Hollywood, CA-  On Sunday, June 17 a collective of LA's top bartenders will come together at for "Art Beyond The Glass," a fundraiser that features a variety of art, music, DJs, live performances and cocktails for a cause at Sadie in Hollywood from 3:00 pm to 8:00 pm to benefit Inner-City Arts (www.inner-cityarts.org)Los Angeles' cocktail community boasts some of the best bartenders in the country, many of whom happen to be fine artists and compelling live performers, such as Tasting Kitchen’s Justin Pike (live chalk artist), Areal’s Mia Sarazen (photographer), Roe Restaurant & Fish Market’s Erik Trickett (musician), and Joshua Lucas of the Writer’s Room (magician), just to name a few.  These and thirty other top LA bartenders will come together on Sunday, June 17th for the first time in support of this ground-breaking cause.  

Art Beyond the Glass is the brainchild of Providence’s Bar Manager, Zahra Bates and Daniel Djang, founder and editor of award-winning cocktail blog, Thirsty in LA (www.thirstyinla.com).  Bates and Djang created Art Beyond the Glass as an outlet to express and showcase the creative pursuits of these amazing artists while being able to give back to the community in a powerful way and support the arts overall.

 As Art Beyond the Glass features a rotating mix of art and live music, L.A.'s Top Bartender/Artists will also be serving drinks that highlight L.A.’s dynamic cocktail culture.  Simultaneously, L.A.’s multi-talented drink slingers will feature their photographs, paintings, live graffiti art, a classical piano recital and multiple live performances.



Sponsoring brands will generously serve cocktails and provide special tastings throughout the evening as well.  These sponsors include Infinium Spirits, Karlsson’s Vodka, Sailor Jerry, Becherovka, Campari Gruppo, Java Juice, Atlantico Rum, Akvinta Vodka, St. George Spirits, Heaven Hill Distilleries, Henry Wine Group and 123 Tequila. Additional sponsorship and support provided by dineLA and smartwater. Without the support of these brands, Art Beyond the Glass would not be possible.As hosting restaurant, Sadie will showcase the inspired fare of Consulting Chef Mark Gold, along with the talents of Sadie's Director of Spirits, Giovanni Martinez and the Sadie Bar Team who will donate their cocktail making efforts directly to Art Beyond the Glass.
