Where To Drink Friday Night? (Harvard & Stone L.A.)

With such establishments as La DescargaThe Bar, and Piano Bar on their list of claimed haunts, L.A.’s nightlife impresarios, twins Mark and Jonnie Houston latest venture is Harvard & Stone. The place evokes a warm yet industrial aesthetic clad with exposed brick walls, bare lightbulbs, and wooden embellishments. This time, instead of transporting cocktail lovers to old Havana, Mark and Jonnie Houston, with Steve Livigni, are creating a slice of Americana, building a bar that is as much about celebrating wartime history as about craft American distillers. Here, the focus is on all American craft spirits, beers, and wine. About 15 “American” cocktails will be served at Harvard & Stone’s main bar. Then, toward the back of the venue, sits a smaller bar that will feature one spirit per month and act as a “test bar” for the staff and guest bartenders to offer a different, unique menu every night with the featured spirit of that month.

Expect to have occasional surprise shows from “major artists”, and’ve also a carefully curated jukebox.
