Strap on your best hipster suspenders and wade into this whiskey lover's paradise this weekend.

Editorial Review

Stepping into the Thirsty Crow on Sunset Boulevard, you are transported out of the modern eco-friendly Silver Lake neighborhood and out of the 2010’s as well. This bar has a classic antique vibe to it, almost making it feel as if the entrance doors should swing open like an old Western saloon. The small bar is ideal for date nights and confidential chats between friends of a glass of exceptional whiskey.

The Thirsty Crow in the heart of Silver Lake serves up the ultimate hipster cocktail- amazingly complex mixed drinks (that can take a full 10 minutes to concoct), bow-tied knowledgeable bartenders, and specialty whiskey… all in a perfectly antiquated, old timey setting. With low hanging lights, a black coal burning furnace in private a back room, and wooden wall paneling, this dimly lit establishment embodies everything you would imagine an old saloon from the 1800’s would. A veritable paradise for whiskey lovers, this place comes stocked with all the best of the tempting dark amber liquid. The list can almost be a bit overwhelming, but the friendly barkeeps clad in suspenders are more than happy to help you pick your poison. The bar itself takes up most of the real estate in this fairly small venue, so though the bar is lined with stools and surrounded by tiny tables and chairs, seating space is hard to come by. Stopping by during happy hour is definitely the best option. With lots of excellent drinks (usually for just $5), you'll be able to snag a chair before a rush of people flood the tiny space (which happens like clockwork after the sun goes down). The intimate vibe at Thirsty Crow makes it a great place to bring a date for drinks early in the evening (try grabbing a booth in the back), or sharing cocktails with a small group of friends around a rustic table.

Interesting Facts

Tips

This place is small, and popular with locals. This means on Friday and Saturday nights it can get packed very quickly. If you're determined to go during the weekend, try going in the afternoon. There're still lots of people there, but you’ll have the chance to grab a primo bar stool.
