Saw this place on the news this morning, has an absinthe bar upstairs with traditional service via fountain. No flames in sight (from what I saw in the news segment and on the web). The owner specified several times they serve absinthe in the traditional style.

Located in Hollywood.

Jonathan,
They serve absinthe at The Edison downtown ($15-$25 a glass) but they've got several.
The Edison
and a great place to purchase the better stuff is at Silverlake Wines. Silverlake Wines.
So far in the OC just the stuff at Bev Mo. (Obsello, Kübler, Mansinthe etc)
If you find a specialty liquor place in OC, please let me know!!!

Hi-Time Wine has the best selection in Orange County.

and

Total Wine has a decent selection (way better than Bevmo), and the best prices of any liquor store, that I've found, in the area. (Their website is horrible, and doesn't reflect what they actually carry in the store. You'll have to go there to see what they really have in stock.)

They're "tight" about enforcing their dress code but that's about it.

Mentioned in other threads, just want to put a couple more stores on the Los Angeles section:

Mission Liquor in Glendale, Pasadena, Sherman Oaks

Also
Wine and Liqour Depot in Van Nuys. Website (sux) does not list inventory, so call to see what they have. Usually have more than a dozen, including (off the top of my head)
Pacifique, VP, VC, Leopold, St George. Typically $5-15 below other places in town.

Hey Los-Angelas-ites! I'll be in your city for a conference in May. Looking for venues that serve absinthe in the area of the Los Angeles Convention Center / Nokia Theatre - preferably within walking distance. I have a small group of absinthe-curious individuals that want to experience the real deal. I'm not very familiar with the area at all so please toss some locations my way! 

 

Thanks :D

Last night I attended a murder-mystery dinner hosted at the Next-Door Lounge on Highland.

The bar had four brands of absinthe: Kübler, St. George, Mata Hari and Pernod(?)

I had a Kübler and a St. George.

They were server in a Pontarlier glass with an auto verseur on top. The see-saw part was missing, so they just put a sugar cube there so the stream of water would melt it into the glass.

I was away from my table when the first one was served. By the time I returned, the auto verseur was empty and the glass was filled almost to the top of the side cuts.

But something was wrong - the contents were still completely transparent!

I'm thinking, "I know Kübler louches. Could they have put a different booze in my glass? No the scent is right, and, besides, the other choices here are vertes."

"Could it need more water?"

There was a small low-ball glass of water on the table. I poured some into the auto verseur and shortly - as the glass became very full - the drink began to cloud.

Moved the auto verseur to on top of the lowball and have a taste. Yowza! It's Kübler, but at least at double strength.

For the sake of science, I order a St. George to check my findings.

Yes, it's a double dose - almost triple to my light pours at home - I have to ask the barman for an extra glass of water. Even so the louche was so thick and creamy the other guests noticed it - and the aroma - and asked about it.

With somewhere between four and six doses of absinthe inside me, the mystery dinner was very entertaining.
