DTLA: Cocktails at Manuela
I dropped by Manuela for drinks after dinner one night last week. We wanted a night cap and were in the Arts District. I had never been for drinks before (however, I’ve done brunch).
Luckily a couple of seats opened up at the bar. I didn’t want anything too heavy so I got the Cider Car which sounded nice with the aged rum and chai syrup. My friend went for a drink under the Apertif list and ended up with the Bitter Flower. I suspect because of the Grand Hops liqueur (which I love from Greenbar Distillery, just down the street from Manuela).
Bitter Flower– Lillet blanc, Grand Hops liqueur, Grand Hoppy liqueur, Gruet sparkling wine, lemon sugar
Cider Car – Three Sheets aged rum, cider, chai syrup, citrus
The bar has a fun vibe and since it’s in the artsy Hauser Wirth complex, the giant fabric scraps ceiling thingamabobs hanging from the ceiling felt very appropriate.(323) 849-0480 © 2018 The Minty
