21. The Parlor

Address: 7250 Melrose Ave. #1

When The Parlor opened, it was dubbed “trendy” by the L.A. gods, which of course, immediately ruined it. It used to be El Guapo, a well-known frat hub. While the name has changed, the bar has merely shifted into an older, bourgeois frat hub. Here are the kind of Hollywood-wannabe guys who flash their oversized watches and tribal tattoos to attract women. To make matters worse, this place is slowly turning into a Baltimore Ravens bar. Proceed at your own risk.
