Off the lobby of the Roosevelt in Hollywood the Library Bar is a small space to enjoy hand-built cocktails with foams made on the spot and Névé ice is used exclusively. I am glad to see that America has finally caught up in the ice department, a bonus the Japanese have been offering for years, in intricate hand sculpted ice used in drinks and cocktails, taken from the glaciers of Mt. Fuji.

Matt Biancaniello, the resident bartender, makes a mean vanilla or fig Manhattan, Ham on Rye, 17-Step Bloody Mary and other odd concoctions. Drinks are $15.
