90’s Tunes and Drop-Dead Delicious Cocktails
Last night’s Life in Color pop-up art show was the perfect midweek outing for my girlfriend and I. Hosted inside Pour Vous, a stylish speakeasy with all the right perks, the Melrose bar boasted more than just delicious craft cocktails…
Anne’s artwork is the type of art that I can totally see on display at The Broad or LACMA. Bold, colorful and contemporary. Her art added pops of color throughout the dimly lit bar and I would have totally purchased a piece if I had been carrying $500 in my pocket (tear).
While I did not walk out with a McFerran piece, I was able to snap a few of my favorites:
Another treat that tickled my taste buds was the back patio crepe stand. The menu offered gluten free and organic ingredients (hello its LA) and while I really wanted to splurge on one, I decided to just stick with my cocktail. The main event on the patio was the infamous trolley cart, a permanent fixture perfect for a smoke break or a selfie (we opted for selfies.)
On the topic of cocktails, this one here is the much Yelped about “Dublin Jam”; a must-try infusion of Jameson, raspberry jam, a fresh hibiscus flower placed delicately on top and a spritz of lavender. Even the bar patrons watched in awe as the bartender created my beautiful cocktail. God, it was almost too pretty to drink, but I’m glad I did…
The real treat of the night, however, was seeing McFerran in action. Calm and collected, she live-sketched the bodybuilder model of the night (who also looked like a blast from the 90’s) in between sips of her Stella Artois.
Pour Vous is definitely a sweet spot I would recommend checking out, if but only to enjoy a Dublin Jam!
