While Bar & Garden certainly feels like a neighborhood spot—super-helpful and friendly staff, a cozy, plant-adorned space; it’s been in Culver City for years—it’s definitely not your average local liquor store. Known for carrying hard-to-find bottles, owners Lauren Johnson, Marissa Mandel, and Ryan Frick make sure their unusual and constantly-updated selection of spirits are free of artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives. In addition to stocking a solid selection of natural wines and craft beers, they also curate an assortment of every kind of barware item you could possibly need. They have tastings every Tuesday and Sunday—plus, it’s a great stop for gifts.
