Perk up at a picture-perfect Culver City coffee shop
New LA pourhouse Bar Nine will put your at-home barista skills to shame, in a good way. Takeout cups are real, live mason jars. They’ve got fizzy water on tap. And the staff (who makes the raw, espresso-perfecting hazelnut milk from scratch) is impeccably friendly. Adorable foam latte hearts aside, cuppa Joe experts will swoon over the airy converted warehouse digs, lowered countertop (for a better view of where the magic happens), and public weekly cupping events—wherein guests sip, socialize, and kick their collective hangovers to the curb each Sunday at noon. Care to keep sipping once you’ve left L.A.? Peruse their online shop for beloved house brews sources from South America, Africa, and beyond.
