LA Weekly's Description

From the outside, the Golden Gopher looks like a dive - one where long-time alkies would be slumped over the bar with a strong whisky on the rocks. But, looks can be deceiving. Inside, the Golden Gopher is a luxurious lounge with dangling glass chandeliers, plush wraparound couches and gold-adorned gopher lamps. A relaxed and classy atmosphere attracts a diverse crowd ranging from USC frat boys to hipster artists to the business crowd. A smoking patio with a view of the skyline is inviting and old-fashioned video games (Ms. Pacman, Centipide and Asteroids) offer guests a break from drinking.

    No cover. Good drinks. Outdoor patio. Close to Tacos Mexico!

    Sunday is BYOIpod night. Smart marketing ploy, or too cheap to pay for their tunes? Just come dressed as slick as your tunes, because the no baggy pants–wearing, jock-apparel dress code is in order.

  • I went along with witch doctor Malak’s insistence that his golden gopher statue was to be worshipped, mostly because my hands were bound, but also because his charts and graphs made a lot of sense.

    Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. This place has a liquor license so old, you can stop in for a martini at the bar and pick up a six-pack on your way out.
