20 Places to Hangout in L.A. That Have Excellent Air Conditioning

Posted by

Let’s not beat around the bush.

It’s freaking hot outside otherwise you wouldn’t have even bothered clicking on this blog post.


To that end, what we’ve got below is pretty simple… just a big link list of ideas for places hang out where the air-conditioning will be cranking all day (and night in cases).

If happen to not have air-conditioning at your present abode, well, then this list might be a godsend. If you do have A/C but desperately need to break out of the house, well, you might consider hanging out at one of the items catalogued here.

Either way, stay frosty!
