Even if you’ve never been to The Short Stop, a dive bar in Echo Park that’s ubiquitous among Los Angeles hipsters, you might know that it takes its name from its proximity to Dodger Stadium. You might have even heard something about the bar’s colorful history. What you might not know, however, is that The Short Stop is no ordinary dive bar. It’s the bar Dodgers players stop by as they head home after a game. It’s where you can rub elbows with some of the coolest hipsters in the city as you wait at the bar for your drinks, which are modestly priced regardless of whether you ordered a cocktail or a can of PBR. And, above all, it’s a great place to go for a night of dancing with the girls. Head over with your girlfriends during the week, and you’ll appreciate the bar’s charming amenities, which include a pool table, a pinball machine, and an old-school photo booth. If you’re looking to dance, the awesome DJs who spin nightly at The Short Stop are sure to play the perfect song. Come in on a whim to be surprised by the music that plays as you enter, which could be anything from remixed indie tracks of today to throwbacks from the ’80s and ’90s. Or do your research and gather your girls for one of the bar’s theme nights, such as Motown Monday or Sunday Funk Night. The best part? The Short Stop’s central location makes it the perfect place to start night out on the town, with dozens of restaurants, nightclubs, and other evening hot spots right in the neighborhood, so your fun doesn’t have to end when the DJ stops spinning. Whether you make it your main destination for the evening, or just use it as the starting point to a wild night with the girls in greater Los Angeles, be sure to head down to The Short Stop. You might not manage to rub elbows with the Dodgers, but you’re sure to be dancing before the night is done.
