Stopped in for a drink and what a find. They claim to have one of the first liquor licenses in LA. The bartenders are first rate and the drinks as well. The lounge next door is a cool find as well.

Love this place. The bar area is nice and cozy and fun. Then the dance club is dark and vampy and fun! Will go again and again! Always a great time.
