Downtown is just a place where people work. After 8:00 p.m. its pretty much a ghost town there.

Unlike other metropolitian cities, LA's downtown has historically and continues to be a commuter experience. Most workers can't stay after work and drink heavily because they still have to drive home. Unlike NYC, there are no taxi's or trains to take you home. That being said, I have been surprised at how many options there are and how many people come into downtown for lounges. 7 Grand (on 7th and grand) has an amazing whiskey/scotch selection and live bands on certain days. I've come on a Sat and there was even a wait outside. I've read that the owner also owns the Golden Gopher and some membership only lounge. Of course J Lounge is huge and not a bad place either. People still do make it to the Standard.

I'm not saying that this is anything close to going out on the westside or hollywood, but just check it out and you may be pleasantly surprised.

Depends on where you go downtown. The Music Center, Staples, LA Live, and the Pantry is open 24 hours. Pete's Cafe and the Weiland are open well past midnight and those places are usually full of people.

I remember Glam Slam downtown back in the early 90's when Prince owned it. It was a club called Vertigo before that (very 80's neon black and white checkerboard floor). Those are the only two clubs that I used to go to downtown, but that was ages and ages ago.
