Lost Spirits is a rum distillery in the Arts District and before you say you gave up rum in college or have little interest in understanding how it’s made, let us stop you. Lost Spirits is not just a distillery. It’s an art installation/jungle cruise/science experiment, with plenty of drinking, and one of the coolest experiences you can have in LA. In the spirit of being as awestruck as we were, we’ll withhold any specific details, but just know the $35 admission price is beyond worth it. Each tour last around 90 minutes and be sure to book tickets well in advance on their website. Tours run Friday - Sunday.
