I went to The Association on a Saturday night and there was no line, the drinks were pretty good. On the left side they have a bar, the dance floor is in the middle with plenty of room to dance, and on the right side they have a few couches. I recommended this place to locals and out of towner's who want to experience the Los Angeles nightlife.

I would like to propose a toast: to the best cocktail bar in Downtown Los Angeles. The nondescript entrance whose only demarcation is a lion door knocker gives this bar a members-only private club feel. But, the symbolism of the brass lion is not one of isolation and exclusivity, rather of power and strength - like the cocktails they pour. The interior is dark. With the limited sense of sight, come the heightened senses of smell and taste - making you acutely aware that what you are drinking is a perfectly balanced cocktail, one made with the freshest of ingredients and quality of spirits. The Association is where I fell in love with 99 year old New Yorker - The French 75, part gin, part champagne. They just don't make them like they use to and no one makes it like The Association. May they continue to pour balanced.

Went here last week on a Saturday night. The bar was okay there were people inside not to crowded either, the reason I am giving the review 2 (two) stars is because within the first 20 minutes of my arrival I was asked to step outside and got kicked out indefinitely. I went to the bar with a group of 15-20 people as we sat in the reserve section I was sitting down enjoying the music drinking on a cup of water as I was the DD unfortunately. I was asked by the "bouncer" which his name was Tim to step outside because I was intoxicated? Really? I was in there for 20 minutes minding my own business and he kicks me out. After a 5 minutes discussion with Tim he claims I was sleeping? I don't know what was going on with their staff or they were just having a bad night, but I had to take a cab home and leave the party. Poor operations poorly run.

The Low-Down=-- Friday Night, No Cover, Poppin, Dark! Rolled into The Association on a Friday Night and this place is packed, but fortunately there was not a line at the door. The entrance is unmarked and the bar is unlabeled, but know that the entrance to this place is a big solid door and shares the same depressed stairways as Cole's. Inside was pretty poppin, but this place could be the darkest bar I've ever been in. So dark that your hand would disappear if you stretch it out in front of you. Regardless, there was a crowded cushy seating area which took up about half this place, and the other half would be a standing room that surrounded the single bar. It wasn't dancy, booty-bass music that was playing, and it wasn't too loud either, because I could remember having conversations, and actually remembering what I heard. Once I made it through the crowd to the bar, it was not long before I was helped, so big plus for that. The bartenders paid a lot of attention to their drinks, but the price also reflected with an average of 11 to 12 bucks per drink. I tried the New York Sour, and it was not too shabby with plenty of stiffness. There were other specialty drinks that I'd probably have to try here.

Saturday Night Review 10pm-No line,11pm-Line-----Good thing the door man remembered me from earlier and let me skip right into the place, yay! It pays to be a girl sometimes, right ladies?! The location is a little hard to find if you've never been there; it's on 6th street, just east of Main on the south side. Make sense??? *laughs* Just look for the depressed stairways! Be warn, this place is daaark! I couldn't even see anything when I first stepped in. It took me about a good 5 minutes before my eyes adjusted. The place was packed with a diverse crowds and electro music popping in the background. The place is small, but it has plenty of seating for ladies with weary feet. They have a long bar with about 3-4 bartenders working that night....Matthew was my bartender for the night and he made my drinks quite stiff in a good way! Although he picked on me, I really liked him cause he reminded me of an old crush that did the same thing. Plus, he made my drinks extra delicious! Tonight, I tried the Pisco Sour (Pisco, lime juice, simple syrup, & 1 egg white with a dash of bitter.) and the Indian Summer. Both were delicious! I love any drinks with egg white as part of the ingredients because it gives an extra frothiness. Get it if you're a fan like me! If you want something refreshing that's similar to your favorite liquor with soda, get the Indian Summer! It was light and tasty with a hint of grapefruit in it. The only downfall is that the Indian Summer is so easy to drink that it'll go as fast as your water, except you'll be super buzz! Can't wait to come back for their Happy Hour! (Mon-Fri 5pm-10pm with their specialty drinks for $5)

Small cocktail bar located in Los Angeles. The layout of The Association gives off an intimate vibe which includes quite a few places to sit. Unfortunately the amount of people and volume of music don't allow for an intimate night. I wouldn't mind loud music, but there isn't any space to dance, so everyone is standing yelling at each other just trying to talk. There is this one bartender who is hands down amazing. This guy could multitask 5-6 things at any given time, all with efficiency and quality. He has some kind of memory because he took a ton of orders from different people without needing a single reminder. He was also multitasking quite a few other things. This is more of a witness for yourself type thing. It's a tangent kind of, but I was blown away.

The Association can be a hard place to find for a person who has not been there. It is right next door to Cole's, you can't miss it, it is the only place with a lion door knocker. The Association has some fine crafted cocktails. They use quality spirits and fresh ingredients, it is evident in the taste. They have a great happy hour. Make sure you pay this place a visit. The often hold events.
