THE CORNER BAR

More Bars:

January 24, 1991|JIM WASHBURN

Latka's Golden Glove Tavern, 5061 Warner Ave., Huntington Beach. Open daily, 11 to 2 a.m. (714) 846-9708. Though it's a far cheerier place than the biker bar it used to be, a fern would still probably die a fast death here. If you like your bars "rough" around the edges but full of nice people, owner and former boxer George Latka is the perfect host. In 55 pro bouts, the Boxing Professor had only six losses. Now he's a winner both behind the bar and in front of the camera, in everything from movies ("Raging Bull") to beer ads.
