Where can I find a good Moscow Mule?

Can't find them anywhere... please advise! I had the audacity to enquire at Nic's Martini Lounge recently, but they didn't seem to care that I tried to order something not off their exquisite martini menu....

    Bar Lubitsch a few blocks east of Fairfax on Santa Monica Blvd.

    Same folks as Roger Room, Jones, El Carmen etc. but it's a Russian themed bar with plenty of vodkas for drinking straight or spiffed up into various concoctions.

    Personally, I'm a fan of a drink they make with fresh apple juice, vodka, and a flammable floater. I ask them to skip the flame and toss in a lemon wedge and it's perfection.

    They do however have the mule on menu. I'll try it out next time.

    Bar Lubitsch
    7702 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90046

    El Carmen Restaurant
    8138 W 3rd St, Los Angeles, CA 90048

            The mandrake makes a good one and its very reasonable priced. Definitely a young crowd though.

              RIP the Cock 'N Bull Tavern where the Moscow Mule (vodka, lime and Ginger beer) was invented.

              The problem is going to be finding a bar that stocks ginger beer. I found a recipe that uses ginger liqueur, but there's no fizz:


              Ther's a chance the bartender at Musso and Franks' could make one for you ... and if not, maybe the Pig 'n Whistle across the street.

              Musso & Frank Grill
