The name alone is the first sign that people at Good Times At Davey Wayne's are there to enjoy themselves -- and the totally decked-out '70s-themed ambiance help make that anything-goes vibe a reality.
This speakeasy exudes a casual, house party-like atmosphere thanks to darkly lit hallways, comfy couches, and an outdoor patio with hammocks, ample seating and spiked sno-cones from the old-school camper posted up out back; there's plenty to talk about with whomever you meet there -- and a dance floor busting out old-school hits if you want to take it to the next-ish level.
Thankfully, there’s also a photo booth where you can find some privacy with your new fling.
Befitting its location, this raw, rock-feeling bar is equipped with a stellar guitar-leaning jukebox and roomy leather booths that open themselves up to group getting-to-know-yous or secluded face-sucking.
Heading towards the back, the wrap around lines for the bathroom are perfect for striking up awkward conversation, and the back patio’s sort of the spot to hit once you’ve hit paydirt.

Once inside, the bar's got plenty more to discuss, including live jazz music and burlesque performers on the weekends, as well as showcases from rock bands and the occasional tightrope-walker. This Southern-inspired saloon has a unique drink list -- including barrel-aged cocktails -- as well as suggestive house favorites like the very boozy Sex on the Bayou.
This lively, indoor/outdoor cocktail bar has become an Eastside respite for creative types, which means that the model-y person with the floppy hat you’ve been checking out while they dance to one of the venue’s rotating DJs is probably, uh, a model.

This always-hopping two-story bar from the Houston brothers evokes the World War II-era with factory-like details and suspender-clad bartenders serving up an innovative, always-changing cocktail list, with a separate, tiny R&D bar in the back the perfect place to strike up conversation with a new "friend" before moving over to the main room to watch a band or -- even better -- a suggestive, sexy burlesque show.
Allegedly a former bordello, the entrance to this huge bar -- which involves a bed, naturally -- means you’ve got an instant conversation starter with whomever you’ve been eying.
This divey whiskey bar is a prime destination for Pasadena singles based on the right combination of mood lighting (dimly lit, of course), feel-good tunes at a volume that’s conducive to conversation, and large liquor selection.
