Signage to Sing O'er
Posted by:  adam c. marshall

Normally I don't give a rat's ass about LA's penchant for out-of-the-way bars and absent signage. But I have to admit I kind of like The Well's side street locale. It's one of the first bars I went to after arriving in LA. And I tend to find my way back there now and again. Off to the side of the House of Blues building, its interior is simple, classy enough, and dark. And they have a happy hour every night. Every night. I shouldn't even have to continue, but I will. They also have a great jukebox and they serve food--which makes The Well a great midway point if you're bar-hopping. Now, I do find it irksome at times that their bar can be a little simplistic. I once had something like a "Who's on First?" conversation with the bartender over the fact that they don't have simple syrup. But, hey, these are the sacrifices we make. So you substitute an Old Fashioned with a dirty-as-fuck martini, temper the juice with some bar snacks, hope for something killer on the jukebox that'll remind you of better times, and you're well on your way. The night is young.
