Bar [www.deathandcompany.com]), and Erick Castro (Bourbon & Branch Bar, and most recently San Francisco’s RICKHOUSE Bar [www.rickhousebar.com]). Acclaimed for their own unique vision and distinctive drink profiles, each barman brings to Radio Room menus that include both signature beverages, as well as cocktails created solely for this event.

Introducing A NIGHT WITH NÉVE
A Pop Up Bar of Delicious Proportion
Each month, barman Michel Dozois will bring his luxury ice, his talented mixologist friends from around the city and country, and the cutting edge of cocktail creativity to A NIGHT WITH NÉVE. One month, the event might be hosted by an area restaurant, the next in a discreet alleyway alongside a famous LA Taco Truck, the studio of a local artist, a Hollywood Hills garden patio or perhaps atop the stage of a major opera production. The location will be announced via LA area food and cocktail blogs, with RSVP’s strictly limited to an intimate number, allowing for up close and personal contact with the bartenders, the specially sourced and curated products, and… the drink. At the center of each evening will be the ice products of Néve, the single ingredient that will forever change the cocktail as you know it. Each event scenario will vary, from ‘Social Meet & Greets,’ to ‘Cocktail Preparation & Instruction,’ to ‘Movie Night’ or ‘A Peek Backstage.’
The inaugural NIGHT WITH NEVE will be held at the Charcuterie Bar of Pasadena’s Bar Celona Restaurant. Attendees and invited guests may RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that attendance for the first event will be strictly limited and guests must receive reservation confirmation. Hors d’ oeuvres and paired bites will be served with each course of cocktail. The first event will be charged per cocktail, with future event pricing dependent upon location and cocktail production.
