Cocktails and Wine at Rustic, Hidden Restaurant.

First and foremost, this place can be a little hard to find. There is a sign on the corner of Harbor and Wilshire, but it is not on that corner. From the corner, walk about 200 ft west of Harbor and then make a right. Walk towards the back of the building, and you will see a stairwell on your left hand side going down.  I will hangout for the first hour to make sure you find it. Text me if you can't[masked]-0030. But after the first hour, I will not have any reception while I am downstairs.

A truly historic restaurant, Elizabeth Taylor was proposed there (2nd husband) and John Wayne used to be a regular with his own booth.  

The atmosphere is truly unique.  A classy restaurant with a truly rustic, old world feel that I cannot imagine anywhere else in the OC.  You really do feel like you are in a speakeasy during the prohibition days, or maybe a GI on leave in Paris during WWI.  The cocktails are TO DIE FOR.  A true mixologist on staff, you will not be disappointed.  

Parking is plentiful.  Villa Del Sol has its own parking lot, and there is a public parking structure right next to it.  Also plenty of parking on the street.

Good conversations, cocktails, wine, and appetizers start at 7:00PM.

Below are a list of their great cocktail and late night menu.

      I was nervous at my first but that ended quickly. Everyone was super friendly & nice. I don't make it to that many meet ups due to my schedule so I feel like each one is my first with new people each time. The key is everyone is at the meet up for the same reason, to meet friendly new people and to have some fun. I've never been disappointed!
