Consider this for a second, a bar that has a happy hour from 11 p.m. till midnight Wednesdays & Thursdays where the drinks are half-price. Then consider this bar is conveniently located in the middle of Hollywood. Then consider it also allows women to dance on the bar itself and in their bird cage. Then consider this same bar's bartenders pouring whiskey all over the bar and setting it on fire. Then consider why you're not going there.

Birds is the quintessential neighborhood bar. You show up. You know everyone. The bartenders know what you're drinking even before you order it. It's the sort of place that once you sleep with one person you've slept with the entire bar. I recommend Birds because it's my favorite place to drink in Los Angeles. They make the strongest drinks and you’d have to do something catastrophic to get cut off or thrown out. There's a patio outside for the smokers and they welcome animals. Plus, they set the damn bar on fire twice last week. Can you beat that?

Birds is located at 5925 Franklin Avenue, Los Angeles, California 90028. Tell them Sabrina sent you and they'll treat you right.
