8 of 11:
Employees Only Los Angeles

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.
