Come to Laurel Tavern any day of the week after 4:30pm, and you’ll find every after-work drinks situation in the Valley going down. And yet, this casual bar feels the furthest thing from an industry spot. Prices are reasonable (especially during their daily 3pm-6pm Happy Hour), the bar food is solid (their burger is among our favorite in the city), and every one is there to decompress until traffic on Laurel Canyon dies down.
