Naja's Place is one of my favorite spots in LA. One trip I actually booked a hotel nearby, so I wouldn't need to drive after hanging out here.

Selection is exceptional. They have 88 taps with something for everyone. Beers range from macro (Coords, Amstel, Miller) to more popular craft (Lagunitas IPA, Arrogant Bastard, Fat Tire) to hard to get stuff (Russian River, Lost Abbey Angel's Share). A lot of local breweries are represented (big and small), but there are also a lot of beers from all over the US, Belgium, Germany (and a few other countries). The tap selection is so good, that I never paid any attention to bottles. I can't imagine not being able to find something here (regardless of my mood). I usually spend some time creating a line up of what I'll order based on a number of factors, and it's a bit hard to narrow down the list at Naja's. At appears that they now have an almost live picture of there beer list on their website.

I have no issues with quality. Everything I had was without any issues. Didn't have any food on any of my visits, so I can't comment on that (but it looked good).

I always found service very pleasant. I like their system - everybody's lining up to the main spot at the bar (no table service). Beers are organized on the board by color by price. Very efficient. Bartenders are attentive. In all my experiences they've been professional and friendly.

The place is right on the boardwalk, which makes it absolutely beautiful during sunset hours. I'm not sure I would call Naja's Place a dive bar, but it's definitely very unpretentious and relaxed spot. There was sometimes live music (but I am not sure if it's a regular thing). The place was never too crowded. There is a main area with tables, main bar area, music stage, and a much smaller and quieter spot in the back of the bar (it seemed to me that that's where most regulars are concentrated - I preferred it because music is not so loud there).

Great spot to have a beer!

It's really hard to rate this place. The selection is obviously incredible and the best around hands down. But the crowd/atmosphere is not so great and seemingly not there for the ridiculous beer selection. I prefer going when it's less crowded so I can just chill out and really enjoy what I'm tasting.
