Good Clean Fun is a new natural wine bar and restaurant in Downtown LA, ideal for both long and short hangs. It’s a pretty customizable experience, with a lengthy wine, beer, and sake list (filled with cute names like “Art & Science Fruit pet nat” or “Swick WYD? Chardonnay”) if you’re just looking to sip something quickly then bounce. But if you, half-way through, remember how much you and your college roommate get along, there’s also a compact Italian-leaning food menu to order from. We like the pasta bucatini with red sauce, which comes with super thick noodles and goes well with white wine and gossiping about mutual friends.
