‘Tis the season… for taking a peek inside a hot new bar downtown. As the legendary Proprietors LLC, Alex Day and David Kaplan provide creative consultation for cocktail lounges around the world, from the famous Death and Company in the East Village, to bars in Moscow and Mumbai, to restaurants like Stella Barra and Rosa Mexicano. Now Proprietors has teamed up with 213 to debut their first L.A. bar: Honeycut. Tucked into the basement of the O Hotel, Honeycut features some of the most inventive craft cocktails in the city, excellent nightly music, and yes, a light-up disco dance floor. It’s like Saturday Night Fever but with waaaaay better drinks.
We’ll tour the space designed by Patry+Kline (The Varnish, Seven Grand) and watch as one of Honeycut’s mixologists reveal the tricks of their trade and teach us how to prepare a perfect cocktail for our holiday parties. Afterwards, we’ll each get to enjoy one cocktail in the disco as part of the $10 ticket. Then the bar opens for the night, and we’ll all stick around for more merriment. And we might just end up dancing the night away—they’re open until 2:00 am!
