It’s not quite the under-the-radar speakeasy it was when it opened, but The Varnish remains a find, thanks to creative cocktails, a cool understated ambience and moody-dark lighting. In some ways, it feels more like Williamsburg than LA. Tell the bartender your preference and let him craft your cocktail. Located at the back of Cole’s.
