It forms the backbone of this here republic.

And this here cocktail bar.

Pledge a couple of hours to Bar10, a casual new hangout where 10 people each thought up one of the 10 cocktails, opening Friday in West Hollywood. (See the slideshow.)

Always good to have a post-Petrossian/pre-Troubadour-ian place in your pocket, a place to shoot pool, drink pleasant alcoholic concoctions and just hang out. Even better when live bands are a factor. And total bonus when it’s dressed in that naked-brick-and-random-lantern look so many of our young bars go for these days.

So next time you find yourself over here with friends and requirements for a low-drama drink, come by. Seize the pool table. Sink into a leather booth and listen to music while considering whether oysters, bourbon-y mac and cheese, and wild Alaskan salmon have a place at your table.

Either way, you’ll have straightforward drinks like a Saladito (mezcal with honey, lemon and cayenne) or The Dank & Easy (dark rum, iced tea, rosemary and citrus). It’s what they’re about. Ten signature cocktails for 10 bucks. Each created by a different member of the bar crew.

But what they really want is to direct.
