Los Angeles, CA (The Hollywood Times) February 14, 2019 – Hate/love V-Day? Far Bar, located in the historic Far East Building in the heart of Little Tokyo, offers options of fusion but not compromise along with specialty spirits for those who love or aren’t fond of the holiday. They’ve been listed as the No. 1 bar in Downtown LA from LA Weekly to being featured in Hopped LA’s “Downtown Beer Guide” and can boast their whiskey and bourbon selection is one of the best in Los Angeles – Los Angeles Magazine’s “Best Places to Drink Japanese Whisky”. All of their libations are served neat, blended or on the rocks with their signature cocktails changed seasonally using only the freshest of ingredients.
A good drink isn’t complete without a good bite to go with it, they offer sushi to their signature burgers and famous wasabi fries with a hybrid American and Asian menu designed to pair perfectly with a good drink.
This divey and vibrant Little Tokyo staple has been serving Asian fusion bar food by their award-winning executive chef, Visoth Tarak Ouk, aka Chef T. for a while now. He has studied the art of fusing street attitude and dining to create food for the moment, whatever moment you may hope to create at Far Bar on Valentine’s Day.
Enjoy a colorful evening on Far Bar’s romantic sky lit patio offering a deliciously special three-course $45 per person meal. Ignite the evening with a heartwarming bowl of lobster bisque, a choice of white bass and butternut squash or flank steak with chimichurri as the entrée, and finish off with a passion-filled slice of red velvet cake.
No partner? Notta problem. Grab a seat at the indoor lounge to enjoy drinks, laughs and Anti-Valentine’s Day single specials with friends including steak, fish and burger offerings. With over 34 different craft beers on tap and the largest Southern California selection of bottled beers from Japan, Far Bar’s great drinks parallel the versatile menu. A beer pairing special with Common Space Brewery will be offered exclusively for the evening.
Great food and drinks make for the perfect pairing this Valentine’s Day at Far Bar in the heart of Little Tokyo! Whether visiting with a significant other, celebrating Anti-Valentine’s Day or single and ready to mingle, Go Little Tokyo presents an endless evening for everyone on Valentine’s Day in the vibrant and energetic neighborhood of Little Tokyo.
An FYI – the food is great any day but using a holiday to get there for a first time or repeat visit is a great excuse to get out and refuse to get bogged down by any heart-shaped negativity. Open your mind and mouth – your stomach will thank you – and me. Go past the main bar & restaurant to find the secret back bar with an awesome alleyway patio.
