La Descarga

Top choice lounge in Hollywood

This tastefully frayed, reservations-only rum and cigar lounge is a revelation. Behind the marble bar sit more than 100 types of rum from Haiti, Guyana, Guatemala and Venezuela. The bartenders mix specialty cocktails, but you’d do well to order something aged, and sip it neat as you enjoy the Mambo and Son sounds and the burlesque ballerina on the catwalk.

Guys, wear smart shoes and shirts. No jeans. Ladies wear heels and a dress or dark pants.
