First opened in 2010, 1886 has continued evolving ever since. Our bar program has a strong foundation in using classic techniques. Expect your Manhattans, Old-Fashions, Sidecars, and Sours to be prepared with perfection, taking you back to the pre-Prohibition Era touched with fresh juices and hand-cut block ice. 

1886 boasts a repertoire of over 600 off-menu house cocktails. Our cocktail list uses seasonal and regional ingredients, a broad range of spirits, and playful presentations. If you don’t see exactly what you’re thirsty for on our menu, request a “dealer’s choice” and let the bartender create the perfect drink for you, based on your personal tastes or preference.

Over the years, 1886 has received rave reviews from print and online publications like the LA Times, LA Weekly, Food and Wine Magazine, CLASS Magazine, Huffington Post, Caroline on Crack, Thrillist, ThirstyInLA, EaterLA, Laist, The Minty, The Tasting Panel and many more.
