Concierge.com's insider take:

The Roger Room, a dimly lit, cocktail-focused pub where the mixologists wear suspenders and fastidiously mix gourmet drinks, has become a cozy hot spot for Hollywood starlets. Behind an unmarked door in the thick of the La Cienega gridlock, this sliver of space (formerly the dingy Coronet Pub) underwent a thorough gutting and now has a yesteryear feel complete with Art Deco–style furnishings, circus-themed murals, and opaque stained-glass windows. Sure, you might spot a celeb or two, but the focus here is on the drinks—smooth, retro-feeling cocktails like the Thug (Maker's Mark, honey liqueur, lemon, and a dash of habañero-infused bitters) or the Grifter (a mojito spiked with Mata Hari absinthe). When the place first opened in 2009, sans signage, its goal was to be one of those cool underground bars that keep those in the know in, and everyone else out. But show up early enough (before 9), and the friendly bartenders will take the time to make a nobody feel like a somebody.—Audrey Davidow
