There aren't a lot of easily accessible decent pre-show bars around the Forum in Inglewood that are in close proximity to the venue and parking lot. :)

But there's VIP bars downstairs in the Forum mezzanines. There's a entry fee though.

But that wouldn't give us very much time since doors only open an hour before the show.  There's got to be something, somewhere!

LOL, honest. There really isn't a great bar near the Forum. Trust me.

Best option is the mezzanine bars inside the venue.

LOL. There's a Sizzler. And an IHOP. And a number of soul food joints. Not much else that isn't antiquated with urban Angeleno decay. :)

BTW< for those not in the know....save your appetites for post-show street cart vendor bacon wrapped LA dogs. A finer hot dog on the west coast, there is not. Load up on two of those bad boys with all the trimmings and thank me later.

You got Stgaz's name wrong, man. ;)
What happened to Christo from Sydney and heavy(kiwi)kev?
Thanks mate! Yes, it is St Gaz - the ST is in honour of Simon Templar, The Robin Hood of modern crime!
Kev's already over there wreaking havoc, and I think Christo leaves soon. I leave Thursday. 30+ years of waiting are almost at an end!!!

That could work.  It looks like it's only a 10-15 minute walk away.

Looking at the website I don't see anything about reservations so we could probably just show up there.  At least one Yelp review said people met there before going to the Forum, so we wouldn't be the first.  Will there be other Rush fans?  Is anyone here on another forum or Facebook group and could check to see what those people are doing?  (This is my only forum.)
