The Parlour Room
The Parlour Room is everything a local yearns for in a bar. The specialty cocktails are excellent and inventive. The inside is reminiscent of Old Hollywood charm and the outdoor ideal for a date by burning brick fireplace.
From the outside you'd never know that what was behind the Parlour Room door. With a modern jukebox and a super cool outdoor area filled with couches and an old brick fireplace, the Parlour Room is the perfect spot for locals to grab a drink after work or to show off your knowledge of hip bars to a first date.

Most people look to Hollywood Boulevard for the coolest bars in the area, but those in the know have found that some of the best spots are a little off the beaten path. The Parlour Room in Hollywood is one of those places. Sandwiched in between a well worn CVS and a newly erected Panda Express, stands a small wooden door illuminated by a red "cocktails" neon sign. It is easy to walk past this tiny entrance and blow it off as a rickety hole in the wall pub. But this is most certainly not the case. Step inside and you'll find a large bar area that mixes Old Hollywood flare with a classic swanky lounge style to hipster perfection. Serving up excellent and reasonably priced (for the neighborhood) cocktails, the dimly lit spot flanked with rustic golden chandeliers is usually buzzing with fedora wearing gentlemen and chic ladies. At the Parlour Room, they do everything with a relaxed old school approach. The only thing you have to worry about at the door is showing your ID, and once you are inside their warm walls your only fear will be not being able to snag an open barstool. Mercifully open all seven days of the week, they offer a daily happy hour until 10pm - three hours after most Hollywood places have put away their happy hour menus. Grab a $5 martini (available all night long) and chill out by the bar or outside on their covered patio by an old brick fireplace.
Review By Darianne Doobie
The Parlour Room used to be a grungy dive known as Goldfinger. Newly redone, this place is now the embodiment of everything people hope for in a Hollywood bar. Old school charm, class and a relaxed atmosphere make it a local's dream spot.
Don't even bother looking for street parking on Yucca (or anywhere around there). You will not find anywhere to curb your vehicle unless you start searching at 5pm. Instead just bite the bullet and call a cab, or use their handy valet service. There are also a couple of parking lots around the corner on Wilcox.

When you're on the roof at the Penthouse in the Huntley, that's when you know you've really made it to the top in L.A.
Loaded proves that sometimes the most fun places are just a little rough around the edges.
Bar Sinister is the premier goth night in Los Angeles, set against a dramatic, beautiful Victorian indoor architecture, and an upstairs area reserved for a little light bondage for the more adventurous people in the crowd.
