A popular neighborhood hangout, Mom’s Bar ranks high as one of the leading places in town to play table tennis.

The pub, that’s been an L.A. fixture since the 1950s, also features a pool table and classic photo booth. Its cocktail menu stirs up such exotic tastes as cucumber vodka mixes, Kahlua blends and fruit liqueurs at yesterday’s prices. Should the guest DJ decide to take a break, music played on the vintage jukebox will likely take you back in time to a memory-provoking period. Don’t forget to peek inside the back room, where stand-up comedy or another live show could be in full effect.
