Perfect place except the Bathrooms

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

Also:
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.

I always pass by and freak out over the apparent tiki-vibe. I loveee the roof!

Wow, this place really does look and sound like a fiesta!  I can appreciate stiff drinks in a laid back atmosphere.  Thanks for sharing, Kevin! :)

Fiesta Cantina is a bar and grill located in the heart of West Hollywood.  With its surfer feel fused with it's Latin name, this bar has no problem attracting all kinds of different people to it happy hours.  Daily it offers 2 for 1 specials between 4-8 PM and 1030-1230 AM, except for gay holidays such as GAY PRIDE LA.   With their drinks averaging 7-8 dollars, it is not a bad idea to start your night here considering other places in the gayborhood will run you about 10 dollars …

I'm a total nerd. I like comic books, science fiction books and movies, and I like LOST. I also used to be a huge World of Warcraft junkie but I don't have a whole lot of time for that. The X-Men are … more
