3rd Base LA
Near the Pride Parade, check out 3rd Base LA, one of Hollywood’s elevated sports bars that is located right on Cahuenga where the parade will take place. It’s the perfect location for a group to stop in and enjoy some food and drinks. Also, The Margarita Trees are in partnership with Patron and feature four bright, colorful margarita flavors (strawberry, prickly pear, passion fruit, and Dodger blue margaritas hanging in mini patron bottles) that are displayed on a large “tree”, which makes it a super insta-worthy group drink order. For the whole month of June, 3rd Base LA will be donating a portion of Margarita Tree proceeds to LA Pride.
