El Carmen

Bar in West Hollywood & Mid-City

A pair of mounted bull heads and lucha libre (Mexican wrestling) masks create an over-the-top, ‘Tijuana North’ look and pull in an industry-heavy crowd at LA’s ultimate tequila tavern (over 300 to choose from). If you don't know an añejo from a reposado, do a tasting and find out (from $25), or just get a perfect tequila cocktail.

There's a short but mighty menu of tamales, tacos, enchiladas and sides.
