Sam First Bar

$$$$4248002006
Hours:MONDAY4:00PM to 12:00AM

Sam First is a piano bar in Hawthorne where you might catch a live album recording on a random Friday night. Right around the corner from LAX, this jazz spot hosts weekly shows with big names in the jazz world like Christopher Mcbride and the LA Jazz Quartet. It’s the kind of swanky spot where you can recline on a leather bench with a Negroni in-hand, snack on charcuterie, and get cozy with a hot date. On most nights, you’ll need a ticket to enjoy the show. But even if you forget to book ahead of time, they’re usually selling spots at the door.
