Little Joy Cocktails
1477 W. Sunset Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90026

With Los Angeles being one of the most "single" cities in America you more than likely spent this past weekend protesting the corporatism of Valentine’s Day, convincing yourself that there is more to life than roses, chocolate hearts, and Garry Marshall films. "True love exists only inside an ice-cold can of Schlitz served by a bartender who opens it with a bowie knife," you told yourself. Perhaps you reminisced that it was under the sagging ceiling of a dark Echo Park groggery where you shared a deep connection with eclectic men and women who exemplified the bar’s namesake.

You were pining for Little Joy Cocktails, the dilapidated Sunset dive where loneliness and despair make the drinks taste better and where there’s always room on the walls to carve or paint the profane word or phrase that best describes your state of mind. Come prepared with thick-soled shoes and at least a tenner (enough for 3 beers). The cheap drinks and cozy ambiance are a solid alternative to a night at home listening to Eric Carmen and watching The Deer Hunter.

As usual, the casual debauchery starts around 9PM an gets really interesting by 10:00. Come for one drink, or stay for one too many. Bring anyone and everyone, and join us for a great time in the middle of the week. If you arrive early or late, look for the people having a damn good time (it’ll be us), or start having a damn good time on your own (we’ll find you).

Carpe Drink’em!

The World Dive Bar Tour is your bi- weekly, Wednesday night stop for adventure, drinks, and professional networking in Los Angeles. 2012 will offer an eclectic lineup of seedy and swanky joints to soften your liver and relax your inhibitions, and an in-your-face assortment of auxiliary events, just in case 25 different bars in one year wasn't enough.
