Where do pirates go when they want to get a drink? They go to the Redwood Bar & Grill, of course. (Also, fans of The Goonies.) Decked out in over-the-top pirate décor, this funky dive bar is L.A's ultimate pirate pub -- call it nautical swag. Great bands perform here too, and the food is not bad! 316 W 2nd St.; 213-680-2600

7. Seven Grand
Colin Young-Wolff Seven Grand
Located directly above Mas Malo Mexican restaurant, Seven Grand looks as if Davy Crocket, the king of the wild frontier, was in charge of the interior decorating. Indeed, Seven Grand takes its deer heads and antlers, as well as its Markers Mark, very seriously. Known for attracting a sizable crowd even during the week, this spot is ideal for the trendy social butterfly. With live music Sunday-Wednesday night, cigars for sale, pool tables and strong Whiskey cocktails, it's worth discovering this frontier your own self. 515 W 7th St.; 2nd Fl; 213-614-0737
