With its secret password and dapper doorman in top hat and spats, this well-known Hollywood lounge transports you to the glamour and excitement of the speakeasy age. A mix of classic 1920s drinks and modern cocktails using mescal, absinthe and agave nectar take center stage in the energetic, brick-lined den, where jazz plays while black-and-white films are projected silently on a wall. Catch a burlesque show (performed every 30 minutes) or, on Wednesdays, try whiskey flights paired with flatbread pizza. Reservations are recommended, but singles can usually find a space at the bar. Dress code applies.
