Best New Bar No. 2: The Writer’s Room

[Hollywood]

There’s nothing bookish about this cocktail grotto, which you’ll find only by skulking along the alley on Hollywood Boulevard between Las Palmas and Cherokee. Equine-themed wallpaper and an ornate chandelier recall a Nantucket country club crossed with a low-key bordello. Good luck getting any writing done after a few of Daniel Nelson’s libations, like the rickey made with kaffir lime and lemongrass. Good tip: In the 1930s and ’40s, when it was called Musso & Frank’s Back Room, Faulkner, Fitzgerald, and Chandler whiled away afternoons as they dodged deadlines. » 6685 Hollywood Blvd., 323-491-4148.
