You know those bars where you walk in and you immediately feel like you are out of place? No matter how good you look or how snazzy you are dressed, you can tell everyone is judging you. You just want to take a shot and get the hell out.
Fiesta is not one of those places.
Its quite the opposite. In fact, I know some people who don’t like to go to Fiesta because the crowd is so low key. If you are looking for a place that is very deliberately NOT LA, then this is the place for you.
Located in the heart of boys town, Fiesta Cantina is the homo version of Cabo Cantina. With strong, cheap drinks, food, and multiple happy hours every day, it’s like the margarita shack you remember from your spring breaks in Mexico.
Some of the highlights of Fiesta are:
- Strong drinks
- Cheap drinks
- Great place to chill with friends and make new ones
- Great location for people watching
- Decent food (if you have had a few drinks)
- No pretentious posers
The drinks here are really super strong, especially the 2-for-1 specials, so expect to get trashed. The waiters are all super buff and wear as little as they can, depending on the weather. A few bad things about this place: On Friday and Saturday nights it can get pretty packed. I suggest you try the upstairs bar. The bathrooms are quite gross. If you’re a lady, you should go before you come. Last, the jukebox has really OLD music, so don’t expect the newest Lady GaGa.
