In Sheep’s Clothing is a hidden bar inside Lupetti Pizzeria in the Arts District. And by hidden, we don’t mean you need a password or to slide down a dirty laundry shoot to find it. You just need to know where the door is (it’s the first one on your right when you walk inside the pizza place) and you’ll find yourself in a large, wooden record bar that feels like a thermal spa in Tokyo. Most of the house cocktails are made with some sort of Japanese whiskey, and the casual crowd is composed mostly of friends sitting around at tables, talking about culturally important podcasts and how good the music is.
