This speakeasy exudes a casual, house party-like atmosphere thanks to darkly lit hallways, comfy couches, and an outdoor patio with hammocks, ample seating and spiked sno-cones from the old-school camper posted up out back; there's plenty to talk about with whomever you meet there -- and a dance floor busting out old-school hits if you want to take it to the next-ish level.
This always-hopping two-story bar from the Houston brothers evokes the World War II-era with factory-like details and suspender-clad bartenders serving up an innovative, always-changing cocktail list, with a separate, tiny R&D bar in the back the perfect place to strike up conversation with a new "friend" before moving over to the main room to watch a band or -- even better -- a suggestive, sexy burlesque show.
Bartenders serve up infused spirits, equipped with house made syrups and garnishes for young professionals looking for something fancy to sip on.
Meanwhile, DJs provide both current and throwback tunes to keep singles bumpin’ and grindin’ all night long.
There’s also the even-more-hidden Valentino room, which offers its own private bar and plush seating for those looking to escape from the hustle and bustle of the typically cramped dance floor -- and have a little, uh, alone time.
They are all set up with cozy booths, have great vibes, and -- whether they're classy cocktail bars or dark dives -- that inexplicable sexiness that makes closing time have double meaning.
This dimly lit dive has a dingy dance floor with vibrant music, meaning whatever happens on the dance floor hopefully doesn’t stay there.
Thankfully, there’s also a photo booth where you can find some privacy with your new fling.
There are plenty of intimate nooks and crannies in the beloved DTLA ode-to-whiskey, as well as a pool table to start conversation and "accidentally" bump into someone as you try to pass by.
Seven Grand also hides the sorta-secret bar The Jackalope in the back if you want to change locations without really changing locations.
