City of Angels or City of Specialty Martinis? You decide. Los Angeles might as well be called "The Land for Specialty Cocktails" with its resurgence in Mixology Specialists. Sit back, relax, and let Hollywood's carefully concocted cocktails speak for themselves.

French 75 at The Tar Pit (609 N. La Brea Blvd.)
Fancying a gin martini with some farm-fresh pizazz? Saunter over to The Tar Pit and take a gander at the French 75 Classic, a bubbling ode to the gin martinis of yesteryear, packed with gin, lemon, and sparkling liquids. Consider this Supper club on top of the new A-list in Hollywood's nightlife scene.

The Janapolitan At Redbury Hotel's Library Bar (1717 Vine St.)
Care for a tantalizing twist on the classic cosmo? Then sit yourself down by a warm, cozy fire pit overlooking the city lights at the Redbury's Library Bar and sip on the Janapolitan, a luscious martini that starts with Belvedere vodka and ends with crushed strawberries and basil leaves, topped with fresh squeezed lime. Hollywood and Vine doesn't get any sweeter than this.

The Countryhouse at The Edison (108 West 2nd St.)
LA's original supper club, The Edison's cocktails go above and beyond the call of duty. The Countryhouse martini brings to mind old Southern memories of hot tin roofs and humid summer nights spent dozing off on a rickety front patio swing. Organic lemon vodka, clover honey syrup, sage leaf, fresh raspberry, grapefruit bitters, and fresh-squeezed lemon juice all mix and mingle to form Martini Perfection.
