For cocktail enthusiasts around the country, December 5th is as important a date as December 25th or December 31st. Repeal Day is celebrated every December 5th to honor the repeal of the 18th Amendment, which ended Prohibition in 1933. Bars across Los Angeles are featuring drink specials and events to commemorate the 79th anniversary of Repeal.
For the last several years, Los Angeles has been experiencing a cocktail renaissance: classic cocktails continue to win new fans, while innovative drinks push the creative envelope. The myriad of Los Angeles cocktail options can be dizzying, but ultimately only a select few can be called “legendary.”
