If the Hollywood club scene leaves you longing for a night more civilized—say, one spent swirling and savoring a fine scotch with Don Draper-esque panache—then ring £10 (that’s “10 pound”) at the Montage Beverly Hills. This reservation-only spot nestled above the Scott Conant-helmed Scarpetta serves Macallan whiskeys and whiskey cocktails with a perfectionist touch: cooled with large spherical ice chunks made of water imported from the Scottish Highlands, and presented in Lalique crystal glasses. Do a tasting or indulge in the Macallan 64, a 64-year-old aged single-malt whiskey and the brand’s finest. 225 N. Cañon Drive, Beverly Hills, 310.860.5808.
