From the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles description: "Glamour is as glamour does, and the former Brock's Jewelry Emporium downtown, once known as the "Tiffany & Co. of the West," has been refurbished and reborn as Seven Grand. The original jewelry cabinets are now used to display the bar's impressive collection of whiskey - - more than 200 different kinds. The inviting decor is an imaginative and strangely elegant mix of plaid and antlers, but it's the real, old-fashioned cocktails that are the draw. Look for the neon stag."
TIPTOE THROUGH THE JULEPS
The connection to the Kentucky Derby, this month's Guerrilla Gay Bar Theme, is the derby's official cocktail, the mint julep. Seven Grand serves three, count 'em, three, variations on the official drink of the derby, served as they're meant to be, in pewter cups.
We'd love it if you dressed up derby style this month; think southern finery, or even southern gothic. However you dress, make it nice - Seven Grand has a dress code and won't let you in if you're wearing shorts, flip flops, hoodies, ballcaps, visible jockstraps, etc. HQ will buy a drink for anyone who comes dressed as Tom Wolfe.
As always, it pays to arrive early - we like to pick popular, cool bars. If you come late, expect to wait in line.PLACE
There's a parking lot convenient to Seven Grand, on 8th street, between Olive and Grand. Parking there is $7. Or, you can take your chances with street parking.
