Melrose Umbrella Co.

Located on Melrose Avenue, the hip stretch populated with a range of bars from dive to sports bar to gastropub, this coffeehouse/cocktail bar is currently the only spot in the hood offering craft cocktails. It also happens to be a favorite bartender’s hangout. Credit the lively bar team of top L.A. bartenders, the dedicated Old Fashioned cocktail menu and the always-flowing fernet on tap.

The Drink to Drink: Everyone’s all about the Mezcali Me Banana, made with mezcal, agave, banana, prickly pear, grapefruit, lime, a serrano-habanero salt rim and a charred rosemary sprig.

Know Before You Go: The bar opens every day at 9 a.m. but as a coffeehouse serving up espresso and tea drinks until 5 p.m.
