SASSAFRAS SALOON
You've finally turned 21 and it's time to celebrate! It’s pretty much impossible not to be in a festive spirit when you’re sipping a Hurricane or housemade Sarsaparilla and bourbon at Sassafras, the atmospheric Southern saloon located on Vine. There’s Southern comfort food too, including fried chicken sliders on sweet potato waffles. On any given night you might be treated to a burlesque performance, live band or even Drag Bingo. Call ahead if you want a table.

How magical would it be to instantly trade the sidewalks and steel of an urban downtown for a woodland utopia? Clifton's spanned 16,000-square-feet of faux redwoods, frolicking forest creatures, scenic murals, a brook babbling with limeade and a 20-foot waterfall cascading over artificial rocks. To say that Clifton’s was unique is like saying LeBron James is a pretty decent basketball player. Imagine a larger-than-life diorama designed by Walt Disney on a Pine Sol-fueled bender. Simply put, it was unlike any other restaurant in Los Angeles.

The Sunset Strip, a stretch of Sunset Boulevard between Crescent Heights Boulevard and Doheny Drive, is one of L.A.’s most iconic neighborhoods. It was the setting for counterculture protests in the 1960s, rock and roll decadence in the ‘70s and ‘80s, and it exists today as a showcase for the good life, providing elegant hotel rooms, live music venues and fine restaurants.
