Foursquare Tips

  • LA Weekly's Best of LA 2010 pick - Best Bar You All Ruined!
  • The Shortstop features old cop memorabilia, a great pool table, a photo booth, and great drinks. It's a sprawling space that's great for meeting all your friends. -Ashley Merriman, Top Chef
  • Short Stop has the dive bar essentials: Pool table? Check. Jukebox and tiny dance floor? Check. A clientele who'd rather be here than head back home? Triple check.
  • If you like drinking $2 beer's before the Dodger game then the Short Stop is your kind of bar. Once a favorite hangout for the LAPD it is now a spot for Dodger fans, locals and hipsters.
  • I want salsa dammit!!!
  • $2 PBR before the game!
  • Get a Bud and a shot of Beam for $5
  • Best happy hour - $3 for PBR/well drinks. DOWN.
  • Love this bar! Pool, great music and tiny out door area in the back
  • Good bar staff, cheap drinks. That's pretty much all I need.
  • Hip hop wednesdays! Usually
  • Make fun of dodgers fans
  • That first step on the dance floor is a doozy...
  • On busier nights, look for the tamale guy! He stops in, peddling deliciously cheap tamales to the incredibly tipsy crowd. Ol!
  • Cropdusted at the jukebox.... In a nutshell. That explains this bar.
  • Joe is awesome bartender!
  • Saturday night DJ is never as good as you'd hope him to be. Go for the crowd.
  • Come on a Wednesday and try to avoid the big dancing white guy.
  • use the iPhone app, remote to control the jukebox. others can vote on various choices to move up in the playlist queue.
  • Watch out for vertigo. When the disco ball is going you feel like you are inside a snow globe.
