Distance: 2.7 miles one way
Difficulty: Easy 
Time: 5 hours
Bring: Cab fare  

Library Bar
Upstairs at the Hollywood Roosevelt, Matt Biancanello works his magic in a tiny wood-paneled room. His farmers’ market-inspired creations will blow your mind (and your Breathalyzer test). // 7000 Hollywood Blvd.

 

B-Side
With a subtly marked entrance, the speakeasy is attached to the Rolling Stone Restaurant & Lounge. On Wednesdays house mixologist Tricia Alley brings in other bartenders. // 6801 Hollywood Blvd.

 

Musso & Frank Grill
No alcohol-fueled trip to Hollywood is complete without a libation made by Manny Aguirre (above). Drink in the nearly 100-year-old history along with your perfect martini. // 6667 Hollywood Blvd.

 

Go Burger
Soda fountain treats are spiked at this gourmet patty place: Gosling’s rum with ginger brew and vanilla ice cream, or Tanteo jalapeño tequila with sparkling wine and lime sorbet. // 6290 W. Sunset Blvd.

 

Wood & Vine
You’d never know you were in a tourist vortex. This newbie with a cozy courtyard sits in the historic Taft Building and specializes in old school (Sazerac) and new (spiced East India). // 6280 Hollywood Blvd.

 

Harvard & Stone
A dive-turned-classy imbiber’s haunt, the latest from the team behind La Descarga has two bars; the one in back hosts a different bartender and spirit each week. // 5221 Hollywood Blvd.
