Dirty Laundry

Finding this subterranean drinkery is not going to be easy, mainly because it's literally underneath an apartment building down an alley off buzzing Hollywood Blvd. It doesn't get more "speakeasy" than that. But wait until you get inside. Dirty Laundry—a reference to the laundry basket method of smuggling alcohol during Prohibition—is an idyllic man cave of requisite leather booths, bookshelves, dark wood paneling and "SEX." To be clear, "SEX" is just a neon sign that greets guests at the entrance. That's not to say blatant PDA is forbidden—just name-dropping, "trout pouts" and belching. Simply put, you are better off drinking. Bar Manager Nicolas O'Connor (Teddy's, Apotheke) and his pedigreed, suspender-wearing crew behind the stick should be reason enough. This is some next-level mixology, with drinks like Pop Rocks-garnished mint juleps and bacon Manhattan slushies. You know, the usual.
