DTLA: Bar Snacks and Drinks at the JW Marriott, LA Live
While I was at the JW Marriott at LA Live, I checked out the drinks and food at Mixing Room. It’s a comfortable spot to hang out after work or lounge if you’re visiting or staying at the hotel.
Since it’s summer, a refreshing drink to try is the Green Hornet. Besides the fabulous name, the gin drink has a spicy kick with jalepeno-infused Green Chartreuse and gingery Domaine de Canton.

We ordered a round of bar snacks including ceviche. This was on the creamier side supplemented with creamy avocado.
I really liked the taquitos. They’re just so much fun to munch on.
The classic bacon-wrapped dates are a good choice for a bit of savory-sweet snack.
Being a wings fanatic, I had to try the Buffalo chicken wings. They’re just like the ones I’d want if I was watching football but let’s face it, I’d order these any time, game or no game.
I also tried the Pineapple Bliss. It’s on the sweeter side. I did wonder if there was egg white in this drink as the foam was perfect. Bonus, there’s a cherry to snack on after you finish the drink.
Pineapple Bliss – Bulleit bourbon, pineapple juice, lemon
If it’s a pizza or flatbread, my number one topping of choice is mushroom. Mixing Room sent out a great one with plenty of cheese.
