|New drinking options in the castle on the hill|
Not far away, the former Winston's, which had the typical lifespan of any place Lindsay Lohan frequented three years ago, is now Sixty-Six. Owned by the same guys behind The Dime and Crown Bar (Andy Fiscella, Chris Huvane, etc.), this is a super swank lounge of the Rat Pack caliber, all super shiny and glowing, with retro looking wall pieces and low-slung couches. It's said to be designed by someone who did Lady Gaga videos, so there's that. Much like Crown Bar, you can go for martinis, but it's a bottle-service kind of place with a nearly impenetrable list most of the time. And to get on said list? Know someone who knows someone, of course. Doors open this Thursday (7746 Santa Monica Blvd.; 323-654-0105).
