There's a new and special passport out there that allows you to put on your explorer cap for drinking adventures, getting you discounts at sweet bars, breweries and restaurants throughout Los Angeles.

While the Passport Program has been available in other cities since it launched in 2013, this is the first time that it's available in Los Angeles, Time Out Los Angeles reports.

The way it works if that you just need to buy the company's passport for $20 (or discounted at $15 if you can snatch it while supplies last). That will give you access to one drink special per venue from May 22 to Sept. 7. There are 84 participating venues that you'll get to check out—from fancy spots to dive bars and saloons. You'll see places like Harlowe, Sassafras Saloon, NowBoarding, Wolf & Crane, La Cita and Far Bar on the list.

The deals include discounts on drinks that vary depending on the venue. We've seen a number of them where the drinks are discounted just a buck or two, but then there are a few that are $4 to $7 off. Some venues will also present a special drink that is cheaper than their other cocktails on their menus.

Here's a sampling of some of the specials:

Far Bar - $8 Yuzu Yazi Mule
Harlowe - $10 Bartender’s Choice
Villain's Tavern - $7 BellaDonna
The Hungry Cat - $7 Greyhound Proper
The Normandie Club - $9 Spritz
Power House - $8 Barrel Aged Old Fashioned
Seven Grand - $10 Old Fashioned
Cassell's Hamburgers - $8 Root Cause
Wolf & Crane - $7 Wolf & Crane Highball
Beso - $5 Beso White or Red Sangria

When you get to the joints, hand over your passport to the server or bartender, order your discounted drink, get a stamp in your passport, tip as if you're paying for the full-price of the drink, and then move on to your next spot. Think of it like an over three month trip to Chillsville, USA.

The passports are on sale now on their website here. Currently, they're discounted at $15 a booklet while supplies last until May 22. Then they go up in price to $20.
