Clifton’s Cafeteria

Clifton’s Cafeteria

Appears in 1 Collection

The most significant improvement at the recently renovated Downtown L.A. institution Clifton’s Cafeteria is the drink situation. Where the iconic eatery only had a cafeteria before, thanks to nightlife proprietor Andrew Meieran, it now has two new craft cocktail bars: the California-inspired Monarch Bar downstairs and the nightclub cocktail lounge, Gothic Bar, upstairs. There are plans to build three more bars soon.

The Drink to Drink: Gothic Bar’s Something Wicked, with rye, mezcal, Angostura bitters and mole bitters.

Know Before You Go: The corner booth in Gothic Bar is where the first science-fiction club met. Its members included Ray Bradbury and L. Ron Hubbard.
