7. Villains Tavern
1356 Palmetto St; Downtown; 213.613.0766
Though it’s now partially covered with a circus tent (thanks to complaints from an overzealous, obviously very cool neighbor), a move which drops it down this list, Villains is the only spot that comes to mind where you can eat, drink, hear live music, and smoke (!!…?) semi-outdoors in the city.
