#109 The Spare Room (Hollywood, California)

The Spare Room is a gaming parlor and cocktail lounge located in the Roosevelt Hotel in the heart of Hollywood. Best known for its bowling alley, which is located right in the middle of the bar, the California bar also has board games like Monopoly, Connect Four, and backgammon and a hidden photo booth. The Spare Room is a whimsical spot for sipping 150 kinds of spirits and 20 cocktails, arranged in categories like Gamma Rays, Supernovas, and Big Bangs. Cocktails include Walking in LA (clarified raspberry vanilla Scotch oat milk punch that is served with a shortbread cookie), It’s Complicated Being a Wizard (tequila, smoked juniper, grapefruit cordial, lime, and disco salt), and shareable punch bowls like the Nanu Nanu (Cognac, apricot, Rooibos tea, spiced pineapple, lemon, and sparkling wine). The food menu offers comfort foods like a warm soft-baked pretzel with coarse kosher salt with mustard dip; grilled cheese with cheddar, pepper jack, and Gruyère cheese with tomato dip; and a Coolhaus ice cream sandwich, with coconut oil-washed Campari ice cream, blood orange and passionfruit swirl, and candied pineapple whoopie pie.
