Welcome to perhaps one of the most thoughtful bars around. Not only does this Downtown L.A. watering hole offer a USB port and shelf under the bar to charge your smartphone, but at closing time it offers brownies to the last guests standing. The cocktails by bartender Dee Ann Quinones (formerly of New York’s Booker & Dax) are unique takes on classics, like an Espresso Martini made with real espresso and served in a coffee cup Martini glass.
The Drink to Drink: Sinatra and Chanel with Monkey Shoulder scotch, coco palm, frankincense and sour cherry bitters.
Know Before You Go: Like to watch chefs do their thing? Sit in the center of the bar and right in front of the food prep area to get yourself a good show.
