The cocktail culture store near Sunset Junction in Silver Lake has the best selection of flavored bitters and cocktail waters I've ever seen — and Bar Keeper lets you taste whatever you want. The tiny, beautifully curated shop also sells glassware, bar furniture and accoutrements, cocktail books, T-shirts and, of course, booze. Their selection of the latter is not terribly vast, but they've got some interesting stuff. I have an ongoing Wayne's World moment with a $130 bottle of Chartreuse VEP: Someday, it will be mine. Oh yes, it will be mine. Bar Keeper, 3910 W. Sunset Blvd., Silver Lake. (323) 669 1675,
