Los Angeles, US
Flanking one of the most popular patios in Los Angeles, Big Bar at Alcove offers a quieter, more relaxed choice for neighborhood cocktails done right. The charming but unassuming bar features subtle design nods to European café culture, with a menu of seasonal drinks made with California's bounty of fresh produce and herbs, presented with fun names like Red Zeppelin, (Unexpecto) Patronus and Pinky Swear. Take your pick of drinking indoors or on the patio (the brunch cocktails are particularly delicious), but either way don't be surprised to run into LA's best bartenders and cocktail enthusiasts sipping indoors or on the patio – since the bar opened in 2010 it's been one of the best industry hangouts because of its fun and irreverent take on cocktails.
