YOUR GOOD GUY TO KNOW
Jeremy Lake, Bar Owner/Cocktail Virtuoso
Those looking for a quality dram in an even more quality environment would do well to seek out Lake, who can usually be found behind the pine at delightfully dim drinking den Lost Property Bar in Hollywood — an establishment so named for the assorted bric-a-brac that adorns the space, all claimable by enterprising patrons. Artfully balanced craft cocktails, a killer whiskey list, a friendly crew and live music on Sundays — anyone asking for more in a bar is just being unreasonable.
And as for those trousers, ‘tis the season to show a little ankle. Or hell, a lot of ankle: the current crop of, er, cropped cuts are meant to play a little highwater-y. So lean into it. Dress ‘em up, dress ‘em down. Mix it up. You’ll be surprised how much punch they add, even in a solid color like black.
