Party at Topaz!
If you want to be treated like Rockstar Royalty, throw a bash at Topaz Bar.
Lounge Manager, Mike Hill, sets the tone - chill, friendly, relaxed with subtle flair... (yes the lounge has those qualities, too!)
The Liquid Muse is shifting 'home base' back to Los Angeles so we pulled together a few friends for drinks and appetizers on Saturday at Topaz. We were totally spoiled.
Lounging on velvety banquettes in the Zen Den, our three attentive cocktailers (Margot, Jillien and Rose) delivered libations with a smile. The DJ spun funky beats. Perfect.
And, as a special honor, our party got to sneak-peek Topaz’s newest creations. The ‘cocktail enthusiast’ in me was in 7th Heaven! Their new drinks whoop-a**!
Bruce ‘Lee’che uses one of my favorite new liquors, Absolut Ruby Red, with lychee puree, triple sec and fresh lemon.
Grandmaster of Grapes blends Ciroc grape-distilled vodka, organic white grape juice, red wine, lime juice and frozen grape clusters.
Tokyo, defined as “manhattan in Japan” mixes bourbon, sake, organic plum nectar and angostura bitters.
Finally, their Razzberry Mojito is better than most mojito-and-some-kind-of-fruit variations.
The appetizers were delish and the gorgeous fruit-and-cheese plate (hand-delivered from Bar Rouge !) was a hit. Finally, a surprise champagne toast was the icing on the cake.
I make no apologies for the pun - Topaz is a gem!
