This wine bar's post across the street from the Echo (and the fact that it shares the same owner) isn't the only reason El Prado has fast become hipster central. The constantly changing wine and beer list is exceptional, the warm, amber-lit look of the place is simple yet stylish, and the bartenders play groovy jams (from a turntable behind the bar). Yeah, it's hip, but it's sophisticated hip, not grungester hip like other bars in the area (Gold Room, Little Joy, etc.). Brick, wood and chalkboard walls enclose the place, and the long wood bar sees pop-in drinkers and all-night Echo Park seat-parkers alike. Cheese plates and other light pairing-appropriate bites are available.
This is one of my favorite bars in Echo Park, a little joint that makes you feel like you're in New York. Very intimate, dim-lighting, warm decor, glossy wood ... it's usually elbow-to-elbow inside, but try to snag the corner semi-booth area to avoid the crush. Great, affordable wines and beers by the glass. Wish they offered more cheeses and snack plates, but that's a minor nit.
