Los Angeles: Honeycut
The guys from 213 Ventures (Seven Grand, The Varnish, etc.) and Proprietors LLC (NYC's Death + Company) got together to open Honeycut, a new speakeasy-ish bar and music club located behind the O Hotel. The massive space has two rooms: one where you can play pool and linger at tufted booths for piano music, and another, the Disco, for underground DJs, live bands and dancing. To keep the in-the-know vibe going, they'll announce who's performing the day of the show via social media. With this group, you know cocktails will be king. Dave Kaplan and Alex Day, who consult on many cocktail programs around town, including at the O Hotel, will offer more than 50 different craft, bottled and draft concoctions. The only way to find Honeycut when it opens on October 14 is down the alley parallel to Flower Street, accessible from Eighth or Ninth Streets.
