Cocktail Pop-ups: Craftails at Craft on Friday; Hawthorn at LTO Tonight

Downstairs bar at LTO.
Downstairs bar at LTO.

Two cocktail pop-ups to tell you about: First, as we mentioned before, in addition to Fatty Crew’s dinners at LTO, there’ll be guest bartenders in the downstairs lounge. Tomorrow the Rusty Knot’s Toby Maloney holds court, and tonight, drinks are care of the Hawthorn Beverage Group. If you’re walking into the bar, see tonight’s à la carte menu here, and if you have dinner reservations, here’s the pairing menu. Meanwhile, the folks at Craft tells us that on Friday they’ll turn their private dining room into a cocktail bar called Craftails, featuring $12 cocktails from bartender Sean McClure, and free bar snacks like housemade grissini wrapped with house-cured ham, Old Bay shrimp chips, and suckling pig ballotine with radish slaw and truffled popcorn. Below are some of the drinks he’ll be serving — it remains to be seen whether additional dates will be added.
