The answer is six weeks. Right now Julian Cox - responsible for lubricating guests at Rivera, Sotto, Playa, Picca, Short Order - plus Josh Goldman of ink. are together recruiting "bartenders for their dream bar," which is opening within Bill Chait and Rob Serritella's Mess Hall in Los Feliz. They're searching for "motivated bartenders, line cooks, baristas, tattoo artists, and circus clowns to apply for a voluntary six-week training program." Those who pass the test will nab a job at Cox and Goldman's "dream bar."
Goldman explains that Mess Hall will serve a blend of classic and new American cocktails with an emphasis on domestic distillates. They're also building out a "drink lab or a bartenders version of Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory." Fun.
