Before the Date…

It’s a school night but you feel like getting out. Lucky for you the bars aren’t crowded, happy hours last all night, and there’s a record club giving away free drinks in DTLA. Start with a touch of local history where musicians have gathered for years. Next scour a famous book shop for the latest record for your collection. Finally, arrive at a Record Club to play freshies on your newest record and toast to a good nights work.

So call up your most musically inclined friends and head out on a Tuesday worth getting hungover from.

St0p #1: arrive @ 8pm

CLASSIC BITES

on a 100 year argument

What to Know

The French Dip argument is between Cole’s and Philippe’s has lasted since 1908! Apparently they both “invented” the sandwich but no one knows the truth.

Happy hour is Mon. – Fri. 3-7pm but for this date on Tuesdays it’s all night.

No reservation is necessary but sitting at the bar is almost a must.

The names of “The Professionals” behind the bar are all the locals that have donned the bar for years. Ask the bartender, one of them may be drinking next to you.

What to order: The dip trio, fried pickles and a manhattan. You can’t go wrong for $17.

Looking for a second cocktail? Check out The Varnish. A speakeasy through the door at the back of the dining room. Unfortunately, the piano player doesn’t start til 9:30pm but the drinks are spot on.

St0p #2: 9pm

RECORD SHOPPING

in a quasi-museum

What to Know

In what used to be an old bank this bookstore, among other things, puposely unfiles their fiction section to inspire an adventure in finding your next book.

If you’ve never been here before first thing to do is to head up the stairs and tour the second floors art gallery and book “maze”.

The records are to the right of the entrance on the first floor.

Most the records in the middle section are over $15. Looking for a bargain? The boxes along the windows and stacked in the back have 99 cent vinyl.

Connoisseur of the Streets Tip: If you’re on a romantic date tell whoever you’re with that they have a $20 (or whatever you’re comfortable with) limit on any record you’ll buy them, and yourself. Let the scavenger hunt begin.

St0p #3: around 10pm

LOCAL BEERS & VINYL

at a weekly record club

What to Know

Yes, this bar is self proclaimed as the “dumbest bar in LA.”

The first 10 people to arrive with a record will get a free drink ticket from Emily behind the decks. She runs Record Club LA. Make sure you head straight to her when you arrive, hand her your record and get a drink ticket.

Check in to (and follow) Record Club LA’s Instagram the day you’re going to see if there is a theme.

Mix it up a bit with the Tapper arcade game in the corner.

Wanna be casanova? Write a nice note beforehand on how you had a great night. Make sure to date it. Before the nights end slip it into your dates record. It’ll be a nice reminder when they break out that vinyl to get nostalgic.

Bonus: If the good times need to keep rolling stop next door to the Slipper Clutch for arcade game action.
