Next Door Lounge

1154 N. Highland Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90038
The only indication that you've arrived at Hollywood's Next Door Lounge is the golden key on a sign out front and a doorman wearing pinstripes and spats. The speakeasy – located on Highland Avenue in Hollywood – requires that guests retrieve a password in order to enter, but once you’re inside the work is worth it. A plush living room is staffed with waitresses in red flapper dresses and bartenders ready to serve up classic cocktails with a nouveau twist, and on Wednesdays, you can get four shots of whiskey and complimentary pizza as part of the popular “Whiskey Wednesdays.”
