My favorite place to drink in The 818

Black Market Liquor Bar is by far my favorite place to drink in The Valley. And that’s saying a lot because frankly, I’m not a big drinker to begin with. But when I do get that occasional night out on the town (and I mean occasional cuz after all I am a Mommy of two little ones first and foremost and those nights out don’t happen often) this is where I want to go. I love the vibe here, it’s got a speakeasy kindof feel. All the drinks are handcrafted with care, often using local ingredients. Pictured below is the Yippee Calle – a slightly spicy rum concoction of deliciousness that made me so giddy that my husband made fun of me (that’s a good thing). The food here is all tapas style and by one of my favorite Top Chefs Antonia Lofaso. Everything I have tasted here has been amazing. It’s a great place to come and sit at the bar and hang out, or to come and sit down for dinner. Antonio has a new book coming out in August called the Busy Mom’s Cookbook… sounds just about right for me!

HERE’S A YOJO INSIDER TIP: Go to Black Market on a Sunday Night. It’s the perfect night to hang here when it’s not packed with people, you don’t have to wait an hour for a table, you can enjoy the attention of the awesome mixologists and waitstaff, and not feel old by saying “it’s kindof loud in here!!!” I’m just sayin’…
