Great little 20s style prohibiton bar Jul 12, 2011
Didn't really know what to expect of this place... because from the outside it really didn't seem like much. A seedy looking building with a one man sitting on a stool out front. He leads you up the stairs to the second floor and into an office. A girl is sitting behind an old desk and asks if it's your first time here. Of course you say yes... and she walks over to an old wardrobe and she opens it's doors. She pulls aside the clothes hanging inside it and reveals a doorway into the bar. Right away we knew it was a cool spot to be at.

The decor is reminiscent of a Cuban rum bar. There is a main dance floor and bar, with little private rooms towards the back... one of which is a cigar bar.

If you want to experience the fancy entrance get there relatively early, because after a certain hour they open up the main doors.

definitely a fun place to be, but I didn't stick around all night, so I'm not sure how the crowd got after midnight.

Fabulous Bar- speakeasy gem! Nov 12, 2011
Located off the beaten path of downtown LA lies this hidden speakeasy gem. Reservations are required at the Cuban rum bar, but once you get a taste of one of the 70 rare and hard to find rums, you’ll be glad you made the call. Guests can enjoy a burlesque and catwalk show while sipping on high-quality rum or head on back to the cigar room to grab a smoke. L.A. bar at it's finest! You'll love this place!
