Located downtown L.A., The Varnish boasts a relaxed, speakeasy vibe hidden away inside Cole's Restaurant, the "Originators of the French Dip." The discreet entrance to the bar is located at the back of the restaurant, marked only by a picture of a cocktail glass. Both 1920's era and live piano music are played here, while expertly-trained bartenders mix your drink of choice. A short menu of cocktails is usually presented, along with the option to have a customized, "Bartender?s Choice," beverage made.
