Pour Vous

5574 Melrose Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90004

The folks at Pour Vous, the newish Hollywood cocktail lounge, get nouveau cocktails right by looking for flavors that absolutely belong together but maybe haven't waltzed subtly in a glass before. But know your poison, or at least pretend to: The Parisian-themed bar, which doesn’t allow flip-flops or sneakers, boasts drinks like the Lapin Fou, which pairs eau de vie with carrot, ginger, lemon and the sweet herbal cordial Velay Jaune. You'll look silly without a refined palette.
