Happy hour just got personal. L’Auberge Del Mar, the quintessential Southern California hotel, restaurant and bar by the sea, has announced a new experience for those happy hour-hunters looking for a twist. L’Happy Hour –- running Monday through Thursday from 4:30pm to 6:30pm in the Living Room Bar –- features an up-close dose of classic tableside craft-cocktail service.
That’s right – during L’Happy Hour, the expert team of mixologists at L’Auberge will roll up a custom-designed cart right to your table. With a front-row seat to the cocktail crafting action, guests are immersed in this interactive experience. Mixologists will serve while schooling on the basics of mixing, garnishing and cocktail chemistry.
Tableside service is no longer a thing of the past, and the L’Auberge Living Room Bar is making it all about libations. The hand-crafted cocktail list features a few fresh fusions, and one drink that’ll make you take a second look. Try the Spicy Watermelon Margarita with lime, agave nectar and jalapeno; Pear-Fect Martini with cinnamon, pear and lemon; and Summer in Paris with prosecco, muddled cucumber and gin, priced at $17 each.
Oh, you fancy? The L’Bling Bling cocktail is more than a shiny new treasure. This $500 cocktail does its own take on the classic Sidecar with Louis XIII, Grand Marnier, Quintessence, Cristal Simple Syrup and Opus One bitters.
Still thirsty? L’Happy Hour also features $8 hand-crafted cocktails, $2 off wine by the glass and half-price flatbread and cheese boards. Head in on Wednesdays and Thursdays for live music; Just for L'Happy Hour, receive two hours of complementary parking.
L’Auberge is located in the picturesque coastal village of Del Mar, at 1540 Camino Del Mar. L’Happy Hour runs Monday through Thursday from 4:30pm to 6:30pm in the Living Room Bar.
