Top 6 L.A. Bars For Day Drinking
By: Mathew Kang   |  Email: mathewkang@la.eater.com

It's Memorial Day weekend! What better time to practice that ancient art of drinking while the sun is still up. Actually, here in Los Angeles, the world capital of atypical work schedules we need reliable day bars all the time.

The impetus behind day drinking comes in two forms: 1) consuming liquid sunshine in the actual sunshine or 2) pretending sunshine doesn't exist. We're celebrating some of the former but mostly the latter. In fact, to be honest, we like dark indoor spots where no one we know is likely to find us. And hey, if they open early that's even better. So here are the 10 best L.A. bars that offer welcome respite from the cruel world (and are open by noon at the latest).

1. Prince O' Whales
The P.O. W. is for those days that you don't quite make it to the beach. Like, you get within three blocks and decide that it's just more fun to be drinking inside. This Play Del Rey institution has been buttressing the Ballona Wetlands for decades and plying locals with standard sports-bar grub. The beauty of the place is in exactly how homey and, dare-we-say, Cheers-like it is. $7 beer and burger special? Such a great way to start a day-bender. 335 Culver Blvd., 90293; (310) 823-9826



2. Redwood Bar and Grill
After an annoying pop cultural upswing pirates are getting kind of annoying, so it's better if you consider Redwood more of a Goonies bar than a swashbuckling one. Perfect for those days where you're all, "I'd love to get drunk at Disneyland in the late '70s, but I don't want to drive, be around people, or be at Disneyland." The food's "meh", but the drinks are fierce and the day staff seems oddly happy to be there. 316 W 2nd St., 90012; (213) 680-2600



3. Red Lion Tavern
While the weird mumble-crooning downstairs rules the evening, the beergarden rules the day. It's brighter than a basement, but not too bright and it's still got that Bavarian brashness that makes it a whole day spent wasted well worth it. 2366 Glendale Blvd., 90039; (323) 662-5337



4. Jay-Dee Cafe
This one is completely under the radar, but hopefully it won't stay that way. It's basically a concrete box in Alhambra, but I can't think of a better place to shut out the sunlight in that part of town. The cocktails are so cheap that will need their perfect patty melt to cushion them, and their staff's so friendly you'll forget you drove this far East on the 10. Never fear: Jay-Dee's got you covered until dusk. 1843 W Main St., 91801; (626) 281-6887



5. Cozy Inn
The Cozy Inn is a magical place full of shuffleboard and cheap hooch. Day boozing at Cozy starts at 6am, so be sure to set your alarm. The regulars have their fishing photos on the wall like something out of a Hemingway - Bukowski novel mashup. Where in hipper parts does such a thing happen? Nowhere. Sure, the staff is occasionally gruff, but what loving dysfunctional family isn't? 11155 Washington Pl.,90232; (310) 838-3826



6. The Cork
Man, The Cork. Such a great spot for mid-day juicing. It recent years its prices have gone up and it has taken on an overall more professional sheen, but shoot, it's still got it. Fried comfort food, drinks as stiff as a preacher's collar, and an amazing jukebox. The staff is all smiles and the daytime clientele is decidedly old-school. 4771 W Adams Blvd., 90016; (323) 731-2030
