Liquor Store/Self Care Packages CLICK HERE

On Saturday afternoons, you can pick up special liquor kits or beer/wine/single bottle liquor selections from 2-5 through our patio. Please order with link above. July 4 excluded.


Aargh. Bars are closed again. Once the brand new restrictions are lifted, our first stage in opening will be more special events with required food sales and additional outdoor seating in back of the building. Stay tuned and stay healthy. The uptick in cases is terrible news and we all have to do our part to keep our community safe.

We are working harder than ever to create a safe and healthy environment for you, guided by the CDC, OSHA, The Restaurant Association, The LA County Department of Health, and the City of LA. Our employees will be wearing appropriate PPE, distancing, checking temperatures, cleaning vigorously, and have done special COVID-19 training with certificates and everything! We hope our high standards make you feel comfortable and happy once Mandrake’s door is once again, OPEN.



We cannot wait to welcome you back! Like everywhere else, we have made some changes to Mandrake in compliance with new safety guidelines. The following gives you an idea of what to expect when we are given the green light to open again:

The biggest change is that there is no longer any seating at the bar so we will be offering table service. Fancy, we know! When you arrive, we will take your forehead temperature with our new ray gun, introduce you to our friendly hand sanitizer, and then take you to your table. One of our staff will then take care of you for the rest of your visit. Like everywhere else, you must wear a mask when you are not at your table. Be your mysterious masked self during entrance, exit and bathroom breaks.  Aside from with the people in your party, please keep that 6 foot bubble of safety going strong.

Space is very limited as we now have only 13 tables (with an outdoor beer garden to come very soon) available for seating at any given time. Reservations are encouraged. We will accommodate parties of up to 6 people.  Please be patient with us as we adjust our hours along the way as we do our best to match the needs of our business with the desires of our beloved patrons.

The reservation system is free and easy.  You are welcome to come without a reservation as well, but you might want to call first unless you’re a gambler and willing to roll the dice. We are going to limit reservations to 90 minutes at first. Of course, if we don’t need to fill the table with a new party, please stay and hang out, or grab a bottle to go! Yeah, you can do that now!

Contactless payments will be implemented so you can just scan that QR code with your phone and enter a card. It’s that easy. Don’t get us wrong, though. Cash is still king.

Please check back or cruise our instagram/facebook for announcements. OR buy liquor to go! Order your self-care packages and single liquor bottles/beer packs for pickup Saturday afternoons 2-5 . Link HERE for to-go shopping.
