Part of a chain of hipster bars that includes Little Cave and the Bigfoot Lodge, Thirsty Crow has quickly become one of Silver Lake's most popular bars. The Crow specializes in whiskey, with more than 100 varieties, as well as 60 small-batch bourbons. Every week on "Whiskey Wednesdays," a different brand of international whiskey is featured for $5 a shot. Mixologist Brandon Ristaino also dispenses a wide range of cocktails, including Moscow Mules and Caipirinha, and the dark, vibrant bar has a clubby feel, even when it fills up on weekend nights. The still-evolving bar plans to expand its menu soon and start hosting live-music events. Ages 21 & over. Street parking.
