Backstage is a Culver City bar staple. The 80-year-old dive across the street from Sony Studios has no cover, no minimum for groups, and one of the most underrated karaoke situations in town. Drinks are cheap, the bar food is better than it needs to be, and there’s even a fire pit in the back. Basically, you can show up with pretty much anybody at any time and you’re going to have a great night.
