I, Ari the First, Duke of Upper Hollywood and Protector of Burbank, congratulate Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. on his election to the Presidency of the United States of America. Further, we are proud of the American people for taking another historic step in elevating underrepresented groups, by electing a senior citizen to the highest office in their nation. We are overjoyed that future generations of senior citizens will grow up knowing there are no limits to what they too can achieve. Inspired by this momentous event, and recognizing that our Duchy is landlocked and surrounded entirely by the United States of America, we look forward to a productive relationship with future President Biden and Vice President Harris.

In Our Circus Liquor Parking Lot, this ninth day of November in the year of Our Lord two thousand and twenty, in the first year of Our Reign.

Ari the First
Heir of House Schindler
Duke of Upper Hollywood
Protector of Burbank
Editor of the Desperate Times

By order of Ari the First, Duke of Upper Hollywood and Protector of Burbank, Jonathan Gatos is hereby appointed Vizier and Master of Assassins of the Duchy, with full authority to protect our citizenry from all possible threats, real or imagined. We are confident that, under the new Vizier's steady gaze, there will continue to be no unexplained disappearances of undesirables in our environs, and there will continue to be no rumors and loose talk of said unexplained disappearances.

At Our Drinking Establishment, in Our City of North Hollywood, this eleventh day of November in the year of Our Lord two thousand and twenty, in the first year of Our Reign.

We used to be a bar in Los Angeles, but there was a pandemic, and now we are a newspaper in your inbox. We have no newspaper experience whatsoever. And a very limited attention span. And our only skill is making drinks. So in our rare moments of sobriety, we just throw together things we like, and hope you like them too. If you buy something, we can continue to feed our families. If not, we must find other means to survive...

Plymouth Gin

London Dry Gin (41.2% ABV)
Black Friars Distillery
Made at the oldest working gin distillery in England, using the same recipe since 1793. No bar is complete without it.

Holiday Parties

The Other Door
Are you a small team working in close quarters to serve the public during the pandemic? Such as restaurant staff or first responders? We ARE available to host your TINY crew in our magical venue, with food and drinks included, in compliance with best practices during quarantine.

Peanut Butter Milk Stout

English Milk Stout (5.3% ABV)
Belching Beaver
Belching Beaver Brewery, in Vista near San Diego, is famous for this beer. I’ve never met anyone who expected to like it, and I’ve never met anyone who didn’t love it. This version, on nitro is even more silky smooth and delicious than the original. It smells and tastes of roasted peanuts, fudge, and a bit of coffee.

Larry's Chili Dog

They need your support to survive, just like we do! Tell them The Other Door sent you!

The first person to submit the secret phrase of the week, who has not already won something from us, is 21 or older, and living in Los Angeles, will win a prize!
