Short Stop

Map & Directions 1455 Sunset Blvd.

LA Weekly's Description

On weekends and hot DJ nights (Wednesdays and Thursdays) there is literally a line down the block to get into this popular Echo Park bar (named for its proximity of Dodger Stadium), and for the most part it's worth the wait. The red-hued dance room feels like a bonafide dance club, but the place is always free and filled with hip yet friendly local boogie-ers and barhoppers. There's a great pool table area, a black & white photo booth that's extra brightly lit and thereby makes everyone look good, and a guy often selling $1 tamales near the door (the ubiquitous bacon-wrapped hot dog vendors are always outside too). It might be a scenester circus, but the Short Stop's also made a point of keeping around reminders of the day when it was a popular policeman hangout: memorabilia like billyclub parts, badges, patches and gun lockers, and a bounty of bullet holes behind the bar and in the front door.

    PBR (on tap!) specials and dark dark rooms next to the bar absolutely perfect for paying off cops

    Fun bar, cheap drinks, pool, smoking patio, photo booth, cool bartenders, local crowd, vegan pot luck on Thursday nights

    Great place to get drinks before or after the Dodger game. Darts, pool tables, stiff drinks and a freaky dance floor...

    The Shortstop features old cop memorabilia, a great pool table, a photo booth, and great drinks. It's a sprawling space that's great for meeting all your friends. -Ashley Merriman, Top Chef

    Short Stop has the dive bar essentials: Pool table? Check. Jukebox and tiny dance floor? Check. A clientele who'd rather be here than head back home? Triple check.

    Remember your night by taking some cool black and white photos in their awesome old-school photo booth.

    If you like drinking $2 beer's before the Dodger game then the Short Stop is your kind of bar. Once a favorite hangout for the LAPD it is now a spot for Dodger fans, locals and hipsters.
