Tucked away on the second floor of Hollywood’s Roosevelt Hotel, the Spare Room is like stepping into another era: one where classic cocktails, tiki-leaning concoctions and punch bowls pour freely, and people make merry all night long. The big draw here, beyond the expertly made drinks, is the gaming. This bar sports an antique two-lane bowling alley, which looks great with those George Esquivel–designed bowling shoes and argyle socks. Those not looking to bowl can simply chill in the lounge and cozy up to their neighbors with a friendly game of dominoes, Monopoly, Connect Four or Battleship.
