Good Place For Drinks - Beverly/Fairfax Area

looking for a nice place for drinks in the grove/ beverly boulevard area. don't want the scene of cobras and matadors. something on the quiet side that isn't a dump.

    Good choices are fairly lacking. All the nice restaurants on Beverly have small bars, if you want to belly up there (Grace, Hatfilelds, Jar). Also Chameu on Fairfax just north of Beverly.

    You can also consider the Dime on Fairfax but ONLY if it's before 10 or so. After that the volume soars to unbearable levels (music and crowd).

    Also, in the Grove itself, is the Whisper Lounge which is surprisingly nice for drinks, if you don't mind the fact that you're effectively in a mall.

    And Celadon on the Southwest corner of Fairfax and 3rd has a nice upscale lounge.

      I second the recommendation for the Whisper Lounge. Actually quite nice.

      Oh and one more, a bit farther north, but the lounge at Table 8 on Melrose, just a couple blocks east of Fairfax, is great for cocktails and apps.
