I heard there are only two bars in Westwood. Is that right? Where does everybody go on weekends? Do they drive into other parts of LA? I really like having a variety of bars of in walking distance, I think I'm spoiled too.
Yeah, only 2 bars in Westwood - O'Hara's (formerly Maloney's) and BrewCo. O'Hara's has liter night Tuesdays ($4) but it's best to arrive before 10 or there's a line. Personally, I prefer BrewCo. It's not that great of an atmosphere but it's fun to be around a bunch of other students, and there's karaoke and comedy and stuff. There's also a restaurant called Palomino's that has happy hour after 10 pm. There's the W, but drinks are ridiculously expensive (about $15/drink). There's a place called Busby's (on Santa Monica) that has a free limo-bus you can call and pick you up from your apartment in Westwood on Thursdays. If you want to go somewhere a little nicer, there are a ton of clubs and bars on Sunset. However, you'd have to take a cab for those. Cabs in LA are rare and expensive so share with as many people as possible.
