Día de los Muertos theme in this kitschy, multi-room space with loads of mezcal and tequila options. Fantastic happy hour, try the Smokey Margarita! At night move to the dance floor as DJ's play punk, new wave, and ska.

Our personal favorite, because the cocktails are to die for (my favorite the Paloma $12), it's within walking distance (just enter from the alley), and the atmosphere has a down to earth "neighborly" feel.

The bar and music hall (The Lodge Room down the hall from the bar on the same floor) are chill, stylish and sexy sophisticated. Check for performances since live music is not always going on in the Lodge Room, but the DJ spins Thursday - Saturday and live Wednesday night sessions in the bar. Love this place among many in the neighborhood!

Warhol, Sherman, and Koons, oh my! Eli and Edith Broad's collection of 2000 popular contemporary art works. Regular admission is free with an appointment. Google "Happenings at the Broad" for tickets for upcoming dates. Everyone raves about the "Infinity Mirrored Room", but do not miss Ragnar Kjartansson's breathtaking nine screen video piece "The Visitors"! Hidden behind a windowless storefront this is a repository of oddities, scientific wonders, and artistic miracles. Fascinating, subversive, and surreal this attraction is wholly unique and highly recommended.Open only Thursday - Sunday 2PM - 8PM***insider alert***
