At Liberte Marc Yanga Shakes Up New and Classic Cocktails


Along with reinvigorating Sofitel with a sexy new bar and lounge, Liberté, which quietly opened last weekend, has reeled in one of the country’s premier mixologists, Marc Yanga. The talented cocktail shaker has been honing his behind-the-bar skills in Washington DC and Chicago for years. Last year Time Out Chicago named him “Best New/Upcoming Mixologist.” At Liberté Yanga has developed a cocktail list that features original creations as well as creative interpretations of the classics. “Hotel bars are the original epicenters of class and cool,” Yanga told Grub Street. “At Liberté, we’re bringing back the slick, smooth appeal of a perfectly made drink in a refined setting.” Click through to see some of Yanga’s drinks, and let us know with a comment which ones look most appealing.
