The other night I walked by the space where the old Largo used to be on Fairfax, and I noticed a doorman standing outside the newly-remodeled space. I asked him for the name of this new place, so I could look it up later and decide whether it was worth checking out, but the doorman said the place didn't actually have a name.

Groan. Is this one of those places? Yes, yes, it is, according to Los Angeles Magazine. The new owners of the space have launched a new music venue that features a farm-to-table menu, bespoke cocktails with hard-to-find spirits but it has no sign, no name, no website and a secret phone number. (If the chefs wear those Hedley & Bennett aprons, and the barmen—if they're men—wear vests and sport meticulous, steampunk facial hair, we're calling bingo!)

The venue is now open to a select few. In order to get in, you need to come into possession of one of the club's black business cards that is blank except for a phone number. Los Angeles Magazine got in and reported back:

Wander in and you'll probably be turned away—but not before you notice the rock chic interior complete with large booths, an enormous circular sofa, a fireplace, a corner stage, and a long bar near the back. Look up and you'll see what looks like the sound guy's perch. There is space for some acoustic management up there, but it's also a private dining room and secret bar.
