I arrived in LA yesterday. We were going to go to another bar to watch the sunset but three was no space. My colleague recommended a dive bar that he goes to. I was not even sure what a dive bar was. Its more like a smaller pub in the UK. Not like a chain. A lot of locals. It... More

Ercoles is a wonderful, really old, hometown bar. We've been stopping in about once a month since 1967! Yikes, should I admit that? Everyone is very friendly, seats are a bit hard, but that's part of the fun.

Ercoles ("UHR-co-lees") has been in the same location since 1927. It is a bar with a limited menu of food (but check our Wednesdays, featuring 2-for-1 burgers, and Tuesdays and Thursdays featuring chicken or steak tacos). Lots of locals, but also friendly for visitors.

This is a landmark in downtown MB ... and it is what it is ... A dive bar, fantastic drinks, great bar food, and fantastic people watching. Not young crowd, but if you want any of the above ... a great place to hangout.
