For all you new (and old) Trojans and Bruins looking to get your drink on, check out Thrillist's list of the best bars near USC and UCLA.

Longtime Trojans are familiar with the 901 Bar (aka "The Nine O") on Figueroa and "Traddies" on campus, but here's a newsflash: there are at least 10 other bars near USC that are worth a visit! Seven Grand offers superb whiskey and bourbon cocktails (try the Cranberry Rose!) in downtown L.A.; Casey's Irish Pub has a very laid-back vibe, sometimes live music and great bar snacks; and the Standard Hotel has probably the best view of downtown from its rooftop bar.

Over near Westwood, there's more than just the longstanding O'Hara's (aka Maloney’s). Dance and play beer pong at Busby's West in Santa Monica; enjoy $3 draft and bottled beers at Mom's Bar; and visit the W Hotel's Whiskey Blue for a more sophisticated-lounge night out with friends.
