LA (LA CIENEGA): THE BEST PLACE TO GRAB A COCKTAIL ON A WEEKDAY NIGHT

This is an example of a VERY belated post.  Actually, it's not belated.  It's vintage.

Full disclosure: I totally forgot I even took the pictures that I'm posting today.  BUT, that said, I still think it's worthwhile to mention the visit M. & I took 300 years ago to The Roger Room

If you haven't been yet, this tiny bar with all its old school cocktails (with a new twist blah blah) aimed for a sort of speakeasy vibe sans publicity etc.  Nothing like a low profile launch to create a high profile destination.

Basically, what I'm saying is, this place may not even have a real sign, but it's not a bar you want to hit on a busy Saturday night (even if you could worm your way in).

But for casual drinks on a weekday night, Roger Room is a great place to stop in.  Especially if you're me and you live, um, like a whole two blocks away.  They bring the whole cocktail experience to another level and there's nothing even remotely like it in my slightly bar deficient hood.

And now I need to go get ready for jury duty, where they will not have cocktails or even beer.  Just plain old red tape.
