Not to be sacrilegious or anything, but I was thinking, this would surely get a “rise” out of those needing to be “lifted up” this weekend. Because, there are plenty of us, who just cannot seem to get in the spirit of Passover and Easter and let me tell you, Jane Fender (my Mother) will not allow that to happen, and neither will I. There is too much to be thankful for and too many people to celebrate too much with for you not to get together with your closest friends and family members- regardless of your religious beliefs. I have decided to try a different strategy to get the less-enthused enthused!

OR GO TO THE LIBRARY, BUT NOT ANY OLD LIBRARY!

Well-heeled professionals and fashion-focused creatives find pleasure perched on plush leather barstools as bartenders handcraft their specialty cocktails. Across the room, hipsters lounge on luxurious leather sofas by the fireplace, sipping Belgian Tripels while perusing the library bookshelves for newfound knowledge. The proverbial sounds of Jim Hendrix and The Who drift from the jukebox, enveloping the intimate space in an air of informality that is both sociable and unpretentious. Nestled on the ground floor of the Library Court Lofts, and adjacent to the L.A. Library and trendy Standard Hotel, Library Bar is the crown jewel of downtown’s ever-growing nightlife scene a timeless destination where world-class beers and fine cocktails take center stage in an unassumingly chic setting.
