Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Bursting with options from breweries to cocktail lounges to coffeehouses, this book has up-to-the-minute options, with the recent publication date of November 14th… For a true night on the town, Drink serves up routes for bar crawls in neighborhoods like Koreatown or Long Beach, where you can walk your way into a completely drunken state without fear of reprisal.”
LA Weekly Squid Ink

"Drink: Los Angeles includes more than 500 listings for great booze and juice bars, beer taprooms, wine stores, coffee houses, even boba shops. What you won't find: chain shops and eateries, and places that suck. They prefer to simply focus on the good and ignore the bad." — KPCC (NPR)

“The book is so good that it gives the barfly not just one but several reasons to toast its presence. First, its design: Gorgeous, simple, expertly laid out, carefully selected typefaces and graphic prompts. But also the little black and red semi-hardcover was built to fit into the hip pocket of a pedestrian on a pub crawl, and so couldn’t be more practical. The writing — and editing, overseen by Prospect Park founder and boss Colleen Dunn Bates — is of the highest order: Clear, informative, striking just the right tone of fun and frolic along with directions and criticism.”
—Larry Wilson, Pasadena Star-News

For the companion book, Eat: Los Angeles:

"We would follow this guide into hell" — Long Beach Press-Telegram

"So hyper-local it instantly claims a place in die-hard Angeleno's hearts" — Los Angeles Times

"I chose Eat: LA as a broadcast partner because of its good taste, sense of humor, and spirit of adventure" — John Rabe, host of KPCC's #1 weekend show, Off-Ramp

Read an Excerpt


Seemingly overnight, Los Angeles has become a fantastic drinking city. We’ve had great eating for decades, but no one would have put us first in the beverage department, except perhaps for horchata. Seattle had better coffee, Portland had better beer bars, Boston had better pubs, San Francisco and Chicago had better neighborhood bars, and New York had better cocktail lounges. Boy, have times changed.

This explosion in good drinking inspired us to take the Eat: Los Angeles concept to a new place and create this curated pocket guide to find the best drinking across the greater L.A. area, whether you’re thirsty for a boba or a beer. This is by no means a comprehensive guide—that would be so massive you couldn’t lift it. Drink: Los Angeles is, however, a broad-ranging book, in terms of geography, styles, and price points. Most of all, it’s a discerning one—we don’t have every single karaoke bar in Koreatown, for instance, but we point you toward our favorites. Our goal is to give you interesting, thoughtful, tasty choices in every category across L.A. County.

Here you’ll find the Why, What, and Who for L.A.’s best beverage sources, from cocktail bars and coffeehouses to craft breweries and cold-pressed juiceries, along with a bunch of great bar crawls, where you can imbibe without driving. Slainte!
