1. The Tar Pit: If you're feeling like rocking that red lipstick or new heel, Tar Pit is your date destination of choice. Art deco all the way, with marble tables, lush velvet chairs, and dim lighting, it's the perfect environment for sipping seasonal cocktails and having a bite of what Chef Mark Peel has to offer.
609 North La Brea Avenue (at Melrose Avenue); 323-965-1300.
2. Cana Rum Bar: This members only bar, hidden in the parking lot of the Doheny hotel, is the perfect spot for a round of punch service or whatever other rum concoction you want to savor. Wood paneled walls, leather booths, and dim lighting make Cana the ultimate date night hang out; But for a fun night with your group, enjoy sipping a rum and coconut water from a Thai coconut or a spicy Day and Age while nestled next to the fire place on the outdoor patio.
714 West Olympic Boulevard (at Figueroa Street); 213-817-5321.
3. La Descarga: Like something out of "The Rum, the Cigar, and Wardrobe," La Descarga is a journey literally through a coat closet into a world of salsa, stiff drinks, and a good time. With a cigar lounge and casual dance floor, La Descarga is the perfect close to a night on the town for the rum inclined.
1159 North Western Avenue (at Virginia Avenue); 323-466-1324.
