Barbarella Bar Opens in Silver Lake

Predicting the future is tough, but odds are it involves a 10-ounce martini or two.

Welcome to Barbarella Bar, officially open tomorrow in Silver Lake.

The name might remind you of a certain attire-averse space heroine, but the owner admits she liked the sound of the word more than the actual movie. So as a whole, the low-key bar isn't exactly a tribute to life in 40,000 A.D. But she did put her girls in bustiers.

It's not another velvet-rope scene, which is fine by you—just a come-as-you-are addition to your Eastside arsenal with leather booths that already look lived in, a small firepit outside and, if you want it, some Brown Rice Spaghetti or an organic burger.

And as for those martinis, on the long list you'll find a Ginger Cucumber and, for her, a Jane Fonda (read: Cosmo). But there are also a couple dozen glistening kegs behind glass, filled with everything from Allagash White to a Triple Karmeliet. (The only brew in a bottle is the Chimay.) Before long, you can expect happy hour to start at 4pm.

Sounds like the future to us.
