Foursquare Tips

  • This incarnation is named in honour of the venue's history. Originally Man Jen Low, one of the earliest (Old) Chinatown restaurants. Sinatra came here; once tried to get a waitress to fly off with him
  • According to the bartender, this is going to be the 'handjob centre of Los Angeles' (regarding the upstairs unisex stalls). Soft-reopened about a week ago; currently opens at 8PM.
  • General Lee's
  • It's the former Mountain Bar...bittersweet memories.
  • Music #red
  • Whiskey #chinatown
  • Diverse crowd, good vibe, awesome space!
  • Love the music and vibe!
  • Their card minimum goes up to $20 on Chinese New Year so be sure to carry cash.
  • Come here after a meal at Yang Chow. The mezcal cocktail I had was like nothing I've tasted before. Their version of a negroni was also very good too. Great cocktail place in the heart of Chinatown.
  • Hard to find but worth it. Very friendly staff and great craft cocktails!
  • Two ambiances: down and upstairs. Different music, both loud, not so good for talk but for dance, though there's many tables
  • Restrooms are filthy
  • Amazing cocktails. My fav: Cherry Blossom rising
  • Mellow scene, good cocktails
  • I love this place so much that I make it a point not to tell people about it. I don't want it to get too crowded.
  • Get yourself an old Chinatown
  • The upstairs has a great comfortable vibe. The bar snacks from Blossom next door are delicious & you can't go wrong with the cocktails. Garrett & Chris will take great care of you.
  • Delicious cocktails. Tell the bartenders what you're into, and they'll make you something special.
  • They ran out of Scotch within the hour I was here?
