The Down & Out

Map & Directions 501 S. Spring St.
Los Angeles, CA 90013-2310


LA Weekly's Description

Based in the lobby of the Hotel Alexandria, the Down & Out lives up to its name with dozens of celebrity mugshots scattered on the walls throughout the spacious bar. Large arrest photos of Charlie Sheen, James Brown, Lindsay Lohan and other unfortunate stars were even blown up to poster size and mounted behind the bar. Against the front wall, a mockup of a police lineup is ready to go for patrons who'd like to shoot their own mug shots. Despite all this emphasis on bad behavior, the Down & Out's regulars seem undeterred by the risks of partying too much as they line up at the bar. The downtown club has many distractions to keep barflies out of trouble and out of jail, including a row of vintage pinball machines and several pool tables. Barrio Tiger's Jimmy James books weekly hard-rock and underground-music nights, making the Down & Out one of the key places for real rock & roll in the heart of downtown. Ages 21 & over. Street parking.
