    For a complete '30's Era evening order the gin/Imbue vermouth/housemade pickled cocktail onion "PDX Gibson", but not the PDA Gibson, because, all in all, Mel's a pretty shy guy, unless you're Jewish Read more

    With exposed brick, industrial fixtures, a welcoming bar and experimental drinks on the menu, it sounds like a good place to chill. Read more

    CA (do) This East Hollywood watering hole is the place to go for cutting-edge cocktails. It’s got a fun World War II-era Americana theme and their list of American distilled whiskeys is beyond compare

    If you like douche bags, you'll LOVE Harvard & Stone!

    Doesn't matter what night: this place is packed. Come in early to grab a drink before it becomes a fire hazard. Enjoy the R&D bar in the back as well before it becomes overwhelmed by cigarette smoke.

    The best whiskey sour I've had, ever. And the place reminds me of the Sleep No More hotel. 10 of out 10 for the live music too.

    Back bar has a different speciality drink menu than the front bar! Ps- ladies, wear your most ravishing red lipstick!

    It's a theme bar and the theme, apparently, is WaterWorld at Universal Studios Hollywood.

    No complaints on the cocktails, but bartenders are super douchey. Enjoy.

    Head to the back ‘R&D’ bar first - there you’ll find a monthly featured spirit and a drinks menu that changes almost daily. You could come here every night for a month and have a new drink every time! Read more

    Don't wear your Dodgers gear here. They are shitheads and frown upon that. Oh yeah, shorts is also a problem, unless you are a girl, then try don't care.

    Crazy about the "Blind Psychic". Gin, Lillet Blanc, and an interesting herbed liqueur. Tasty. Note that the cocktails are a bit less expensive here than at other rivals.

    Based on my experience: $12 minimum for credit card use (even if law is $10 min.)

    There's an adjacent bar where u can smoke because there's no ceiling but it leaves the whole entire place smelling like cigs. If u like the smell of cigarette smoke, you'll love it!

    Bartender Rich is awesome. Find him. Tell him what flavors you like and you're in for a treat. I had the Easter rum punch with a festive Easter egg ice cube. It was deRICHous!

    An old haunt becomes absolutely beautiful inside. But instantly, THEE place to be seen. Which almost totally kills it.

    Good tunes sometimes even live. Intimate space so not a lot of places to sit but good environment for meeting people and hanging out.

    The place is packed every weekend. Soo prepare to spend a lot of time walking from the entrance to the smoking area. Besides that, music and beer prices are good.

    Looking for a cool kid bar that's actually cool and fun. Here you are. Cut a rug on some sweet throwback tunes. Handcrafted cocktails. Smoking in the back. Just beware the baby bathrooms.

    Try the tequila Ocho and Mandarine Napoleon margarita. It's so good! They have a cocktail with Atlantico rum too that's awesome. And the ancho Reyes Pierde Almas shot is spicy and smokey!

    No shorts or sandals allowed apparently. Too bad I'll never go in then. (This is a bar in LA, not a steakhouse in Napa... get over yourselves.)
