Count The Roger Room as one of the few bars in West Hollywood where guests don’t have to run a gauntlet of red velvet ropes, long lines and the impeccably dressed to get a drink. Owners Jared Meisler and Sean MacPherson wanted to create a laid-back spot for craft cocktails, and they’ve succeeded with this lightly circus-themed cocktail lounge.
The Drink to Drink: The Tijuana Brass has been on the menu since The Roger Room opened in 2009, and it’s still a good one. The easy sipper is made with tequila blanco, lime juice and agave nectar and topped with cucumber foam.
Know Before You Go: With no sign out front, it’s easy to miss the entrance. Just look for the door left of the psychic reader neon signs.
