The 1970s decor, fridge-door entrance, and inventive drinks of Good Times at Davey Wayne’s have cemented it as L.A.’s coolest bar scene. Expect long lines on peak nights, but the wait is well worth it once you get inside and take a seat on a plaid-cushioned couch, booze-soaked snow cone in hand. The place was decorated to feel like a living room straight out of the groovy decade, with ceiling rugs, vinyl, and garage-sale finds accenting the entryway, plus an Airstream trailer and hammocks for relaxing on the patio. The DJ, too, keeps to theme by spinning old-school records by the Bee Gees, among plenty of others.
