Guests approach Next Door Lounge's door, marked only by a stylish key, and utter a password to the doorman. If they're the right words, the doorman ushers them into a cocktail lounge frozen in time.
Hollywood's Best Speakeasy
Inside Next Door Lounge, modern elements meet echoes of Hollywood's glamorous past. Tufted ottomans and framed black-and-white photographs of actresses help create the swanky atmosphere that led LA Weekly to name Next Door Lounge the city's best speakeasy in 2012. Silent films flicker on a silver screen, illuminating the faces of revelers seated in deep leather couches or along a communal table carved out of raw wood from Mel Gibson's estate.
