    The seasonal produce-driven cocktail menu is now put together by Rob Floyd. The same vegetal/fruit-forward menu is offered, but a little more on the theatrical side. Read more

    Library Bar is a little cave behind Public that continues to supply patrons with some of LA's most seasonal, creative cocktails. Barman Matt Bancaniello always has something delicious up his sleeve.

    Swanky bar in the corner of the Roosevelt hotel with elaborate cocktails made with fresh farmer's market ingredients bought daily. Each drink is an occasion in and of itself. ($10-15 per drink)

    Come here for bonafide cocktails. Then, if you're feeling feisty, wander to the Tropicana Bar. Thom Yorke showed up there once, you know.

    This place shits on the other places in Hollywood as far as drinks go. Rum mojito grapefruit thing or Gin bell pepper thing that Greg makes are the best, thank me later.
