Located in the semi-industrial area of Glendale, across the street from the railroad tracks, The San Fernando whisks visitors back to a time when trains were the prefered method of travel. The throwback decor—repurposed old teak doors, Art Deco–inspired light fixtures and brushed metal accents—give the bar the feel of a train station watering hole. The drinks, however, showcase the latest trends and techniques and employ culinary elements with house-made shrubs and syrups.
The Drink To Drink: The best-selling cocktail, the Impostor, may be the perfect cure for the common cold with its cozy spiciness of jalapeño- and fennel-infused rye, house-made ginger-turmeric honey syrup and pressed lemon with a torched pepper garnish.
Know Before You Go: Smartphone running low on juice? No need to hand it over to the bartender for charging as there are discreet USB chargers under the bar.
