What to Drink at Pickled, a Cocktail Pop-Up Tonight at Absinthe

Absinthe bar manager Carlos Yturria is hosting the first of a series of monthly cocktail events tonight in the private dining room at Absinthe, and we’re guessing the scene will be rife with industry folk since it is, after all, Monday. The pop-up event is called Pickled, and it will feature a new list each time and bar bites from sous chef Allison Harvey and pastry chef Luis Villavelazquez. (Note: Jamie Lauren’s last day was Saturday, and she’s off for L.A.)

Carlos took up the helm at Absinthe’s bar last winter from Jonny Raglin and Jeff Hollinger, who moved on to open up Comstock Saloon, and this event seems like a good way for him to show off his skills to a new audience.

Pickled happens tonight, and the last Monday of every month, from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. at 388 Hayes Street, which is the side entrance to Absinthe’s private dining room.
