At Sherry Yard's new Tuck Room Tavern, located in Westwood next to iPic Theater, it isn't just about the culinary offerings or even the craft cocktails, but the ice DJ. Ice DJ! This commander of chill, fixer of frost, and guru of la glace is the bartender in the ice DJ booth who hand-carves ice from a 45-pound crystal-clear block for every cocktail, from your Old Fashioned to large punch bowls.
The booth allows guests to really get close to the action without fear of getting ice shards on them. So they get to ooh and aah at the ice getting cut up right before their eyes for their cocktails. Sorry though, no mixtapes here.
Considering ice's rise to importance as a cocktail presentation component and even ingredient, Tuck Room Tavern just upped its ice game with the only dedicated ice DJ booth in town. And you thought the laser-etched ice ball at The Montage's Ten Pound bar was super cool.
