Immortalized in the 1996 flick Swingers, this Los Feliz cocktail bar and Continental restaurant was established in 1954. The Rat Pack-era lounge has starburst chandeliers, leather booths, and dark-cork and stone-patterned walls. Jazz duo Marty and Elayne sing an eclectic range of hits from Frank Sinatra to the Bee Gees; performances take place Monday through Saturday nights; there’s an open-mic night on Tuesdays. A full beverage menu includes the house signature Blood and Sand—a secret mix of bright-colored fruit juices with a rum-base. The adjacent dining room has served its specialty prime rib for more than 60 years, as well as Italian fare like veal marsala.


Insider Tip:

The weekends can get busy and seating is limited. Arrive early and snag a booth in the lounge. Table service and apps are available, but note that there’s a two-drink minimum during the show.
