The Nice Guy

Beverly Grove
Cocktail Lounge

Created by the H. Wood Group—the team behind L.A. hotspots Bootsy Bellows, Hooray Henry’s, and Shorebar—this reservation-only restaurant and lounge is the preferred destination for the city’s young, hip fashionable set (think Harry Styles and Gigi Hadid). Drinks are named after friends of the owners—like The Spicy Siena and Polkey Punch—and the clubby interiors and strict no-photo policy enhance its insiders-only feel.
