The 10 Best Whiskey Bars in LA

Because apparently it’s “not cool” to drink whiskey “alone”, at “your house”, maybe start doing it “with other people”, at “the 10 best whiskey bars in LA”?

The Stave (click here for address and deets)
Long Beach
This classy, wood-laden bar’s got three-whiskey flights every Wednesday, plus specials on call-your-own Old-Fashioneds and Sazeracs from their selection of nearly 100 brown boozes.

LA’S 11 BEST UNDER-THE-RADAR BURGERS

Ever notice how all of those “Best Burgers in LA” lists mention the same 20 hamburgers? While yes, Apple Pan, Father’s Office, Golden State, Umami, Hungry Cat, and Rustic Canyon all make really, really good burgers, this is actually a city with like a billion burgers — so there’s gotta be other great burgers out there, right? RIGHT?!? Right.

Honeycut – TimeOut Los Angeles

Honeycut

ho says you can’t break out your dance moves and enjoy a craft drink at the same time? The nightlife heavy hitters behind Seven Grand and The Varnish, together with NYC’s Death + Co. booze pioneers, have accomplished the near-impossible—a premium cocktail discobar. The 3,000-square-foot basement of the O Hotel downtown is split between a cozy pool hall boasting what has to be the most epic drink menu (50 beverages, to be exact) and a very Saturday Night Fever “disco” room, complete with an analog LED dance floor. It’s probably the only place in town where you can nurse a true Old Fashioned while grinding up on a stranger beneath a ceiling made of reflective balls. Groovy baby.

Best brunch restaurants in Los Angeles: Burgers

Brunch restaurants in Los Angeles get meaty (and messy) with two-fisted burgers that are being served weekend mornings.

It’s a widespread belief that brunch is the remedy to last night’s debauchery. We like to agree—and take it one indulgence further with our list of LA’s best brunch burgers. Burgers are the new standard and ultimate morning dish. We’ve braved the juiciest, beefiest and cheesiest patties to compile the city’s best.

Factory Kitchen Brings More Italian Food to DTLA

A new Italian restaurant with a couple of big names behind it will debut at the Factory Place Lofts in the Arts District this week. Chef Angelo Auriana (Valentino) and Matteo Ferdinandi (Drago Centro) plan to soft open Factory Kitchen on Thursday, October 24, bringing rustic Italian food made with “fresh, seasonal and locally sourced ingredients” to this tucked-away corner of Downtown LA. The pedigree is there: Auriana worked with Piero Selvaggio for more than 18 years, while Ferdinandi was with Wolfgang Puck before joining Celestino Drago to open his suit-friendly Downtown restaurant. The space is industrial-chic with concrete floors, warehouse bones, wood tables and garage doors for an open-air feel (fun fact: Factory Place, located off of Alameda Street near 7th, was one of the first living and work spaces to open when artists started filling this warehouse-laden part of Downtown LA in the early 1980s).

Sure, there are similarities to nearby Bestia, which is also an Italian-focused restaurant with a seasonal, local slant hidden in a loft-dwelling corner of the Arts District. But knowing someone who actually lives in the Factory Lofts building, we can honestly say: parking is so much easier. Factory Kitchen will open for dinner at 5 PM during the week, 4 PM on the weekends, with brunch and lunch to be added soon.
