Los Angeles Haunted Hayride
Each year, the grounds of the Old Zoo at Griffith Park are turned into a bone-chilling, blood-curdling scene of terror during Halloween. For 2013, the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride’s spectacles are based on actual events, relying on true stories of hauntings throughout history to terrify even the most skeptical attendees. When you go, don’t forget to check out the In Between, which was deemed the scariest maze in Los Angeles in 2012. After an evening here, your knees will be too weak for you to stand, let alone drive! Let a cab bring you and your pounding heart home safely.
The Hollywood Museum Dungeon of Doom
The Hollywood Museum is home to the world’s largest collection of Hollywood memorabilia, including costumes, props, personal artifacts, and more. While the upper levels of the museum are suitable for most people, only the bravest souls venture into the basement where the Dungeon of Doom is located. Here, you’ll walk through the actual prison corridor from Silence of the Lambs and see Dr. Hannibal Lecter’s jail cell. You’ll also find costumes and props from your favorite horror characters like Freddy Krueger, Jason, Chucky, and more!

Los Angeles is one of the most exciting cities in the country—but it can also be quite a stressful place to live! The iconic Southern California city is fast-paced and competitive, and can be a bit overwhelming at times. When you are feeling the stresses of city life, it might be time to unwind with a few friends at a bar in Hollywood during happy hour. Taking a cab to happy hour is the fastest and safest way for you to begin your relaxation time! Read on to learn about a few must-visit happy hours in Hollywood.
The Parlour Room The Parlour Room occupies a space that was once home to a decidedly unrefined dive bar. Things have changed, and the Parlour Room is now a casual yet upscale watering hole featuring a private brick patio and vintage décor that tips its cap to the early days of Hollywood. Happy hour is served up until 10:00 pm every night, with drink specials like a $5 martini. Parking in the area is limited and rather expensive, so call a cab to take you to this Hollywood gem.
The Three Clubs
If you’ve ever seen the movie Swingers, you’ve already had a close-up look at the Three Clubs, as most of the bar scenes were shot in this Hollywood lounge. The Three Clubs is home to a great jukebox as well as live entertainment. Happy hour runs from 6:00 pm until the bar closes and features affordable and strong well drinks. If you imbibe, always rely on a taxi to get you home safely.
Lucky Strike Lanes
When you want your happy hour to come with a little bit of action, head over to Lucky Strike Lanes, the only bowling alley in Hollywood. Happy hour takes place Monday through Friday from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm, with great deals on domestic beers, well drinks, shots, and even martinis. Take your cue from The Big Lebowski and order yourself a White Russian while bowling the evening away!
