The History of the Short Stop Bar in Echo Park



WARNING: THIS VIDEO CONTAINS GRAPHIC CRIME SCENE PHOTOGRAPHY THAT MAY NOT BE SUITABLE FOR ALL VIEWERS.

On the far eastern end of Sunset Boulevard, hidden from prying eyes by the ivy-covered cliffs made by the railroad in the 19th century, sits one of the most notorious bars in Los Angeles... The Short Stop.

In honor of opening day at Dodger Stadium, let's lift a pint to this neighborhood mainstay, a building that's stood since 1925 and its strange disturbing history.

Share it with anyone you've shared a drink with at the Short Stop!
