Lexington Social House is the latest addition to the burgeoning Hollywood restaurant and cocktail scene. Its opening brings back Kiowa Bryan, who garnered significant attention in her previous role as the head bartender at Fraiche in Culver City for her creative cocktails. You can find her Thursday - Saturday evenings at the bar in the back patio at Lexington Social House.
This patio area can get crowded and become quite a scene but a few sips of Bryan's cocktails and you can forget that you are in Hollywood and just enjoy the beverages and the cool evening air. The Lexington (below) is a great way to begin exploring the menu. It is made with Earl Grey infused Woodford Reserve Bourbon, honey, lemon juice and orange bitters. The Lexington is well balanced and the citrus plays well with the bourbon.

All cocktails are generally $14 each. On the evening I visited cocktails were $7 or $10, for Cinco de Mayo pricing. The small plates were $6 on this visit. I am unsure of regular pricing. I was told that happy hours or other specials may be in the works.
