Barbarella on Hyperion
This is a really comfortable space with a great beer list. The cocktail list is also nice but I've now had 2 drinks there (not today!) on 2 visits and found both to be cloyingly sweet. I don't mean a bit too much simple syrup but sweet to the point that all other flavors (mint, cucumber, lime whatever) are completely obliterated. I was psyched to see a new bar open so close to my apartment but I wish they'd back off on the sugar and let the other ingredients speak for themselves! Does anyone know a place for good cocktails in Silverlake?
