10. Casey's Irish Pub

A pub in the truest sense, Casey’s menu rocks the basics and then some: mini pot pies, wings, fries and even French Dips, from Cole’s (which has the same owner).

When the back room features live music, it really rocks too, with everything from tribute bands to DTLA art outfits. 613 S Grand Ave, Downtown, 90017. (213) 629-2353

Barrio Tiger at Velvet Margarita.

9. Velvet Margarita

Mexican restaurant Velvet Margarita has always featured top-notch DJs, but they've just started featuring bands on their patio during their "Cahuenga Block Party, " a summer shindig co-promoted with St. Felix (where yours truly deejays).

Those parties have been so successful, we've learned, that Velvet will have more live rock and roll on its patio this summer. 1612 N Cahuenga Blvd, Hollywood, 90028. (323) 469-2000

Good Times at Davey Waynes.

Barrio Tiger at Velvet Margarita.If The Brady kids had a wild alcohol-soaked house party while Mike and Carol were out of town, it would feel something like this themed Houston Brothers bar, right down to the live music stage.

Retro-style rockin' goes down here weekly, and the colorful drinks served compliment the music in a very groovy way, as Marsha might say. Plus, there’s a barbeque out on the patio that would make Sam the Butcher proud. 1611 N El Centro Ave, Hollywood, 90028. (323) 962-3804

Blackfeather Jane at Loaded.

7. Loaded

Loaded is aptly named, both for the liquor and the flavorful menu. Meanwhile, live rocking goes down nightly.

Just don’t overload here, or those skinny jeans and tees won't fit. 6377 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, 90028, (323) 963-4655

Good Times at Davey Waynes.6. Dresden Room

The Dresden Room is an L.A. institution for food, drink and jazzy, pizzazzy live sounds. The main attraction, of course, is dynamic geriatric duo Marty and Elyane.

They still rock the Bees Gees' "Stayin' Alive" if you request it. But don't ask anyone here about the movie Swingers. That's too old school. 1760 N Vermont Ave, Los Feliz, 90027. (323) 665-4294

Tribute to ZZ Top at E Cid.

5. El Cid

The famed Flamenco shows here are still stompin', as are the Sunday Brunches, but the live music nights are what continue to attract ravenous crooners and jammers to this Silver Lake landmark.

Monday open mics are a mixed bag, while Tuesdays get jazzy with a supperclub vibe. We love the Tapas and twang twofer of Honky Tonk Hacienda (monthly weekly Thursdays). Occasional burlesque babe-a-thons and local rock bills spice up Cid’s calendar regularly, as well. 4212 Sunset Blvd, Silver Lake, CA. (323) 668-0318
