Where to Find the Best Mocktails During Dry January in LA
The La Peer Hotel’s breezy Issima is known for fun nights with a poolside setting that transports you to European beaches. Order the Mocktail Med, with Ghia non-alcoholic aperitif, lychee, watermelon juice, citrus, and Fever Tree club soda to pair with your Mediterranean branzino. Sister restaurant Olivetta up the street also serves an equally-impressive Ghia spritz with cranberry lemon and Fever Tree sparkling grapefruit.

Still bummed that you weren’t able to charter a yacht and party in Ibiza over the summer? Located in the LaPeer Hotel, Issima can help you relive those vibes with a colorful, pool-adjacent environment that’s inspired by European beach holidays. The menu features wood-fired fare and fresh seafood dishes with fresh California ingredients, like avocado toast that’s heaped with jumbo lump crab on crispy toasted ciabatta bread, and grilled Sonoma lamb ribs with cucumber garlic yogurt. The cocktail list takes similar inspiration, with each drink named after a different destination. How does a trip to Cannes with Lillet Blanc, elderflower, malfy grapefruit, rose, Perrier Jouet, and Champagne sound?
