4 Places to Grab a Drink in Silver Lake

Once a veritable no man’s land, Silver Lake has really come into its own, now offering a serious selection of bars and lounges to grab a drink. If you’re on the Eastside, be sure to check out one of these 4 spots.

The Virgil


It’s time to get old school with this one. The Virgil will make you feel like you’re in a 1920’s movie stuck in a saloon with tasty drinks. There are two parts to this bar, a more intimate side with a jukebox and then there’s the other side with a DJ or live music and a dance floor. They even sometimes have live comedy specials too. Which side of the bar will you be found hanging at?

Cha Cha Lounge


Looking for something a little bolder, low maintenance but still fun? Cha Cha Lounge might be it. Before becoming what it is now, the previous bar used to be a spot where drag queens performed. Immediately after opening the doors, you’ll feel like you walked into an old-school Mexican/Hawaiian party of some sort.

The local bar offers a pleasant and warm atmosphere within it’s cutely decorated interior walls and furniture in hopes to make the bar feel, you know cozy like you’re at your friend’s place.
