CLIFTON’S

Cen­tered around a mas­sive red­wood tree, this his­toric mul­ti­level space in Down­town cel­e­brates Cal­i­for­nia’s “golden age of cafe­te­rias” and fea­tures cre­ative cock­tails in five dif­fer­ently themed bars, plus hid­den nooks decked out in fan­ci­ful style. Pop­u­lar trea­sures in­clude its or­nate wooden fur­ni­ture, an im­pres­sive col­lec­tion of vin­tage stuffed an­i­mals, and a hid­den ice cave. 648 S. Broad­way, LA, 213-627-1673; clifton­sla.com

DELILAH

In­dulge in a retro-glam­orous night of din­ner, drinks, and danc­ing at the new sup­per club Delilah.

And just like fancy Hol­ly­wood clubs of yore, guests en­joy ex­quis­ite live acts af­ter din­ner—with bot­tle ser­vice and spe­cialty crafted cock­tails, of course.
