(CBSLA) – It’s a 4th of July Celebration!

Prank – 4th of July celebration beverage
Downtown on Hope Street is Prank, LA’s first walk-up bar. Because of this, it was able to manage better than most during the pandemic. However, they couldn’t be happier to finally invite everyone inside, as well as outside, to their neighborhood bar/restaurant. With floor to ceiling windows, the space is open, breezy and full of light – perfect for our Cali climate.

For Inside SoCal, they whipped up a 4th of July cocktail (and mocktail option) called “Beyond the Beach” featuring El Sativo añejo tequila. To download the recipe for the cocktail, click HERE. Please drink responsibly.

And for those interested in the non-alcoholic version of the recipe, click HERE.

If you make it downtown to Prank, Bar Manager Brendon Williams recommends ordering up some of their boneless spicy wings and spicy cauliflower to chase down your “Beyond the Beach.” They are open on the 4th of July, so stop on by!
