Steampunk meets Gothic at this club on the fringe of Downtown’s Arts District next to the L.A. River. Though the name, sketchy surroundings (at least at night), and the decor are vaguely scary, it’s friendlier than the average hipster bar. The limited but decent pub grub menu is especially strong on fried snacks: chickpeas, green beans, and of course potatoes. Bartenders give an expert spin to inventive cocktails, both classic and contemporary, and talented bands play on the patios nearly every night.
