Today marks the opening of another awesome bar in L.A. Villains Tavern will be offering cocktails made with fresh “squeezed to order” juices like the Poison Apple, made with green apple juice, vodka, and bitters over shaved ice. Once you’ve gotten your drink-ON, sop up the booze with comfort food that has a “‘villainous twist” like a Cherry Bacon Marmalade Burger or the Grilled Cheese with cave-aged cheddar and tamarind chili (WHAT?).  Oh, and the interior…  (Click on images to enlarge)

The bar is framed by a giant gothic mirror

Antique jewel-tone bottles (that glow at night) line the windows

A place to wash the blood off your hands

The upstairs level where you can hide out and plot.

What you don’t see is the 1,600-square-foot open-air patio complete with bar, church pew seating, and shuffleboard — all illuminated by candles and Edison bulbs (fave!). Looks like these bar owners have been reading my diary.

GO: Villains Tavern, 1356 Palmetto Street, Downtown L.A.

Wishing you a deliciously deviant weekend.
