Because we’re about to send you into the back of a sketchy adult video store.
But here’s your handsome reward just beyond it: Adults Only, a magnificent new Hollywood cocktail haunt hidden behind a stash of VHS tapes, soft-opening tomorrow with scattered events before opening seven days a week starting December 1. You’ll definitely want to see this slideshow and this drink menu.
Yes, you’re entering a neon-lit strip mall VHS store behind a Burger King. And right beyond the adult section is a striking cathedral of old-Hollywood-ness accented with stained glass, vintage movie posters and cult films projected on the wall. How about that.
We see you popping in with friends any day of the week at happy hour. Everyone will get cups of punch that change every day. Or fernet shots with beers (called, naturally, the Money Shot). Or perhaps you’ll proceed to the billiards room. Or the photo booth in front of an old theater crowd.
Then again, you might pass the later hours here over good whiskey and simple drinks involving mezcal, chili and cilantro. And (of course) there’s no kitchen here, but you might be interested in the neighboring In-N-Out.
