Sassafras Brings Southern Hospitality to Hollywood

Sassafras Brings Southern Hospitality to Hollywood.

If you’re looking for Los Angeles nightlife with a Southern spin and tasty cocktails, Sassafras is your new saloon.

The newest Los Angeles nightlife spot from the 1933 Group (of Thirsty Crow and Bigfoot Lodge fame) features a genuine disassembled Savannah townhouse that has been reconstructed in Hollywood, festooned with moss and bedecked with vintage Southern touches, from a giant stuffed bear to cozy armchairs flanking a real fireplace. Sidle up to the restored antique bar to order a drink from the magical hooch merry-go-round—these are crafted barrel-aged cocktails that rotate suspended from a repurposed Prohibition Era dry cleaning rack. Our picks are the Apple Moonshine Crusta (house-infused apple-cinnamon moonshine, brown sugar and lemon served in a cinnamon-sugar-crusted glass), Toasted Pecan Julep, featuring house-made toasted pecan liquor, or Sassafras Royal (rye, root spirit, sassafras bitters house-brewed sarsaparilla). Pair your libation with a plate of grits and shrimp, settle in, and enjoy a live music playing—you guessed it—Southern tunes from a balcony above. 1233 Vine St., Hollywood, 323.467.2800.
