L.A.'s Cocktail Community Gets Crafty at Art Beyond the Glass

Turns out L.A.'s bustling cocktail community is pretty crafty, and not just when it comes to building a decent drink. To showcase those hidden talents, Sadie will host some of our city's finest bartenders-cum-artists at an event called Art Beyond the Glass on Sunday, June 17.

The gathering is the brainchild of Providence Bar Manager Zahra Bates and Daniel Djang, founder and editor of Thirsty in LA. The two have managed to snap up some serious talent; looking through the lineup, it's hard to think of what rock star bartender isn't going to be at the event. Some will be behind the stick, and others will be showcasing their visual and performance art.

Unfortunatly we can't offer you virtual samples to of the cocktails, we did build a gallery of some of the artwork that will be on display.

Art Beyond the Glass will take place from 3:00- 8:00 p.m., which gives you plenty of time to brunch with Dad for Father's Day, and then head over to check out the art. Heck, he might even want to join. For tickets to the open bar event ($40 in advance, $50 at the door), visit their site. A portion of the proceeds will go benefit Inner-City Arts.
