This is the most elegant bar in LA. The beautiful billiards table is often empty. The bartenders exude civility and make superb drinks. There's always someone interesting at the bar. I've had the pleasure of sharing a drink with consulate personnel and once a prime minister. Sit at the bar and imagine the Black Dahlia having one last drink before she disappears........
Pros: comfy for solo girl, serendipitous, good after work crowd
Cons: often empty
