Cana Rum Bar | Downtown | Bars and Clubs, Music Venues | Music
Downtown bar maven Cedd Moses expanded his empire to include rum with Cana Rum Bar, which opened in 2010. Located in the historic Petroleum Building that used to house upscale cocktail spot The Doheny, Cana has a bit of the former's swagger, but without the price tag to match. This is technically a membership bar, but at $20 annually, it's anything but exclusive. The smart, young, bartenders at Caña specialize in two things: conversation and rum, which tend to go hand in hand as the night progresses. The focused cocktail list at the indoor/outdoor lounge space is playful, with straightforward daiquiris sharing space with a house-blended 90 proof rye in a New York-inspired mix called the Sunset Park. Hide inside all evening in one of the round-backed, padded seats, or join the next generation of Hollywood moguls under the skylights for a perfectly rolled cigar, available at the bar.
