Formerly the longtime rock den the Garage and then a dance club called Little Temple, the Virgil is the latest incarnation of this Silver Lake venue, which is owned by the same folks behind Zanzibar and the old Temple Bar. Newly reinvented as a specialty craft cocktail bar, the Virgil is divided into a "stage side," with live performances and DJs spinning everything from hip-hop and reggae to soul, deep house and world music, and a smaller "B-side bar," where happy hour occurs from Monday to Saturday. Mezcal Mondays feature special mezcal cocktails. The "urban zen" decor combines Chinese lanterns and candles with a Moroccan look in the lounge. The Virgil has several rooms, with two full bars. Ages 21 & over.
