The Spare Room at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel

15 Best Bars: No. 11, July 2012

Of the many bars in the storied hotel, this is the most playful, with two bowling lanes seamlessly incorporated into an upscale cock-tail area. While you’re enjoying a modern version of a Jazz Age punch, borrow a pair of black-and-white bowling shoes—custom made by George Esquivel—and hit the lanes. Good tip: Unless you run with Rumer Willis, it can be hard to get in. Dress well and act like you belong.
