Cheapest Dive Bar near the Wiltern?

Going to see the Pogues tonight and want to show up fashionably juiced up. I'm thinkin the Frank'n'Hank but that's a bit of a walk. Anything closer?

    across the street, kinda hidden, is a place called New York, New York.

    its a korean place, but they have booze and should speak english

      I think the ghetto cooler would set the tone for the evening beautifully. You can always visit Woo Lae Oak's bar on Western (almost katty-corner to the Wiltern)--not quite a dive--but it's close by. I'll be at the show, too. I can't wait!

          If I'm not mistaken, Woo Lae Oak's been closed for a while.....

            yes, they're developing a new "courtyard."

          you expecting to get much closer than 1.5 blocks (hank and franks)?! good luck! i guess you could always booze it up in a ghetto cooler at the ralphs parking lot.

              LOL--I thought F'n'H was at 3rd. Now realize it's at 5th.
