In case you’ve been living under a rock in Los Angeles, you’ve probably noticed a resurgence in the past few years of bars and restaurants with a swanky/speakeasy/20’s , 30’s/ feel. I love them all. However, this new place, The Next Door Lounge has a special place in my heart. Located in Hollywood, it provides nothing less than a ‘vintage’ experience. Starting with the gentleman standing out front, dressed to the nines: suit, vest, tie, whites gloves, bowler hat and all. Oh so classy.
The menu? Tasty……The drinks? Inventive…… The ambiance? Cool, Spacious, Dark (but not too dark). Classic movies play on a large screen & the music stays in the background, which means you can actually have a conversation without yelling.
I hear the happy hour (5pm-8pm) is quite fabulous. Oh, and you must try the spaghetti pretzels. Addictive.
I will be back.
