This beachy drink works perfectly when you’re near the ocean. Even if you’re technically indoors, or on their long balcony, a block from the water.

SHOREbar

With its easygoing vibe and nautical touches, Shore Bar feels like the perfect home for water-loving Hemingway’s favorite libation.

Hatchet Hall

The meandering Hatchet Hall leaves plenty of room for locals to drink, while their rustic feel invites drinkers to linger.

République

Sitting at the long bar here is perhaps the best evening move in town, considering the long wait for tables. Sidle up for a simple daiquiri and watch the bartender get to work.

The Pikey

Don’t let this Hollywood bar’s British veneer fool you: the bar turns out classics from across the globe, including the Cuban-inspired daiquiri.

Hemingway's Lounge

Copy Link

What else is there to order at Hollywood’s lounge-y ode to the man himself? It’s all daiquiri all the time inside this library-looking hotspot.

La Descarga

The Cuban-themed bar that helped anchor the eastern edges of Hollywood, La Descarga still pumps out daiquiris at an amazing rate.

MessHall Kitchen

Copy Link

Los Feliz’s neighborhood gem gets the basics right, and it’s certainly true with their punchy version of the classic daiquiri. Perfect for late-summer sipping next to a pile of their fresh oysters.

Big Bar

Copy Link

Top barmen make Big Bar a nightly pilgrimage, and they’re often asking for simple versions of the classic. Hence the Hemingway’s daiquiri, made just like the old man himself would have wanted.

Caña Rum Bar

Copy Link

Downtown’s favorite rum bar makes perhaps the best daiquiri in the city — why shouldn’t they? — thanks to their impressive house stash of hard-to-source rums.

Preux & Proper

OK, OK. These are a little more frozen and slushy-esque, but who doesn’t love a cheesy change of pace cocktail now and again. It helps that they’re delicious, of course.
