Winner of the Campari One To Watch award 2021 at The World’s 50 Best Bars, Thunderbolt is a vibrant neighborhood cocktail bar located in Echo Park, serving electrifying cocktails and inviting bar snacks inspired by the American South. Thunderbolt is a place that becomes the regular, a place where cultures and communities combine.

With many deserving accolades already under its belt, Thunderbolt is one to watch. The bar is multifaceted in being inclusive, affordable, and intriguing – guests can pop into the relaxed atmosphere for a quick beer or alternatively spend an entire evening sitting on leather couches making their way through the list of approachable yet cutting-edge cocktails (or, the great list of non-alcoholic options).

Open Wednesday through Sunday, Thunderbolt doesn’t take reservations.
