When it comes to drinking cheap cocktails and listening to live music in LA, Hotel Cafe can’t be beat. The hidden space on Cahuenga in Hollywood (you have to enter in the alleyway) is neither a hotel or a cafe, but your best shot of seeing people perform who will be on the radio next year. Also, celerbrities love it here too, so the chances of seeing Justin Timberlake hop on stage for a quick acoustic set in between acts is high. The vibe here is far cooler and low-key than the rock venues on The Strip, with an insider crowd who’s there solely to drink and discover new music.
