The Parlour Room + Shay's Birthday!

Today, my best friend, Shannon, celebrates her birthday. And this past Saturday, we partied into the night!

A group of us hit up The Parlour Room in Hollywood, a gilded, dark lounge north of Hollywood Blvd. We metro-ed our way there (yes, Los Angeles has an underground metro!), and snatched up our reserved space full of deep, comfy leather couches.

The lounge is glittered with various chandeliers, monogrammed and metallic wallpaper, and candlelight. The back half-outdoor/half-indoor section even has a fireplace! Perfect for these dry but brisk LA nights.

Parlour Room has a generous Happy Hour that runs from opening until 10 PM, of which we took full advantage. 2-for-1 well drinks and martinis (the boyfriend's favorite) were flowing freely, but I opted for the selections on their Specialty Cocktail menu: the Cucumber Cooler called to me immediately. Gin and muddled cucumber with real sugar and limes... refreshing and delicious! The Black Cherry Manhattan may have been the biggest delight of the night, and Shannon considered it a favorite. When the Birthday Girl is happy, everyone is happy!

The birthday girl!

There's something fun about reading a cocktail menu by candlelight, isn't there? Certainly adds to the sexy, party atmosphere. And blurry pictures!

Hi there, from the shadows! I certainly put my new little camera to the test in this non-existent lighting. That was half the fun, though clearly I wasn't so sure...

It was a fantastic night full of well-made drinks, good music, beautiful friends, and maybe some snuck-in Chinese food. ;) I'm so happy to have been able to celebrate this birthday with Shannon, and wish her the bestest real birthday today! Love you sweetheart! Thank you for sharing your night with all of us!
