Sunset Blvd’s Warwick bar is thanks to the minds behind the famously popular Roger Room bar on La Cienega. Though the bar is quite expansive and big, exposed brick walls, fireplaces and warm tones make it a cozy place to come on a cold night. The bar is also known for its artisanal techniques and attention to detail typically found only in small, craft cocktail bars. Let’s just say that between the fireplaces and their craft cocktail menu, you’ll be kept very satisfied.
