Is your friend getting married and you’re the one tasked with planning his bachelor party? No need to worry. The city of Los Angeles gives you plenty of options to tailor his sendoff into married life with class. Be it for a nature lover or for a man who appreciates a great burger, the following bars could be the frame for a celebration that will leave you both with unforgettable memories.
515 W 7th St
Los Angeles, CA 90014
For the bachelor who appreciates whiskey and perhaps a good cigar, the Seven Grand may be the perfect place to celebrate his last days of singlehood. If the bachelor happens to like jazz and blues, plan his party Monday through Wednesday when the bar features live music. The whiskey selection here is impressive but the full bar can accommodate anyone’s preferences. There are a few pool tables, TVs and well-balanced background music that will still allow your group to keep a great conversation.
