Hey Micky’s, you’re so fine
Nearly two years after it was destroyed by an electrical fire, Micky’s reopened April 17. The WeHo bar and restaurant now has a modern gray, white and orange color scheme, a larger dance floor, two new patio bars, an upstairs VIP lounge and a sassy tagline: “Drink triple. Dance double. Act single.” That should come easily enough thanks to weekly parties like “Hot Rod Wednesdays,” which features live bondage shows.
It’s not just the parties or Micky’s Speedo-style logo that has people drooling, though. The extensive cocktail list features fun and fruity variations of classic drinks such as a mojito sweetened with fresh mango and a wild berry martini made with blueberries and raspberries. Of course, the large patio on Santa Monica Boulevard makes for a lively place to eat while watching the parade of buff bods and flashy dressers barhop. On the brand new menu: burgers, nachos, crab cakes, mac and cheese – perfect for soaking up booze. But the make-your-own omelet bar during brunch should make Micky’s worth rolling out of bed for on Sunday mornings.
