There are certain things about No Vacancy that must remain secret until you visit. For example, the entrance and everything it entails. No Vacancy takes its speakeasiness seriously in the best way possible– once you make it inside, you’re not just in a hidden bar, you’re in an alternate reality with surprises around every corner. Oh, and great booze.
The Houston brothers, who are behind other LA favorites like Harvard & Stone, La Descarga, and Break Room 86 just to name a few, have a knack for creating whole worlds and histories for their bars. This time, they took one of the city’s oldest Victorian homes, built in 1902, and created No Vacancy at the Juniper Hotel, giving you the feeling you’ve traveled back in time to a delightfully creepy hotel. It’s all deeply colored woods, plush red velvets, oriental rugs, and leather furniture– such attention to detail suggests the 20th century inhabitants have just stepped out. The Houstons carefully maintained the home’s leaded glass windows, gas lamps and fireplaces, adding bars where a kitchen may once have been. Cocooned in this rich fantastical world, it’s almost impossible to remember it’s 2016 outside.
