At Revere, we just love rooftop cocktails. There’s not much better than a killer cocktail with a view of the skyline.
Over at WeHo’s newest addition to the rooftop dining craze, the Asian eating house E.P & L.P. is kicking off a monthly guest bartender takeover series this Monday, August 10. Beverage Director Alex Straus is hosting Paul McGee and Erin Hayes of Chicago’s Lost Lake, a tropical tiki bar leading the tiki revival. The monthly guest bartender series will take place at Frankie’s Private Bar within the L.P. Rooftop space. Curated by EP & LP’s in-house bev director Alex Straus, the cocktail savant who has crafted over 3o original bespoke cocktails on the E.P. & L.P.’s menus, the line-up includes top tier mixologists form across the globe, featuring renowned mixologists form Chicago, Miami, Sweden, and more. The even will showcase popular cocktail trends around the world.
“I want to bring in guests that appeal to the public but more importantly display what the different bar communities are excited about around the world,” says Straus. “We are building an incubator where people can learn from great artists who are showcasing new and distinctive bartending styles.”
Revere’s pick to start your week is a specialty drink or two paired with small bites from Exec Chef Louis Tikaram.
