Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

The team behind the 1960s-inspired Late Late Bar & Spirit Grocer is moving into the disco decade; Irish-born owner James Morrissey, in collaboration with actor Adrian Grenier (yes, Vince Chase), pulled inspiration from ’70s musicians like Dublin rockers Thin Lizzy for the four-level 250-seat affair: plush velvet couches, fabric panels, a white marble bar and a dedicated disco-ball–equipped champagne garden with bottle service from a private mixologist. During the day, the front shop operates as a full-service coffee bar and vinyl store; deeper within are three drinking and dining rooms serving a cocktail menu from beverage director Gareth Howells (Forrest Point), subtly pushing the Irish agenda with cocktails like rosebud-infused vodka with orange and aloe alongside more on-the-nose options like vanilla-infused Jameson with blackberry and stout. To eat, find light, Cali-inspired fare from chef Jordan Andino (Invite Only, 2nd City), like candied-bacon quinoa sushi, poké bowls and duck-confit steam buns with plum and scallions.
