  1. there's talk of a m'n'h opening soon here, i'll search for more but it may be a place to start!

    1. sorry, only took a sec. the owner of milk and honey has opened a bar called "the Varnish" in the back room of Cole's, apparently an old school LA eatery.

          Make sure when you go to Comme Ca that you try a "pepper smash" a signature cocktail that involves whiskey, honey, basil, and red bell pepper. The concoction is a delightful mix of savory, spicy, and slightly sweet sensations.

          I hear the SLS hotel just opened a fairly good bar on the premises.

          1. Also Joe at The Bar Keeper in Silverlake told me that if you like creative cocktails involving tequilla, to go to Malo's on Sunset (http://www.malorestaurant.com/) and to specifically ask for a knowledged bartender, Christine. Apparently she only works Thursdays regularly however.
