Chris Hansen and Cijo Mathews Lola opened in 2010; it's now co-owned by Matthews and Eddie Holman. Hansen now operates the Dark Room wine bar and photography gallery. You can read our original 2010 review here. We also named it the best place for cocktails that year.

We recently scoped out Lola's sweet happy-hour deals, but you've only got a few more days to enjoy them. Holman did not immediately respond for comment; we'll update if he does.
