Southland Beer is a tap room/bottle store in a random strip mall on Western Ave., but it’s home to one of the best beer stocks in central LA. They’ve got 16 rotating taps, three refrigerators full of bottles you can take home, and a great space to post up with friends and play games all night. There’s also a better-than-it-needs-to-be snack menu for when the hunger pains strike. Check the calendar on their Facebook page for nightly events.
