LA Weekly's Description
Hop Louie is not a destination for great Chinese food, but it is a cultural artifact. Built in Chinatown in 1941, the cocktails are cheaper than what youd pay at other spots particularly in the nearby downtown area and the vibe is kitschy enough to make you not care that the food is only mediocre. However, if you're going to order some eats, go for the crab Rangoon, egg rolls or fried rice. And in the meantime, enjoy the jukebox filled with classic pop oldies, the makeshift dance floor, and the much appreciated low-key vibe.
Tips from foursquare
A jukebox full of classic tunes, from standards to rock anthems; a skilled bartender with stories to tell; elderly barflies who really look like they’ve lived; & reasonably priced drinks. Need more?
LA Weekly's Best of LA 2010 pick - Best Bit of Chinese Kitsch!
This place is the very definition of a dive bar. Springsteen on the jukebox and Budweisers for two bucks. The Airborne Toxic Event love the sketches on napkins of the bartender behind the bar.
The jukebox rules all at this Chinatown dive bar.
Bartender is an ass. Go upstairs but know what you want to drink.
