Contemporary American
Latin for "At Your Liberty" - Ad Libitum serves inventive and internationally inspired shareable plates that are grounded in tradition, and crafted to explore bold and eclectic world flavors in New American/California cuisine - that are complimented by a true craft cocktail.



Ad Libitum's bar program was designed by Jay Choi and Ram Udwin, with a focus on modern craft cocktails that are fun and inviting. The cocktail program also features classics and barrel-aged cocktails, freshly squeezed juices, Boy Drinks World Bitters and Nostrum Shrubs. We also feature a curated list of fine wine and local beer.



The restaurant features ample indoor and outdoor seating, in a bright, chic, sexy and modern atmosphere. Our dapper bar features a curated selection of fine spirits and provisions, with an upper "Mezzanine Lounge" that is available for your celebrations and private events.
