"Frolic Room" Hollywood, CA - 1989
The Frolic Room, located next door to the Pantages Theater is arguably the most historic and quintessential dive bar in Hollywood. Open every day from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m., this watering-hole has gone through a variety of permutations over the years. It began serving as a private speakeasy lounge originally called Freddy’s, then opened to the public in 1934, as Bob’s Frolic Room.
Charles Bukowski made the Frolic Room a frequent stop. Both Frank Sinatra and Judy Garland also imbibed here. Howard Hughes owned both the Pantages and the bar from 1949 to 1954. He was the one who added the fabulous neon bar sign above the door.
Whenever you're in Hollywood and want a cocktail, go somewhere else; but if you want to do some serious day drinking, then go to The Frolic Room where it's done by professionals.
