The folks at Pour Vous, the newish Hollywood cocktail lounge, get nouveau cocktails right by looking for flavors that absolutely belong together but maybe haven't waltzed subtly in a glass before. But know your poison, or at least pretend to: The Parisian-themed bar, which doesn’t allow flip-flops or sneakers, boasts drinks like the Lapin Fou, which pairs eau de vie with carrot, ginger, lemon and the sweet herbal cordial Velay Jaune. You’ll look silly without a refined palette.

Pour Vous is located on the east side of Melrose in a neighborhood difficult to navigate and impossible to park in at best. Across from Astoburger and next to a mechanic's shop bordered by a chain link fence, with a dingy store front appearance, this bar certainly does not catch your eye.
It tries to be LA uber-cool by having a post-modern "Duckie"-style (think "Pretty in Pink") hipster at the door who metes out judgement about who can enter and who can't, like a TSA agent determining who should get a full-body pat down. (Ooh, you should be so lucky!)
We didn't actually enter this unsigned, no-street-number watering hole because one of the people in our party did not meet dress code. Why? She was wearing a "summer color" - orange. When asked why this was a problem, "Duckie" informed us that they're French and they don't allow summer colors or sandals. That's right, no sandals allowed, but worn out sneakers seemed to be just fine, as he informed the men in our group.
Maybe they just don't like women?
My suggestion is to spend your money across the street at Astroburger. Try the Gardenburger Deluxe and onion rings if you are feeling decadent.
Of course, if you are an eighties-style hipster with skinny jeans, pointy shoes and a bow tie, who is desperately seeking "The Scene" to make you feel like you're part of it all, this may be the place for you.
Beware, however, because no one who actually matters goes here, so your craving for feeling a part of the "LA Scene" will not be sated and you will likely be sorely disappointed.
Whatever you do, don't wear sandals (apparently they are a liability issue) avec summer colors which are completely unacceptable to LA French Hipsters.
Oh, and if you complain you can expect the equally pathetic hipster manager to follow you down the street trying to justify their actions like a recently dumped girlfriend trying to get her boyfriend back after cheating on him.
There's a mad-scientist vibe to many modern cocktails, and often it can lead to weird science. How to make a drink that's not just a remix of the classics without veering into the cocktail version of fusion? The flavors probably shouldn't go together, but let's try it anyway! (Wine milkshake, anyone?)
