    I happened across Betty’s Bar across from Buggy Works this afternoon and was wondering if anyone knew anything about it (no, not Lessner’s Betty’s on High Street). It seemed like it was still in business but the most I could find online were a couple reviews on Citysearch that were a little outdated. Does anyone know anything about this place?

    I heard that it closed. It would be nice to find out that was a rumor, that place was amazing.

    Definitely still open. Stopped in for a drink after the Clippers game on Tuesday night. Definite dive bar, no draft beer, but a patio out back.

    I remember hearing a rumor about this place, and maybe you can dispel it for me.

    is it true the waitstaff wears a bathing suit?

    any idea what hours they’re open?

    I don’t know how many of you know this, but there’s a Betty’s Bar that’s not part of the family of Liz Lessner restaurants. Tucked behind Huntington Park is a humble bar that probably gets patrons of the skinny jean, black-rimmed glasses variety only if a band of the Animal Collective ilk hits the stage at the LC. And maybe not even then.

    We went Friday night at 11pm and it was closed. But there is a great view of downtown from the back patio.

    Probably not for too much longer. I think the new FBI building is going to block some/most of that view…
