There’s no better way to challenge your depth-perception than with a game of cornhole while under the influence of your favorite cocktail. Traditionally a lawn game, cornhole consists of players taking turns throwing a bag full of corn over to a raised plank of wood with a hole carved out at the end of it. You get points for making it anywhere on the plank and even more points for making it through the hole. Some people call the backyard game a bean bag toss because the bags may be filled with beans instead of corn. Regardless of what you call it, this game is making its way to some of the best bars in LA with drinking games. If cornhole is your thing, then the best bars for cornhole in Los Angeles are the bars with a quality selection of booze and plenty of room to play.

Angel City Brewery
216 S. Alameda St.
Los Angeles, CA 90012
(213) 622-1261www.angelcitybrewery.com

Urban Sports LA, a co-ed social sports club, started cornhole at this craft brewery before starting their own cornhole league after a very successful night of cornhole at Angel City Brewery. Located in the art district of downtown Los Angeles, Angel City Brewery has paved the way to popularizing craft beer in a city full of artsy creatives, and now hosts a full set of events on a weekly basis. The place is known to be fairly inexpensive, but it’s most known for its “Angel Flight” consisting of at least five different craft brews straight from the tap for about eight bucks. The best part about Angel City is the look and feel of the place; pretty artwork to line the walls, plenty of room for cornhole and a handful of other games will keep you and your crew entertained

Committed to bringing the backyard game of cornhole to the streets of LA, Urban Sports LA started a Thursday night cornhole league at this popular venue for fun and games. Known for being the #1 sports bar in all of Los Angeles and California, Busby’s East reigns supreme for its access to every sports television package available, free billiards, video games and several dozen board games. Even if you’re not part of the cornhole league, there is plenty of other entertainment to keep you happy. The crowd you’ll typically find here are college students in their 20s and young professionals in their 30s. The friendly rivalry can get heated at times when you’ve got USC and UCLA fans up against each other creating massive amounts of fun times for the cornholers.

Another good place to play cornhole is Pitcher House Upper Deck if you live or work in the South Bay area. You can shoot pool and play ping pong inside, or play cornhole outside no matter the time of the day. You can even sing on karaoke nights and participate during trivia nights. Pitcher House is a pretty fun and casual spot to kick back, watch sports and hang with friends. The drink prices here are pretty good and the parking is free.

Golden Road Brewery
5410 W. San Fernando Road
Los Angeles, CA 90039
(213) 373-4677

Golden Road Brewery is another popular place to play cornhole and other outdoorsy games while sipping on a refreshing, eco-friendly craft brew. Gold Road also has a giant Jenga game set and a giant Connect Four too. Golden Road even has a horseshoe set up out on the patio in case there’s a wait for cornhole or some of the other games. Games and fun aside, Golden Road Brewery wouldn’t be nearly as fun without the awesome handcrafted beers brewed on-site, a handful of which are available year round. The fun and lively atmosphere makes it a great place for cornhole.
