Places to impress a former boss and "grab a drink or coffee"?

Hi guys--

My former boss is coming into LA for a week and she's managed to squeeze in a few hours for me in spite of a tight meeting schedule. She said "let's grab a drink or coffee in the evening" and left it at that. I should note that we're both tend to lead towards "drink" rather than "coffee" in our daily lives, but either is fine. Now I get to choose the place. Has to be in Hollywood. Preferably something hip, or unique (but not pricey!) I want to take her someplace more memorable than a Starbucks. Any ideas? She's definitely into fancy beer, so I thought of Blue Palms as a possibility, though maybe that's too loud? Any help is appreciated!

  1. Not too far from Hollywood, LA Mill.

    Great coffee, nice trendy decor and apparently they just got their liquor license.

        1. If you going just for a drink in Hollywood, then why not go somewhere with a great view and some "real" architectural character - Yamashiro.

          The drink menu is at the bottom of "Yamashiro Menu" and take their Tour:
