Each year, the Nightclub and Bar Show brings together hundreds of brands and buyers from around the country to introduce and promote new products from spirits to gadgets. It is sometimes hard to believe how many new products come into the market each year and some are hits but others are misses. Here's a little taste of the tradeshow floor:
In addition, a variety of other activities took place during the show.
I finally have a neighborhood cocktail spot - Plan Check Kitchen + Bar. As I willingly drive all over Los Angeles for great cocktails, an easy 10 minute walk from my place makes this rather exciting! The excitement might make me biased but the truth is the food and cocktails live up to the expectation. One cannot expect anything less as Chef Ernesto Uchimura (Umami Burger) is behind the food and the cocktail program was designed by the powerhouse duo Steve Livigni and Pablo Moix, who are also responsible for La Descarga, Harvard and Stone and Black Market Liquor Bar.
