New York City
What are the best places to grab late night drinks or a night cap in downtown Los Angeles? Will be there during the week and looking for a fun, casual atmosphere with good drink list.
Right now the best night life in the LA area is Downtown Los Angeles. As oppose to Hollywood its a bit less expensive and more condense with bars within walking distance of each other. Some of the best spots are rooftop bars Ace Hotel Los Angeles Perch and the Rooftop Pool The Standard Hotel. Along 7th street is colloquially called restaurant row with Bottega Louie SUGARFISH | Downtown LA and cheaper eats like The Counter. Faith & Flower is amazing for food and drinks a bit on the pricier side but well worth it!

Downtown is full of wild things, check out the The Edison Great prohibition era-20's vibe. Awesome cocktails and an even better vibe!
I stayed at the JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. LIVE and that's a great section in Downtown LA. There are a bunch of restaurants and bars that you can jump from. I'm not sure where in downtown you're staying, but here is some more info. http://www.lalive.com/
