‘Some People Call Me Maurice’: Best Los Angeles theme bars

(CNN) — You can pretend you’re totally someone else at any bar after enough drinks.

But to pretend you’re totally somewhere else?

The transportive kind.

With, say, exotic opium den decor and a last-call gong.

Or vintage 1970s home furnishings and a dude in a mustache serving loaded sno-cones out of an old Airstream in the back.
