Drink Out. Bar Lubitsch.

Bar Lubitsch is a Russian-themed bar in West Hollywood. I'd been a couple years ago and didn't find it that special, but returned this past weekend for a friend's birthday, and appreciated it much more this time 'round.

The Soviet Russia propaganda decor mixed with roomy booths and lots of deep reds makes one want to try the bar's many vodkas. A refreshing specialty cocktail featured on the chalkboard menu is a Moscow Mule, made with Russian Standard Vodka. They serve it in a tin mug, and it's adorned with a slice of candied ginger.

The bar is owned by the same Los Angeles group as Swingers, El Carmen, and Jones. It's actually quite a lot like El Carmen, just a Russian vodka bar rather than a Mexican tequila bar. The "red room" in the back is an added bonus, though. On Saturday night it was jam-packed with people dancing. There's a smaller bar back there, and I believe it can be rented for private parties (I've been to a play there).
