It was a sad day when Julian Cox departed LA to accept a position in Chicago, leaving behind is magnum opus, The Fiscal Agent. Well now, the Studio City bar above Barrel & Ashes has a new man in charge, Chris Amirault.
Amirault has kept himself busy over the past few years under the tutelage of Julian Cox. After working at Eveleigh, Chris opened Harlowe before moving on to Clifton's Cafeteria. Now at The Fiscal Agent, Amirault is working with Sprout Group's Director of Beverage Operations Nick Meyer to roll out new cocktails weekly, with a spring menu coming soon.
The cocktail mecca has a few other exciting updates, including an expansion of their operating days to include Tuesdays. The bar will now be open Tuesday through Saturday from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m., with a daily happy hour from 5 to 7 p.m. and reverse happy hour Tuesday through Thursdays from 10 p.m. to 12 a.m. On offer will be $9 classic cocktails along with bites like $3 hush puppies and a $9 burger to soak it all up.
