The Best Places to Drink in LA Right Now

No matter what your drink of choice, there’s something for every taste in Los Angeles. Whether it’s craft beer, local California wine, or the latest in mixology, no one will go thirsty in the City of Angels.

Bar Centro

1
At Bar Centro at The Bazaar by José Andrés, fruits, herbs, spices and even liquid nitrogen transform the very idea of a classic cocktail. Set in the chic interior of SLS Beverly Hills, this is the perfect spot to rub elbows with Beverly Hills locals, international travelers, and the occasional celebrity.

Doheny Room

2
With floor-to-ceiling windows, an upscale, tropical vibe, and excellent drinks on offer, the Doheny Room is LA’s newest, best place to drink right now. But don’t take our word for it, Urban Daddy summed it up perfectly, “It’s the more sophisticated side of sbe you’ve witnessed at Hyde. Meaning you’ll be able to hear everyone over the Bowie when meeting friends after work for Loma Vistas made with mezcal, pressed ginger and pineapple juice.”

Sayers Club

3
“A cave where the Lost Boys hang out” – is how fan favorites Semi-Precious Weapons describe this legendary music and drinking venue. Sayers has played host to everyone from Prince to The Black Keys, and on top of that comes an excellent array of crafted cocktails to wash it all down.

Katsuya Hollywood

4
For a transformative experience with Japanese-inspired food and drink, look no further than the flavor combinations at Katsuya. Choose from the extensive Sake and Shochu list, or go for a Sake-infused cocktail like the “Katsuya Fresh.”

Hyde Sunset Kitchen + Cocktails

5
Hyde Sunset has become a mainstay for nightlife lovers, foodies, and those looking to dance the night away fueled by craft cocktails and a rotating roster of live acts and international DJs. Try one of their many inventive drinks like the Kaffir Caña - Kazi: Fleur De Caña Rum, Sugar Skull Coconut Rum, and lime juice muddled kaffir lime leaves.

The Library

6
Premium mixed drinks, a fantastic rooftop terrace, and delicious bites from Cleo, equal the perfect recipe. Add to that, Jazz Wednesdays, and there are few places elsewhere in LA we’d rather spend an evening than The Library at The Rebury Hollywood.

The Lincoln

7
Venice’s latest drinking haunt, The Lincoln, is big on details. This is seen in their creative interior, and well-curated drink menu, which includes everything from hard-to-find spirits, a rotating seasonal wine list, and plenty for the beer aficionado.

Otium

8
Otium is right next to LA’s most recent cultural offering, The Broad. Keeping true to its name, which translates to a “place where time can be spent on leisurely social activities,” there are plenty of classic cocktails to sip on here. We also love those with a twist, like the “Charred Pineapple” with Aleppo pepper, bourbon, and East India Sherry.

Melrose Umbrella Co.

9
A throwback to a different place and time, the Melrose Umbrella Co. is an homage to Prohibition-era drinks and decor. Plus, the location couldn’t be better as the ideal place to refuel—in the heart of Melrose's shopping area.
