Drink Library Bar's signature cocktails in Los Angeles

Library Bar

Duck into this sultry hideaway in the heart of Downtown LA’s Financial District. Books line the walls of this library-themed space, but you’ll never be bored enough to read them. Dim lighting, leather sofas, and a fireplace give this lounge a “dark academia” feel that’s perfect for deep conversation. Drop in for date night or to catch up with a close friend. DJs come in on weekends to add a dose of energy but the vibe never gets too out of control. Library Bar is an ideal Los Angeles neighborhood bar for those who appreciate an intimate, laid back venue with an air of sophistication.

Library Bar Details:

🍔 Food:
There’s a surprisingly thorough menu of bites that includes things like buffalo wings, charcuterie, burgers, and sandwiches. Plenty of vegan options available also. The kitchen closes at different times each day: Tues at 8:40pm, Weds-Thurs at 10:40pm, and Fri-Sat at 11:40pm.

🍸 Drinks:
Cocktails all have literary-inspired names like the Adventures of Blackberry Finn (made with blackberry-infused vodka) and the Tequila Mockingbird (made with house-infused spicy serrano tequila). You’ll also find beer, hard seltzer, hard cider, and wine.

🎶 Music:
Music is usually top 40, throwbacks, or hip hop. DJs come in on Friday and Saturday night also. It doesn’t get nightclub loud, but just enough to add some energy to the space.

Library Bar mixes upscale lounge vibes with an approachable, neighborhood bar atmosphere. It really feels like you’re seated in the nook of the study in a vintage European mansion. The crowd is made up of mostly late 20s and 30s small groups of friends. It’s also a solid option as a daytime solo drink or starter spot for your Tinder date.

📸 Photo Ops:
You’ll definitely want a pic with the angel wing art right when you walk in. You also can’t go wrong with a classic bookshelf backdrop.

😃 Happy Hour:
Drink specials go from 3pm-7pm Tuesday-Friday. You’ll find $10 cocktails and $6 selections of beer and wine.
