Drinks anyone? Trattoria Neapolis’ cocktail director was nominated for “Best Bartender in America” by Tales of the Cocktails. Patrons say they’ve had the best drink of their life here.
Their wine director is Vice President of the North American Sommelier Association, and Neapolis offers amazing wines by the glass and bottle.
Neapolis’ beer director is probably the best-known beer aficionado in Los Angeles, having co-written two books on the subject and dubbed by L.A. Magazine as the “Best Beer Sommelier in Los Angeles.”
Ready for dinner? The food is outstanding beyond words. The Zagat Guide lists Trattoria Neapolis in the “Top 12 New Restaurants in Los Angeles.”
- Lunch and dinner served seven days a week.
- Great brunches every Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. include lunch and breakfast items as well as great brunch cocktails, coffee, and espresso drinks.
- Every Friday and Saturday from 11 p.m. until at least 1 a.m. the bar transforms into a hip version of a 1930s Speakeasy. The lights dim for some cool rock/funk/soul music. There are special late night cocktails and menu items — even a 1930s-style burlesque dancer. Cutting edge drinks include liquid nitrogen cocktails and barrel aged cocktails.
- They host tremendous wine dinners and beer dinners. Their next wine dinner features a famous winemaker from Sicily on Dec. 10.
