LA Bartenders Discuss Their Favorite Bars And Drinks

We recently asked seven of L.A.'s top bartenders one simple question: "Where and what do you like to drink when you're not at work?" Their responses may surprise you.

Matt Biancaniello (Hollywood Roosevelt Library Bar)

I am an amaro drinker. Cynar, campari, on the rocks, at home. Or any cocktail by Zahra at Providence. She is a real true artist.

Joseph Brooke (The Edison)

I love Jones with every cubic centimeter of my heart. Budweiser and a shot of well tequila. Loud, abrasive rock & roll, and nobody bothers me. Absolute heaven.
