Before it closed down during the pandemic, one of LA’s best cocktail bars was hidden in a small, mid-century-ish lounge behind Scopa Italian Roots in Venice. Now, like wide-leg jeans, Old Lightning has made its big return. Expect a huge collection of rare spirits, classic cocktails, and sharply dressed bartenders. Reservations are required and can be booked online.
