If you get excited about cocktails, you should know about The Wolves - a new DTLA spot serving some of the most interesting drinks we’ve had lately. Like their Old Fashioned, made with 10-year scotch and homemade olive and aromatic bitters. If you’re with a date who isn’t easily impressed by fancy alcohol, try directing them to the bar, where bartenders use fire and smoke and spray bottles to make the drinks. The wood-and-leather-covered space is dark and romantic, and they don’t allow any standing room, so expect to put your name down and wait if you come at a busier time.
