17. The Rooftop Bar at The Standard

Address: 550 South Flower St.

Admittedly, The Rooftop Bar at The Standard has one of the most incredible views you can find in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, someone went and told every pretentious Hollywood asshole in town. There are way too many Affliction tees and silicone-injected body parts going around to be worth the line, the $20 cover, and the $15 well drinks. This crowd can talk all they want about breaking into “the biz” or scoring a record deal, but nobody looks cool getting in or out of the bar's waterbed mattress pod chairs.
