Wow so it was announced today that Stinkers was closed after only about a year in business.

To quote my gf "it was too ironic and kitschy for it's own damn good"

Skunks are part of the decor... »

This place rocks! I love it. Yes you will have to pay $5.00 for an Iron City or Old German--but here's an idea: Don't order the overpriced cheap beers (yes I know that's an oxymoron) and instead order the overpriced good beers--just like you do at every other bar in LA! Then sit back with your overpriced good beer and enjoy the skunk spray, the truck horns and the Burt Reynolds poster in the girls' room.

A themed dive bar. With animatronic skunks. »

Ummm...its like they went out of their way to make it extra crappy but everything is brand new. I didn't find anything that great about this place except they have shitty beers from all over the world including my personal shitty beers of choice Iron City and Old German...all the way from Pittsburgh.

However, an Old German cost me $5. In the burg it cost me 75 cents for a 20 oz glass. Maybe $1.50 if it wasn't on special.

They have skunks that shoot steam out of their bums when the bartender pulls a chord from behind the bar that also makes a trucker horn go off.

It was loud enough that it also made me go off a little in the rear of my pants. It was a short night out. :(

i just hit this new spot up last night. it has the typical silver lake crowd, with a little weho influx. i give props to the super extensive design and appreciate that it is not trying to be a dive. my friend said it almost felt like a vegas bar with all the attention to theme. there is a lively vibe from the bartenders, with their cb-radio announcements and air-horn blasts, which is cool. i would definitely take folks from out of town to this place.

BUT, $4 for a pabst blue ribbon is a disgrace. the fact that they also have iron city (pittsburgh stand-by) and olympia (seattle local staple) kind of makes up for it. my other issue is that this place is fun and funny, but there is nothing to do except drink. no games, no dancing, no engaging gimmick. that's typical LA bullshit though. i really need a pool table or some f-ing shuffle board in this place. the rowdiness is cool, but let ME get rowdy too!

pricey, fun, possible flash-in-the-pan. check it out once at least.
