Library Bar

Library Bar

After reading about this in the Downtown News, I was intrigued. I stopped in for a lil "afternoon cap" since I work downtown and tis the season.

It's located in this redone building a block away from the LA Public Library, next to a Wolfgang Puck Express. Inside seems a bit, well like a library. Not the kind like up the block, but more of a library room in a like in a mansion: wood floors, dimly lit and quite cozy. It has an old time feel but at the same time is quite modern. The marble bar is a plus.

There was some holiday party going while I was there, so it was pretty full. The rest of the crowd seem to be downtown working types of all ages.

Beer and wine seem to be the focus. There was not an enormous selection but most of it was well thought out. On-tap: Craftsman 1903 and Xmas Ale, Hoegaarden, North Coast Rasputin, Leffe, Stella and one or two more. Bottles included all 3 Chimays, Delirium Tremens, Maredsous 8, Kasteel, a few lambics and some others. Not the beer paradise of the world but definitely the best spot I've come across to have a drink downtown.

I like to get my beer from Carl's Jr. in downtown.
