Mid-Wilshire Sports Bar

My friends and I are meeting up to watch some hoops and eat some cheap bar food after work. The half-way point for us seems to be the Mid-Wilshire area. Can anyone recommend a good (but cheap happy hour) sports bar in the mid-wilshire area? Thanks for your suggestions.

  1. Palm Tree in Koreatown...although I don't know if that qualifies as mid-Wilshire. 3240 Wilshire Blvd. @ Vermont Ave. They usually have the games on, pretty good Korean fried chicken ("tong dak"), and other fried bar food that you probably should eat less of.

    1. Tom Bergin's on Fairfax just south of Wilshire (by the Peterson Auto Museum) is my favorite sports bar in LA. It's a super old, and old-school Irish pub with great bar food, friendly staff, and a lively crowd. I have watched many a college football game there. If you get a chance to drop in for any Red Sox game you will be rewarded with a truly great time. Strongly recommended. ©

      1. Busby's has a new location on Wilshire....

        1. do yourself a favor and stay away from mid wilshire if you're a sports fan...people are more concerned with showbiz and you will have a hard time finding any decent sports bar in the area. move west, or east into downtown LA to casey's, flower street bar and grill, or the fox sports bar. it'll be worth the extra drive time.

          1. Don't forget Barney's, which isn't too far away from mid-Wilshire. Even better, I really like the Farmer's Market bars. Depending on the crowd and game you want to see, the bartenders will show the game you want. And you're outside.
