[MAP]

For a town not exactly famed for its hedonistic drinking culture, LA is home to many great bars. Angelenos are particularly partial to a speakeasy - see longstanding favourites The Edison, The Varnish - and Lock & Key is the latest secret cocktail spot in town. Housed behind a discrete red doorway in Koreatown, access to Lock & Key is presented as a challenge: take your pick from a wall of vintage doorknobs until you find the one that will take you inside. Once you figure it out, you’ll be greeted by a swanky, golden-lit bar that serves craft cocktails to a crowd of LA cool kids. Enjoy a regular rotation of DJs as you sip your drink, then head to inhouse takeout joint Stall 239 for a fried chicken sandwich with spicy coleslaw to round off the night.
