Lola’s bartenders are happy to whip together any one of their more than 50 different martinis, but they smile a bit bigger when they’re asked to make the concoction they invented: the apple martini. Their pride has caught the attention of various press outlets—including LA Weekly and Vogue— and spills over onto the menu, where martini-pairing suggestions accompany each plate of pasta, seafood, and signature mac ‘n’ cheese. Once encore chants finally subside, eaters can settle on the kitchen’s cocoa-centric desserts, such as flourless chocolate cake and chocolate bread pudding.
Xai Verandah Lounge infuses palates with Mediterranean flavors and soothes minds with aromatic tea by pouring cups steeped with loose-leaf, organic, and fair-trade blends. Chatting groups settle into cushioned white chairs, spreading brunch menus across sleek ebony tabletops to mull over Xai's fried-egg bagel sandwich, stacked with spicy greenery and Boursin cheese, or to visualize crawling beneath a cozy blanket made of fluffy smoked-salmon omelets. A traditional Lebanese mezze plate strains beneath a heavy cornucopia of eggs, fresh-cut cooling vegetables, feta cheese, zahtar, and other favorites alongside warm pita bread. Parties of four or six can break flatbread, savoring styles from the sumac-spiced zahtar to the lahm bi ajeen strewn with generous helpings of seasoned beef and lamb. Dining clusters savor their fare beneath the ivory-toned curtains and diffuse warm light of Xai's interior or inhale the breeze and argue with the sky around cobalt tables and tumbling curtains of ivy on a shaded brick veranda.

Since 1995, Bang Comedy Institute and Theater has trained performers in the art of the extemporaneous. In the process, it's built up a history of boosting the careers of comedic actors such as Jane Lynch, Jeff Garlin, Janeane Garofalo, and Fred Willard and the personal joke writers of several heads of state. Hailing from backgrounds in film acting and writing for shows including MADtv, the faculty turn students into confident stage performers in classes that sharpen skills in character development, long-form scene structure, and physical awareness. Many students go on to star in shows on the company's stage.
