The Sassafras saloon transports Savannah to Sunset.
Newish Sassafras, in the heart of Hollywood (at Sunset and Vine), from the people who brought you the Bigfoot Lodge, is our new clubhouse. There’s nothing like it in L.A. nightlife. It feels lived-in and timeless. The drink menu takes cues from its name–ginger beer, barrel-aged cocktails, and “Southern home root-inspired libations,” including variations of juleps and Sazerac-infused numbers. Toasted Pecan Julep or Grilled Peach Punch, anyone? Yes. Food too, such as blue crab cakes and Zydeco oysters. So what if it’s a little bit old-timey kitschy, if they’re doing it right. And take a look at the digs, pictured here.
It’s open until 2 a.m. Located at: 1233 N. Vine St., sassafrassaloon.com
