering having a drink this weekend, so a few of us put our heads together and came up with a list of those bars that we found best in '05.

Musso & Frank's, Hollywood - after 86 years, their martinis with sidecars still can't be beat
Footsie's, Cypress Park (ish) - the perfect jukebox as programmed by a teen brother in the 1970s
Club Tee Gee, Atwater - nope, it's not the Tee Yee. We checked.
The Wild Hare, Highland Park - generous drinks plus excellent food served late

Cole's - downtown
Mountain Bar - Chinatown
The Prince - Koreatown
