( In Most Cases I Usually Start Off with a Featured COCKTAIL But with this ADVENTURE I Had to Start at the Very Beginning! )
THE SPEAKEASY is Back with a VENGEANCE !!!!!!
Yes this Unassuming BARBER SHOP !!!!!
Legit Barber Shop by Day , By Night Back Door Leads to a NEW AGE SPEAKEASY ~
A Bit after 9:30 PM on a Saturday Night , I arrive in Front of a BARBER SHOP on Washington Blvd. in Culver City, CA. There stands a Slim Well Dressed Cranberry Colored Hair Hipster.
He ask : " Hello , How Can I Help You ? Do you have a Reservation ? " , I reply : " I JUST WANNA DRANK ! " He does a Very Quick Head to Toe Scan of Me with His Eyes & Says " WELL ALRIGHTY THEN " " I.D. Please ". I Flash My I.D. & Like a Fancy Dance Move he Waves Me in ~
In the Front Door I go past Barber Chairs , Mirrors & Station SetUps to a Back Door that Appears to be a Stock Room Door. I Open it & BAM !!!!! I Enter Another WORLD !!!!!
Dark , a 20's Mode Feel with Music & I Turn a Corner , a BAR , Black & White Check Marble Floors,
Leather Booths & a Crowd of Cool Peeps !
Three Rows Deep, it Takes a Few Moments to Order a Drink. A Bar Menu with a List of Clever COCKTAIL Names & Tasty FOOD.
My CHOICE :
" HOT HEATHER "
Milagro Silver Tequila
TASTY & SMOOTH Like the Bartenders ~
I Didn't Eat , But I was Told that the " Gilled Cheese Sandwich " ( Pepper Jack / Habanero / Jalapeño / Thai Chillies / Artisan Table Bread ) was Delish !!!!!
In a Half Hour I'm Fully Relaxed & Bopping to the Beats ~
Great People Watching & Ambience , WHO KNEW ?!?!!!
" VODKA & CRANBERRY "
A Cool Hot Spot , A Must Try & Partake in a Little " GIBBLE WATER " = 20's SPEAKEASY TERM Meaning : An Intoxicating Beverage ; Alcohol
