If you have never been to a speakeasy, Next Door Lounge (on Highland in Hollywood) is a great spot to get your whiskey on on a Wednesday.
“Next Door Lounge embraces LA’s revered cocktail culture without the velvet rope policy and funny mustaches. Our award-winning venue hosts weekly events for all the senses, from intimate whiskey tastings and food pairings to live musical performances. We like to keep it interesting and hit on all sixes.” – Next door lounge
I was given a password and upon entering around 7:30pm, was embraced with live jazz by a spectacular band.
4 different whiskeys to pair with a main dish and a desser. Larceny was my favorite because of the tingly undertones. A bit of spice.
The calamari is off the charts delicious
Avocado pizza, crusty but chewy crust made for a perfect combination.
The burger. Wow.
Not so heavy that you need to sleep after. Actually it was light because the patty had bacon mixed into it.
Check out Next Door Lounge, founded by a family man with a great heart for great food.
