Cozy place an Irish Coffee on a cold night?
It's freezing out! Any good suggestions for a nice, cozy place - maybe with a fireplace? - where one can spend a lazy night and drink some Irish coffees? Would prefer the Westside -- Venice, Santa Monica, even Culver City....Oh, I wish Firefly in Sherman Oaks wasn't so darn far away.
I haven't been myself in years, and I'm not sure if you had a hotel lobby vibe in mind, but when you mentioned fireplace I immediately thought of Shutters on the Beach Hotel. We used to go there to enjoy coffee and dessert and it was very cozy with fireplaces and comfy sofas and a piano player. Also right across the street is Hotel Casa Del Mar which is good for the same.
