    VIBE

    Sassy specialist martini lounge. The plush interiors are dark and clubby, though quirky elements like leopard print sofas add enough edge to draw Sex and the City types. Seemingly perpetual happy hours keep it packed to the rafters at peak times, but on weeknights it’s a choice spot for a grown-up libation and conversation.

    WHAT WE WOULD WEAR

    A trendy skirt, funky top, and flats or heels (depending on whether we’re trying to channel our inner Carrie Bradshaw or just want to chill with friends).

    GO HERE WITH

    A date; girlfriends

    CROWD

    30-something creative types, careerists, and industry insiders, though drink specials bring in partying kids on the weekends.

    WHY WE LIKE IT

    Those martinis! With over 50 different types to choose from, you could spend hours here! Plus, the vibe is fun–posh without taking itself too seriously.

    WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE

    Too crowded on weekends.

    GOOD TO KNOW

    If you’re interested in cocktail history, Lola’s was the inventor of the ever-so-popular apple martini. Check out Lola’s happy hour (5:30pm-7:30pm)–the signature martinis are only USD 5. On Wednesday and Thursday evenings, there’s also a “Late Lit Happy Hour” 10:30pm-12:30am. Valet parking is available.
