Description


Los Angeles is a place that makes you thirsty. The dry air, the hot sun, the noir history--all leave us wanting a good, strong drink in a dark and moody bar. Fitzgerald and Faulkner drank here, so did Bukowski and Chandler. Oh, and pretty much everyone else, from Bugsy Siegel and Mickey Cohen to Cary Grant and Marilyn Monroe. Even Elvis bellied up to the bar in this town. Now it's your turn. "Los Angeles Cocktails" is more than a book; it's a photographic adventure that enables us to explore Los Angeles, imbibe at the city's best bars, and taste, via cocktails, the city's colorful history. To be published in 2017 by Sunset & Venice, "Los Angeles Cocktails" features LA's most inspired watering holes. From landmarks such as Musso & Frank's, where you're sure to get the perfect pour, to today's incarnations of the classics, hidden away behind secret doors. From authentic, midcentury tiki bars to simulated speakeasies, these spots offer well-made drinks and an inviting atmosphere. Whether the joint has history or invents it, these are places that can't be found anywhere else and that capture a certain essence of the city--be it bitter, sweet, or sour.
