Only the big neon keyhole sign offers a clue to what you’re in for at this small mixology bar in up-and-coming Koreatown. The fun starts when you enter what seems to be a small, dark, coat-check with walls are covered by vintage doorknobs that cleverly conceal the entrance. You can find it by trial and error, or give up and knock. Once you’re in, there’s no more messing around. This latest addition to K-Town’s racy nightlife scene serves fine wines, craft beers, and specialty cocktails such as the Razzle Dazzle (rye gin, elderflower liqueur and cucumber juice). Drinks are affordable, the edamame is free, and the rest of the food is delicious, too.
