At this Cuban rum bar, you walk through a fake closet into a cool, bi-level speakeasy. Even if you wouldn’t normally order it, rum is the best choice here as they have many small-batch, esoteric varities, which are great on their own or mixed into one of the very well-made cocktails (complete with hand-carved ice). Be warned that this is one of the few places in LA that’s still cigar-friendly. There’s great music that you’ll want to move to, including salsa and live jazz.
