Nov 11 - Cocktails in Historic Places at Sassafras Saloon in Hollywood
Friday, November 11th at 7pm, your ADSLA Events Committee invites you to enjoy a bit of Southern Comfort! No, not the actual liqueur, but some good old fashioned Southern hospitality! Imagine if you will, walking into a typical Southerner's home. From the bluegrass, to the food, and the quirky antique decor this venue is one that you will not want to miss! Sassafras offers wonderful batch cocktails that rotate above your head on a dry cleaning rack. There are of course wonderful areas at the bar and the surrounding rooms that you should explore. But you may be thinking, WHO or WHAT is a Sassafras? Well Sassafras is actually a tree whose bark was once used for home remedies in the Nineteenth Century!
Cocktail selections vary from your average Sazerac made with Rittenhouse Rye, Cognac, Absinthe and cane sugar to a Jon Eugenio favorite, the Last Word. For those of you that prefer something of the non alcoholic variety, the Housemade Ginger Beer will whet your whistle. Food selections are southern in variety and are available on a separate menu.
Sassafras Hollywood is from the 1933 Group, the fine folks that brought us the likes of Oldfield's, Bigfoot Bar and Highland Park Bowl.
The bar can be found on the west side of Vine between Fountain Avenue and Lexington Avenue. Parking is available via Valet and you can park on the surrounding streets of La Mirada, Vine and Cahuenga. Do not park at the lot across the street as they tow. As always, a ADSLA Membership and Events person will be there to greet you.
