Last week my sister and I attended the launch party for the winter issue of Los Angeles Travel Magazine. LA Travel Magazine is a must-read for anyone looking for luxury travel destinations in Southern California and across the globe. The magazine is filled with endless pages of beautiful places to visit, eat and explore!
The party was held at La Descarga, a lounge in a slighty beaten-up part of Hollywood. When you walk into La Descarga, you are ushered into a nondescript waiting room. The hostess engages you in a bit of small talk, and eventually walks over to a closet. She then opens the closet doors, moves some clothes to one side, and reveals the secret entrance to the lounge!
The ambiance of La Descarga is wonderful. As soon as you walk into the main lounge, you are completely transported back in time. It feels like an old speakeasy bar. It’s very dark and very moody, and you can’t help but feel a little bit naughty being there.
We descended the spiral staircase, cozied on up to the bar and grabbed a cocktail. Then we set off to wander around the space.
I loved the chandeliers and lights throughout the lounge.
Even the bathrooms transport you to another era!
Unlike most bars in LA, you have to make a reservation to get in. On typical nights, you can enjoy live music and a burlesque show.
Like I said, a little bit naughty!
