Silverlake's the Friend was already one of our neighborhood favorites, so imagine our delight when the charming, fun-loving cocktail bar launched a location in Venice. Sporting the O.G.'s signature baby pink and brass motif, the sibling spot is cute, charming and just as playful as the first André Saraiva, Jared Meisler and Mickey Madden venture—in fact, maybe even more so: You have to find the entrance, back around the Sunny Spot (just look for the mural of smiling stick figures all clamoring to get in). From there, it's all bright and seasonal cocktails with local and organic ingredients, plus dancing under a disco ball. See? Cute, charming and playful in spades.
