The team behind one of the best bars in the world finally opened up an outpost in L.A. And despite locations in New York, Singapore, Hong Kong and Miami, co-founder Dushan Zaric calls it the best Employees Only yet. With its next-level SoCal-inspired cocktails, a full-service restaurant and a speakeasy bar in the back featuring premium cocktails, he’s not wrong.
The Drink to Drink: The Hope Monkey is a crushable cocktail of makrut-lime-infused Gin Mare, lime cordial and house-made absinthe bitters. The danger lies in how easy it is to put away.
Know Before You Go: To gain access to Henry’s Room, the hidden New Orleans–inspired bar in the back, make a reservation on the Resy app. But make sure to book a seat at the bartender’s table, the best perch for watching and engaging with the bartender.
