The Sapphire Hotel has been as staple on upper Hawthorne for decades, both for its dark, romantic decor and its large cocktail menu.

The intimate speakeasy-style Bible Club is major purveyor of Ardbeg Single Malt with its beloved take on the Penicillin cocktail.

For those with a sweet tooth, the Irish Overcoat, with Irish whiskey, coffee, and amaretto whipped cream, is another option.
