The Otheroom looks like a grungy dive bar grew up, got a haircut, and now has a stable enough job to afford to live on Abbot Kinney. This spot is great for beer drinking in groups (there’s no hard liquor here), with a space that stays mellow even when it fills up on weekends. The big open windows let in a ton of light that’s nice for day drinking, but at night things turn darker and more date-y
