Allison’s LA Cocktail Tour

At the end of May, ThirstyinLA.com posted an article announcing that the 10 LA  area bars made Food and Drink Magazine’s 2009 Top 100 Bars list.

  • Bar Centro
  • Comme Ca
  • Copa d’Oro
  • The Doheny
  • The Edison
  • The Hungry Cat
  • Musso & Frank Grill
  • The Penthouse
  • Seven Grand
  • The Varnish

I love a well-made cocktail. I love it when the flavors blend and work together. It is a nice change from the standard Vodka-Soda, Gin & Tonic, and Whiskey-Ginger Ale.

I’ve decided to take this list and use it as a guide to great drinks around LA.

So far I’ve accomplished slightly less than half the list:

  • Copa d’Oro ($5 Happy Hour drinks and post- happy hour and incredible Basil-Cucumber concoction)
  • The Edison
  • The Penthouse
  • Seven Grand (Hear the Mint Julep is great, but I’m not a fan)

There are still a few more to hit up, and more places with hand crafted, savory drinks popping up every day.  Let’s hope Food and Wine Magazine is right!

    Have you been to The Association yet? It’s my favorite (at the moment) for a fine cocktail.

      The Association is quickly becoming my goto place for a nice cocktail since Copa D’Oro is much further now. It’s so much nicer and roomier than their neighbor, Cole’s.
