    This bar is one of my favorites! Nothing compares to their signature cocktail The Thirsty Crow! Plus they play great music! Also a pretty bomb sazerac if your into that kind of thing...  mixology

    For a cocktail lovers, try the Thirsty Crow, a mix of Sazerac rye, citrus, bitters, and ginger beer with a lemon wedge and some mint. It’s refreshing, though the ginger beer stings a bit going down. Read more

    Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. If you happen to be an East Coaster in L. A., you will find no better bar to drink yourself sane. Order a Pappy Van Winkle's, neat. Read more

    From the outside you can't really say how cool is this place, so you just have to get in and try one of their cocktails. The happy hour won't disappoint you either.

    Try the Thirsty Crow (cocktail) for the newbies. Then move on to a professional drink like an Old Fashion. Oh, and relax, it's the Thirsty Crow.

    Saturday night was LOUD. Good time, good drinks, good music (lots of old school hip hop), but having an actual conversation was a herculean task.

    The happy hour prices are awesome here. $5. Head next door to Local, get some local organic food am they'll drop it off for you at the Crow.

    Keep it classy at this grandfatherly-feeling, bourbon-centric bar's that stocks its shelves with 40+ small-batch distills and pours cocktails like the marmalade Manhattan (w/ Makers Mark). Read more

    Bourbon princess approved! Check out the specialty drinks menu. The Mint Julep was pure frosty cold whisky perfection! And the champagne or wine spritzers!

    Great looking bar and cool atmosphere are the hallmarks of this east-side hipster holdout, but the drinks themselves could be better
