This West Hollywood institution, with its rock ’n’ roll Rat Pack feel, was a celebrity hot spot when it opened in 1994. True story: Robert Plant and Johnny Cash dined there together. The bar has since mellowed into a chill place to grab the best apple pie in town and an approachable cocktail, especially one made by bartender Eric “ET” Tecosky, who has been behind the stick for more than 15 years.
The Drink to Drink: Dirty Martini—bar manager Eric “ET” Tecosky is also the proprietor of Dirty Sue olive juice.
Know Before You Go: If you’re going to order one thing to eat, make it the spaghetti and meatballs.
