Tucked in an alley behind the Bank of America on Culver Boulevard lies Seventy 7, a small, candlelit lounge that makes you feel as if you're in an underground club far, far away from these parts. The bar's trendy yet oddly seductive ambience makes all concept of time fly out the window. Meanwhile, the folks behind the bar really know what they're doing, with an emphasis on making a strong drink taste great. Cocktails come fast, the bartenders are down to earth, there's live music and the food is tasty. What else is there to ask for? 3843 Main St., Culver City. (310) 559-7077, seventy7lounge.com. —Mary Carreon
