Four Culver City Establishments Make Thrillist's List of the 24 Best Dive Bars in Los Angeles

Just go ahead and dub Culver City the Dive Bar Capital of the City. Evidence? When Thrillist assembled its look at the finest dive bars in Los Angeles, a full 16 percent of the bars were located in our fair burg. 

Scarlet Lady was called "The best dive for free homemade food," and the article added:

The Scarlet Lady tempts you with many of the usual trappings of a genuine dive bar: cheap and strong drinks, colorful clientele, unpolished karaoke, and well-worn pool tables. But where it really comes through strong is with regular appearances of homemade food (chili, hot dogs, nachos, breakfast burritos...), often times for free, or at least all you can eat for cheap.

Cinema Bar was named "The best 'I like my live music chill' dive." "Wanna go to a dive that's got live music, but don't wanna bring earplugs?" asked the article. "This Culver City spot has free bands nearly every night, most of whom fall into the gypsy jazz/swing/country/country-swing-gypsy-jazz realm, and not the OH-MY-GOD-I-STILL-CAN'T-HEAR-ANYTHING-THE-NEXT-DAY realm."

The Cozy Inn received recognition as the "Best dive for bar games," mostly for it's really nice "full-size shuffleboard." [Thanks to Culver City Times member Chris Grossman for the above photo.]

And finally, The Tattle Tale Room earned the appellation "Best bar with good karaoke." Continued the article:

What, you expected the Brass Monkey? Too busy. Dimples is closed (RIP). The Gaslamp is full of American Idol wannabes. But the Tattle Tale? You can usually sing a song from its massive list within an hour of walking in.

All in all, this is not a bad list of best dive bars in Culver City. Any that they missed?

Need more proof that Culver City is Dive Bar Central? Culver City establishments were also featured in Dive Bar lists in the LA Weekly and Serious Eats.
