In the gateway to the Northern Territories sits one of LA’s truest old school dives, a place that’s looks as if it’s been serving up drinks under the same signage and to the same loyal customers since the days when it was surrounded by orange groves (probably the 1950s or so).  The Starlite Room is a place so welcoming that on the tour’s last visit, attendees were treated to supermarket bargain bin cake upon finding themselves in the midst of a regular’s somewhat depressing birthday party.

A quick scan of Starlite’s online reviews brings out exactly what any true dive bar devotee pines for — a bevy of one star ratings complaining of a jukebox with "like 2 modern CDs … Everything else was Patsy Cline, George Strait and Dean Martin", and a clientele of "weird people who look like characters that you wouldn’t want to encounter if your car broke down while driving by a small town."  Add in the cheap drinks and friendly service, and it’s clearly our kind of place.

As usual, the casual debauchery starts around 9PM and 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.
