1886 is a classy bar located in the beautiful cozy cottage-like restaurant called the Raymond Restaurant. You can easily miss it while driving if you're not paying attention to your gps. PARKING: Street parking (very narrow) or if you're lucky, behind the restaurant (limited). No valet. SERVICE: Our server was knowledgable about the cocktails we asked about. She also recommended one that's not on the menu for my boyfriend who loves whiskey. From what i've seen and read, it seems like the service here could be a hit or miss. Our neighbor decided not to order food because of the wait. AMBIENCE: Dim, cozy, chill, classy. There's an outdoor patio outside if there's no room inside. COCKTAILS: :: The Smoking Jacket :: l LOVE theatrical presentations. The bartender poured the drink into a glass full of maple wood smoke (smells like campfire) topped it with orange-vanilla ash. It's a glass of Irish whiskey with tobacco bitters. This is not on the menu. I liked it because the whiskey had a subtle sweetness from the bitters. :: Bonita Applebum :: Fresh pear, amaro nonino, apple jack and lemon. The waitress recommended this because I wanted something sweet and refreshing. I couldn't taste the alcohol but I did get drunk off of it on an empty stomach. You could taste the sweet pear with a citrus after taste. WHAT CAUGHT MY ATTENTION: I found out that they serve 2 very unique cocktails. :: Cake cocktail:: Table next to me ordered the freshly baked chocolate cake bite topped with bourbon icing with a shot of White Russian... It sounded grander than it looked. :: Cucumber cocktail :: they serve cocktail in a hallowed out cucumber with salted rims. WHAT THEY NEED TO BRING BACK (our server agrees): The snowman cocktail!!! looks like a creamy cocktail topped with a round ice cream ball decorated to look like frosty the snowman. I'm def coming back to try their other cocktails.

In the back of the fancy Raymond Restaurant is Bar 1886, and it's my favorite place to get fancy drinks when I don't want to go downtown / echo park / silver lake anywhere further west (gross). Typical LA cocktail prices, and the bartenders (friendly!) come up with such delicious and seasonal drinks. strong drinks, outdoor seating, good times with your friends.

Pretty nice place with interesting drinks. Happy Hour is 5-7pm and you'll get a $2 discount on food and a few cheaper drinks. They were super slow when I arrived at 5:15 and they were having a team meeting or something and working on dry ice, making a lot of noise and not really giving us that much attention. Kinda ruined the ambiance a little. Service overall was average. I had the brown derby and a smoker's jacket as drinks, both were good and the quality overall is above average. I'd recommend the brown derby. For food, I had the olives, pork belly and yellowtail coller. The pork belly was pretty good, but needed to be a little crispier. The olives were pretty spicy and seemed a little hard. The yellowtail was pretty good, no complaints. Overall, good drinks and pretty good food for not too much money.

love this place! its a little small but the ambiance is just great. it is a great place to take a date or just a great place to unwind and hang out with friends where you can actually have a conversation with them. the drinks are good and are seasonal so don't get too attached to your favorite drinks because you will likely find another one when they revamp the menu at the start of the season.

Speakeasy bar that serves great cocktails. Bartenders take care of creating each drink so be prepared to wait for each drink to come out.
