Gotta Drank! Oldfields Liquor Room

Situated on Venice Boulevard between Overland and Sepulveda is a randomly small but cool joint called Oldfields Liquor Room.  I found them online after doing a search for late Happy Hour and Oldfields has specials from 5:00-9:00 PM of $7 cocktails and $5 beers.  There's plenty of street parking and the place has a great, been there A LONG time feel with the tiled floors and walls.  It was extremely dark inside, the space barely lit by candles on the tables.  The bartender was super cool and the vibe very chill with all kinds of tracks from 2010 bumping like MGMT, The White Stripes, The Strokes, The Killers and some 2004 Bloc Party.  Having recently discovered the magic of Mules, Oldfields has a section of their menu dedicated to them where you pick a liquor and they top it off with their house made ginger beer.  Instead of a copper goblet they were served in an old metal cup you'd think to find in a 1950's hospital.  There's no food beyond Hot Dogs but they're totally cool with you having something delivered or bringing grub in.  The party next to us had pizza dropped off while a buddy of mine walked a few blocks to McDonald's and came back with a huge bag of deliciousness in the forms of McNuggets, Double Cheeseburgers and McChicken sammiches.

Oh yeah, they also do huge punch bowls of dranks:
