Chic imbibers luxuriate in a Belle Epoque setting of creamy marble surfaces, vintage mirrors and carved oak panels at this new bar and bistro by the hit makers behind L.A.’s Jones and The Roger Room. Up front is a beautifully composed Parisian brasserie-style bar and dining room, while those seeking an intimate corner can escape to the enclosed garden patio in the back. But the piece de resistance is bartender Brittney Olsen’s cocktail program of classic sparkling and signature cocktails, making every occasion a party.
The Drink to Drink: The Death in the Afternoon is a classic, and here it’s made with the bar’s house-made absinthe and Champagne.
Know Before You Go: If you don’t want to rely on being able to nab a first-come, first-served seat at the bar, reserve a table seat in the dining room just for drinking—no judgment, no dinner upselling.
