The LA nightlife scene is as vibrant as ever, as proven by our just-released 2013 Survey. We have everything from themed drinking spots to the best gay bars, dance clubs and karaoke kings around town, but the bar - a great watering hole - is where it all begins. We've had a lot of great new places open this year with more debuting every week, but many long-standing favorites (tiki drinks, rum bars and dives, oh my!) top our 10 Best Bars list. Click through the slide show to see the list, pick up your copy of the book here and be sure to go vote for your favorites on Google+ Local.
