13. Bar Lubitsch
Address: 7702 Santa Monica Blvd., West Hollywood
Bar Lubitsch is desperate to come off as hip and trendy. It worked when it first opened, but now the crowd has gone downhill. Here, you're likely to find an all-white clientele gladly paying for $20 shots and sweating on each other because Bar Lubitsch doesn't believe in A/C. Drinks constantly tumble from damp hands, resulting in broken glass all over the floor. And then it's so dark and dingy inside, it's impossible to notice that you're stepping on shards of glass, or that this place is full of young Hollywood wannabes. When the lights come on at closing time, you want to scream. You'll be walking home alone to sleep off the shame.
