Situated on the ground floor of the historic Gaylord Hotel, the HMS Bounty has changed both hands and names over the years, but its cozy, kitschy interior and charming nautical theme have remained solidly intact. Back in the day this was a regular hangout for the standard Hollywood elite, but also for the more politically-minded heavy hitters such as Winston Churchill and William Randolph Hearst. Now it’s a reliable option for cheap drinks, greasy bar food and the knowledge that you’re hanging out in a bar where they shot a few scenes of Mad Men.

Salty Dog, a venerable blend of vodka and grapefruit juice with a salt rim that might trick you into thinking you’re closer to the ocean than Koreatown actually is.
