Located in what was formerly the old Baby Blue’s BBQ space in West Hollywood, Employees Only is a fancy cocktail bar/restaurant that comes to us from NYC. The dimly-lit space feels like a luxury airport lounge from the 1970s - but one that’s predominantly filled with CW actors, not business travelers. Skip the generic food menu as it’s overpriced and not very good, and concentrate solely on the cocktails. Because those are fantastic. And so is the people watching.
