• The Best Bar in West USA 2022, sponsored by Asahi Super Dry

Thunderbolt, a cocktail destination at the intersection of Historic Filipinotown, Echo Park and Downtown Los Angeles, offers a deliciously approachable cocktail list and Southern-inspired food menu. An open patio, light pink highlights amid dark green walls with orange stools and brown leather upholstery give it that Southern California feel. Canned cocktails, at least one frozen cocktail selection and an extensive by-the-bottle offer, including a vast selection of Madeira, feature here. As the Campari One To Watch in The World’s 50 Best Bars 2021, Thunderbolt is also a neighbourhood bar with plenty of local regulars that make it a venue that’s here to stay.
