Welcome Mixology 101, a refreshing open air (when the weather allows!) bar sitting atop the Bath & Body Works at Farmer’s Market! The view is primo supremo and the cocktail concoctions offer a “whatever your pleasure” respite from a shop-til-you-drop excursion to the Grove.
Mixology 101 is the fancy sister-bar to its neighboring Planet Dailies, a Las Vegas-based eatery owned by the Planet Hollywood team. Both Mixology 101 and Planet Dailies focus on the fresh vegetables and fruits available from the Farmer’s Market – how’s that for a nice little sustainable ecosystem?!
Also nice is the insane cocktail menu curated by master bartender Salvatore Calabrese (aka The Maestro) and his head bartender, Joseph Brooke from the Next Door Lounge and The Edison. For our special pre-opening visit, we sampled the:
Farmer's Martini - Frozen Stoli Elit, Blue curacao, Salvatore's Bitters (featuring Amalfi Coast lemons from Sal’s hometown!), and Champagne
Joseph Brooke and the Maestro making the Farmer's Martini!
Kobe Beef Sliders and Lemon Tempura Shrimp
Szechuan Eggplant and Black & Blue Steak
Watermelon and Feta Bites and Beautiful Dessert Arrangement :)
