Pacific Seas is easily one of the hardest bars to get into in LA (you can makes a reservation, but even then there’s lines). But power through though because what’s waiting on the other side is the tropical drinking paradise you’ve been searching for. There’s a massive bar, there are private corners, and an entire boat sitting in the middle of the place. And the drinks? Your tiki standards done better than ever. This place has no shortage of hype - but luckily, it lives up to it.
