Frank 'n Hank

Map & Directions 518 S. Western Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90020
  • Daily 5pm-2am


LA Weekly's Description

The full name is actually just Frank n Hank, not Frank and Hank's, as one might assume, and it's as divey as its lack of possessives might make lead you to believe. Within feet of other Koreatown fixtures, such as Orchid, where wealthy Westsiders pay dearly for table service and private karaoke rooms, Frank n Hank is the opposite: unpretentious and cheap. Head here for a post-karaoke cooldown and get tanked for less than $20. Inside, a simple row of barstools, a pool table and a juke box fill out a room smaller than your average studio apartment. The bar also features regulars who seem too comfortable not to have been coming here for many years, and the female proprietor, Snow, who's at her post every night of the week, seems to grudgingly accept her symbiotic relationship with them. Perhaps because of this large contingency of loyal but barely paying customers, she is extremely friendly to the young and solvent-looking. Her good cheer, the prices, the lack of crowding and the central location make this an excellent stopping point - as long as your love of pool supersedes your desire for trendy decor.

    Tip the bartender well...she's also the manager (owner?) and she pours a stiff drink. Did I mention...Jim Beam on the rocks for four fifty?!
