Five Great Mixology Spots in Los Angeles

Jun 20, 2012 —  Just in case you’ve been living under a (Rolling) rock for the last several years, cocktailing in LA has become serious business, so anyone looking to step up to a drinking world well-removed from basic beer doesn’t have to go far.

Every day it seems like some new mixology bar opens up promising avant-garde inebriants like refined elderflower infused with hand-pressed palm fruit rum and garnished in unicorn tears, all served in a thimble-sized cup you have to drink while strung upside down in an orchid-steamed hyperbaric chamber.

There are certainly plenty of instances where folks go overboard on their quest for unique drinks, but thankfully here at Party Earth we aren’t so big on gimmicks (nor are we very big in Japan…yet). We just want a good glass of quality booze served up by a person who takes their job seriously.

And probably didn’t get their bartending certification in their mom’s basement.

Are these the best mixology spots in LA? Maybe, maybe not. But we love them and we’re pretty sure everyone but that weeping unicorn will too.

Roger Room is right around the corner from where I live - amazing drinks, cool door guys, great atmosphere.

I love Roger Room. Seven Grand is also a fantastic mixology spot - some of the most knowledgeable bartenders in LA. For a girl who isn't even into whiskey, I've had many a good drink there.
