And 23% more tequila.
Raise a tumbler to the sky at Pearl’s Liquor Bar, an antique-filled 1910 hideout equipped with a lush rooftop over Sunset, opening tonight.
What you’ll find inside here is an elegant brothel-themed salon, and it’s heavy on chandeliers, random old stuff, leather and herringbone. (That would be the floors, made with wood from Duke’s. Which reminds us: this is where Duke’s was.)
So if you’ve come bearing date, the two of you should head past the vintage perfume displays for some oysters and a couple of Fitzgeralds (tequila, coconut water, jalapeño) at the dark, moody bar. For those kinds of dates needing a little dark-and-moody to start.
But don’t ignore those ancient wooden stairs beyond. They lead to a garden. It’s dark and moody, too—just kidding, it’s slathered in astroturf, with an ivy-covered swing and a photo booth. So that... should liven things up. Still. You’re not stopping yet. Keep going, through a second bar area, and you’ll find what you’re after:
Here it is. A double-decker rooftop patio. There’s a DJ. And a fireplace. And a pretty enchanting view.
Even aside from the third bar.
