drinks near the grove...

I know this board is a place for foodies, but who knows where to find good drinks better than those who appreciate food? I have an eclectic group of friends getting together for drinks tonight. I want to take them somewhere cool that is more than "just a bar." While the martinis at Lolas typically make my decision for me, I have taken each of these out of towners there before, and would rather hit up something different. I had been hoping to find a trivia night or something special for 7-7-07 but have found nothing exciting. Help!
Not Morels, but the other place across from the Grove cinemas is nice. Piazza, I think? Anyhow, I like sitting on their patio and drinking mojitos.
I don't know if there's a special theme going tonight, but I really like the drinks at Whisper Lounge (down the alley where Barney's Co-op just opened).
I realize it is late, for future reference, there are two places on third street for drinks. El Carmen specializes in tequila and mezcal. It may be a bit too much of a "bar" for the original poster, but the drinks are good and the kitschy decor is amusing. On the more "cool" front, I really like Celadon, which is kitty corner from Farmer's Market. Great, unusual drinks, many of which use sake, and the food is very good.
