It’s no surprise that Los Angeles and the surrounding areas are filled with destinations for weekend night out with friends. If you find yourself in the West Hollywood area, you might want to check out La Descarga, Los Angeles CA, Cuban themed speakeasy. Stay at a hotel in sunset, and you’ll be close to a number of bars.
There have been a number of speakeasy themed bars that have popped up in Los Angeles. However, you probably haven’t heard of a Cuban themed speakeasy. When you attend this bar, you’ll walk up a stairway into what looks like an old and dilapidated hotel room. Inside the room, there will be a woman at the desk who will check off your name and then will lead your to an armoire in the room. Once you push aside the suits and other Cuban style attire, an entryway will be revealed. Walk through the armoire and on the other side you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to a Cuban cantina. There is even a seperate room off to the side where you can puff of some decadent cigars. True to the Cuban style, you’ll be able to enjoy a number of fancy cocktail drinks that have Rum as the centerpiece. On certain nights of the week, you’ll even be able to see a burlesque babe dance to live Latin musicians around the room and even on the bar!
The bar has a dress code so be sure to dress to impress. You’ll want to wear upscale attire only so no t-shirts, baseball caps, hoodies, shorts, sneakers, flip-flops or athletic wear allowed. Collared, button down dress shirts must be tucked in and jeans or slacks are fine. Sports coats are encouraged. Ladies should wear cocktail dresses and heels. Dark pants and an upscale is also accepted.
