Classic Cocktails and Bourbon at the Thirsty Crow Pre Party

Last night, Bobby Green and the 1933 group soft opened their latest bar, the Thirsty Crow, for friends, family, and media. The space has an old pre-war 1940s feel complete with a jukebox, circular bar in the center, outdoor smoking area, comfy vintage couches and even a fire place for those cold LA nights. But, here it's all about the drinks. Skipping the growing trend of crafted cocktails, the bar only serves classic American cocktails along with a few beers, wine, and of course, Bourbon. Most of the bottles that are stocked on the shelves (between 40 -50 ) are rare and hard to find gems including the Van Winkle's Family Reserve 23 and Rittenhouse Rye Whiskey 21 which will set you back a pretty penny. A shot of Van Winkle costs $40 while a shot of Rittenhouse costs $22.

As for cocktails, last night we tried a Sazerac, Mint Julep and a very tasty Marmalade Manhattan. For the chocolate lover out there, try the Mole Manhattan. Our personal fave, and the overall crowd pleaser, had to be the signature drink, the Thirsty Crow made with Sazerac rye whiskey, citrus, ginger beer and bitters. If you just don’t know much about whiskey, never fear as every Sunday from 9PM to close the bar hosts a whiskey education classes in the form of flights ($20-100 depending on the whiskey). The Thirsty Crow officially opens tomorrow.
