Literary themed bars in LA pay tribute to great American authors and the city's rich history in literature, from Bukowski's dispatches from Skid Row flophouses and Ellroy's gritty LA noir to Bradbury's cosmic trips to the unknown. In fact, there are three "Library Bars" throughout LA, in addition to a few others named after famous books and authors. These bookshelf-lined bars, with their sophisticated atmosphere reminiscent of sipping Scotch in an old study, promote social interaction and existential musings.
