Marked only by a neon Cocktail sign, this low-key bar is somewhat hidden on the eastern end of the Culver City art district. The interior resembles a minimalist gallery, with a concrete floor and wood-paneled walls hung with local artwork. The venue is divided into three spaces: the front bar area, where well-trained bartenders craft classic cocktails such as the Moscow Mule; the middle room, where live DJ’s spin an eclectic mix of music as cult movie clips play on the back wall; and an outdoor garden patio, furnished with tables made from lacquered swamp cedar.
