About the restaurant
Bar Jackalope is Seven Grand’s hidden whiskey lounge, where we offer comparative whiskey flights prepared and presented by our house whiskey curators. With a comfortable, candlelit indoor space filled with jazz music, along with an exclusive patio for cigar enjoyment, we offer a relaxing oasis from the hustle, bustle and noise of downtown Los Angeles. To preserve the soothing, intimate ambiance, Bar Jackalope has tables that can accommodate groups of up to 6, with the rest of the tables having a maximum capacity of 2 or 4. We do have a time limit on tables oo 2 hours. We do not do split parties, and discourage guests from making more than one reservation to try and have parties bigger than 6. If you want to reserve a table for more than 6 please email info@barjackalope.com for more information.

If you are looking for a special, comfortable place to unwind, celebrate, or simply relax with delicious whiskey, we invite you to make a reservation with us! Hope to see you soon.

OPENTABLE requires a food rating but please note that Although there is no food served here EVERYTHING else was simply OUTSTANDING! Here on business for work & tried this place. My husband & I attended last night & we loved it! If you love Bourbon & cigars with a nice atmosphere/ambiance, music playing on vinyl this is the place for you! We will return when we’re in town again & will definitely recommend it to friends!

Wine Bar
West Hollywood
About the restaurant
V Wine Room is a wine bar that first opened its doors in February 2013 and it immediately became a loved, neighborhood bar, and a sanctuary within the heart of West Hollywood.

V stocks a significant number of wines from small, California producers, as well as a variety of lovely wines from all over the world. Our team will make sure you find a wine that you love. In addition to wine, we serve cheese and charcuterie boards and sushi from our neighboring restaurant, Jinpachi.

The “V” shape of our bar helps create natural connections between our guests, so it’s common to make new friends when you’re here. With that in mind, we look forward to meeting you.

Oh my goodness! This was by far the best dining experience I have ever had in LA! I knew immediately by looking at pictures of the dining room that this was something I had to do and I recommend everyone to have high tea in the Living Room at least once during your time in LA. The food was thoughtfully crafted, every detail was not overlooked! Go for the Royal Tea - just do it - it is absolutely worth every penny. I will remember my afternoon at the Living Room for many many years, it was that memorable! I wish nothing but the best for The Peninsula and its wonderful staff and I cannot wait to go back!

Hollywood
About the restaurant
Marino Ristorante is deeply rooted in Hollywood since the late 1950’s when Ciro (Mario to friends) Marino landed in Hollywood and has ever since had generations of who’s who in the movie, record, art, political and business LA community at his tables. Today it is still family owned and given its warm welcome flavor by the second generation of Marinos, Mario in the dining room and brother Sal in the kitchen.

The decor is modern and comfortable with memorabilia from a 60 year career which all come together to create its appeal. Described by many marrying the quintessential NY Italian in Los Angeles for its history coupled with today’s seasonal menu, highlighting the best locally sourced ingredients and top notch freshest seafood available.
