The Burgundy Room on Los Angeles’ Cahuenga Boulevard is a small, comfortable dive bar amidst the relative street hustle of tourist-heavy Hollywood. The name, so it seems, comes from the heavily-colored deep red bar stools, candles and lighting that accents the interior, and would give the impression that this is laid-back, jazzy bar, but far from it. The Burgundy Room rocks a host of live deejays that spin mostly metal, hip hop, punk and rock inside the dim, tiny space. Crowds can form quickly as lines for the bar get deep, and the long bathroom line can make for even more excruciating waits. The limited floor space also means dancing isn’t likely to take place; locals instead opt to drink and chat with friends over the din of the nearby tunes.
