The folks behind many of downtown’s hottest cocktail spots, 213 Hospitality, collaborated with renowned barmen Eric Alperin (The Varnish) and Richard Boccato (New York City’s Dutch Kills) for this Mediterranean-inspired neighborhood café and bar. Even with high-caliber bartenders, the beverage program trades fancy cocktails for simple classics and 18 taps of wine, craft beer, cider and cocktails like the Aperol Spritz to accompany the casual vibe.
The Drink To Drink: Lambrusco on tap! This alone makes Bar Clacson both the best place to start the evening and end it. When you just want something low-key and easy drinking.
Know Before You Go: Tired of darts, pool and other same-old bar games? Bar Clacson is home to the first indoor pétanque court in L.A., which is conveniently mere steps away from the bar.
