    Sassafras Saloon is a Western themed bar on Vine in Hollywood. This bar has lots of character and really captures the vintage salon vibe well. It has a shabby chic look, with loads of Western memorabilia and vintage furniture. As you would expect from a saloon there is a huge liquor display above the bar, it’s a great location to relax and soak up the laid back atmosphere.

    I started with the ‘Under My Thumb’, comprising of Fords Gin and House-made Lavender Tonic. A strong hearty gin to start the evening with, no complaints here. My partner started with the ‘Vieux Carre’, mixed with 1776 Rye, Cognac, Carpano Antica Sweet Vermouth, Benedictine, Peychauds, Angostura from their barrel aged selection. Another drink not short on alcohol and certainly kicked off the evening the way we wanted.

    “It’s easy to imagine you’re in the Wild West for a moment.”

    For my next drink I ordered the ‘Vida Nocturna’, comprising of Del Maguey Vida, Amaro, Nonino, Aperol, Lime, and Agave from their house cocktail menu. With a drink that translates to ‘Night Life’ it delivered a kick as you’d expect. My partner ordered the ‘Last Word’, which was mixed with Botanist Gin, Green Chartreuse, Luxardo Maraschino, and Lime. The lime gave this mix a lovely tone and the other ingredients blended to make a enjoyable drink.

    Finally I ordered the ‘Country Lovin’, a cocktail mixed with Butter Washed Mellow Corn Whisky, Honey Corn Syrup, Peychaud Bitters. An interesting mix, after sampling this drink I have to recommend it. My partner opted to sample the ‘Fleur De Vine’, a strong drink comprising of Bourbon, Herbal Infused Bruichladdich Islay Barley, House Bitters, and Orange Zest. Every drink passed over from the bar has been faultless and this one was no different, very tasty.

    We must say that we were more than impressed with every drink we sampled at Sassafras Saloon. Being in a saloon while sipping a strong bourbon is quite the experience too. It’s easy to imagine you’re in the Wild West for a moment, without any of the gunslinging and danger of course. If you’re in Hollywood stopping by Sassafras Saloon has to be on your to-do list.
