Saturday nights at Hollywood’s crazy/beautiful plantation bar, Sassafras:

Great.

Saturday nights with stuffed alligators and molasses-y Old Fashioneds in the creaky attic you never knew existed above Sassafras:

Greater.

Plot your ascent to Upstairs at 1231 Vine, the secret new attic space above Sassafras—now taking reservations for “Genesis,” a five-week Saturday night dance party that debuts July 26.

Yup, feels like an old attic up here. Filled with scavenged Big Easy–ness like baboon heads and gators, peeling wallpaper, glaring oil portraits and the innards of an old piano. So just like most attics. But with better barrel-aged Manhattans. And a DJ named Smiles. And not-unattractive Hollywood types. But anyway...

Now’s the time to go online and get on the guest list for an upcoming party that’s the opposite of the mega-club scenes around the neighborhood. Some Saturday soon: that’s when you’ll crack the nondescript door beside Sassafras, climb a long flight of stairs and nod your head on the dance floor for a while. Drink some drinks. Ponder booking your own private party here some night soon.

And when it’s time for a break and another round, hit the bedroom in the back corner and...

You know. Do attic stuff.
