Hey I moved here about five weeks ago from Minnesota. I live in Hollywood. Are there any bars I absolutely have to check out? I love El Scorpion on Hollywood Boulevard. Sammy, the manager, great guy. Any bars that are cheaper than the standard $8 per drink? Good atmospheres anywhere? Let me know. Thanks.

P.S. Also, how bout italian restaurants?

Any other amazing spots (mountain lookouts, ocean spots, anything, etc.) I should know about, please reply. Thanks.

This site has really improved my life:
yelp.com

Sorry for giving you a website instead of actual recommendations, but if you haven't used this site, it's very helpful for everything.

8 bucks is cheap by LA standards. I think all the Hollywood clubs are lame... Head to downtown if you really want to have a good time with "normal" people.

Some of those are more expensive and some of them are a little tougher to get in.

As a former Minnesotan you should check out the Golden Gopher downtown.

Palermo in Los Feliz (on Vermont) is a fun Italian restaurant; there's also an old-school Italian place (complete with singing waiters) in Hollywood (it's on Las Palmas) that's fun and not too expensive.

Miceli's Restaurants - Hollywood and Universal City. "L.A.'s Oldest Italian Restaurant" - Home Page

I'm a native Minnesotan myself, and loved my time living in Hollywood. You should also just go wander around downtown during the daytime sometime - walking around Santee Alley in the Fashion District or up Broadway or through the Toy District is a lot of fun. Also check out Bronson Canyon - not too far from Hollywood - to see the Batman cave.

Oooh, careful about The Edison. Very expensive, strict dress code (no casual, absolutely no sneakers), as they're going for an old-style speakeasy atmosphere. So though it's fun to watch the crowd's not exactly..."bar"-ish. Still, it's a beautiful setting inside, and well worth at least one visit. They've got a website.
