However, rather than abandon the entire in-person tradition, Angelenos are hitting up late-night haunts in droves, chowing down on everything from bánh mìs to milkshakes. Between bites, they're reminiscing about what went down just minutes before. Where are they gathering exactly? These top five after-hours spots in L.A. And, to get you prepped to follow suit, we've put together a look for each eatery that'll complete your perfect evening out. Because, really, who says wardrobe changes all have to take place before curfew?
While the regular menu at Red Med is pretty swanky, it's chef Jordan Kahn's bar fare that totally makes us salivate. One bite of the legendary bánh mì or a savory spring roll, and we think you'll agree. Plus, this crew isn't fooling around when it comes to cocktails: We're big fans of #73, a.k.a. its version of a Caipirinha. While there's no official dress code, we suggest you take note of Kahn's colorful dishes and dress the part in a botanical-print frock and architectural add-ons.
