L.A.'s Legendary Libations

January 01, 2019

New Year’s is one of the best excuses to explore Hollywood’s bar scene. But there’s no reason to only explore on New Year’s. Here are some top spots for L.A.-style libations. In 1960s Chicago a man opened a spot called The Know Where Bar. Today, his grandson continues the tradition in Los Angeles with a ‘30s-inspired bar focused on experience. Stop by for one of the nightly specials like Mad About Martinis or Whiskey the Way You Want It. Take a trip across the country at Sassafras where the streets and flavors of the Deep South merge expertly with the nightlife of Hollywood. Sip on specialty cocktails like Baby’s Got Sauce or Peach for Hours while pretending to be on the opposite coast. Originally started in New York, Employees Only is the quintessential speakeasy-style spot to satiate your cravings. With a menu of EO classics and L.A. inspired extras —try Ready, Fire, Aim! shaken up with mezcal, honey-pineapple syrup, pink peppercorn, fresh lime juice, and hellfire bitters — you’re sure to find something to satisfy!
