    These absinthes are on their menu - Clandestine, Kubler, Lucid, Matahari (yuck), Pernod,St. George, Vieux Carre. Does anyone know what else they have there? Maybe Jade 1901?

    It's hot out have on nice shorts,shirt,n tie. Seeing a nola style band, can't come in bc no shorts allowed. Fucking stupid snobby LA. The townhouse in Venice is more legit then this faux trendy spot

    Venue: Fun and unique. 20s speakeasy meets steam punk. Bar: Ok. People: No real dress code or face control. Expected much better but still a cool place.

    The place looks great, has plenty of space and the staff is really good. Not much else to say really.

    This place is a must to try once. Love the setting and dressing up once and awhile but make sure you have the cash to spend. Loved the maple bacon beer nuts & The Elvis is a perfect finish.

    "Celebrates an era of invention & imagination-the blending of science, art, and industry." Make reservations & dress to impress; embrace the roaring 20's style.

    One of my favorite bars to go to in downtown. It's a spectacle to behold with dark corners and intimate spaces. Love seeing the absinthe fairy darting about serving absinthe.

    Rooms vary in themes. Leather club chairs, lush draperies & dramatic iron candelabras combine with factory steel in this steampunk alternate reality. For cocktails try The Mistress ($14). Read more

    We just love the craftiness of the absinthe cart. A cute little green fairy, flossed out with wings and glitter, pushes around the cart and sells vials of the wormwood spirit on special nights. Read more

    STILL the most breathtaking space in Los Angeles, arguably in the entire US. Get a table, enjoy your company and a terrific show. Amazing.

    1. They have absinthe. 2. It was actually an old power station so all the equipment is real. 3. They have absinthe.

    Service is very slow on weekend nights because it's so busy- be prepared for a very long wait for food and drinks.

    $10 to get in and a minimum of $50 worth of orders per person if you want to get a table. There's a strict dress code so don't be shy to dress to the nines.
