This is the original location of what has become one of the most recognizable bars in the city, and after close to 100 years along Santa Monica Blvd., the magic’s still here. The food is above far average for a sports bar (get the chili or nachos), but it’s their nightly events and party vibe you can actually tolerate that keeps you coming back. Whether you’re there for NFL Sundays or Tuesday trivia night or their Wednesday Karaoke where you’ll definitely see a celebrity sing Heart, Barney’s is a classic and Weho wouldn’t be the same without it.
