This tiny but pleasantly quaint Silver Lake bar, dimly lit and filled with vintage trinkets and random antiques, is named for Aesop’s fable about a resourceful bird. It aims squarely at whiskey aficionados, with more than 100 to choose from, and favors dark spirits. It does offer a few clear spirits such as vodka and gin. Recommended for first-timers: the signature Thirsty Crow cocktail, a blend of Old Overholt rye whiskey, maraschino, lemon, and ginger beer.
