You read right. Renowned mixologist Alex Day had teamed up with David Kaplan, co-owner of Death & Co in New York, to form their own hospitality consultation company, Proprietors LLC. And the two took over the operations of Bar & Kitchen in O Hotel downtown back in October. And apparently this was all on the hush-hush.
But the most exciting part is that now I don’t have to wait for one of those guest bartending gigs at Red Rover or Radio Room to enjoy Alex Day’s cocktails. PLUS, even though the cocktail list is small, they’re only $10 each. A huge bargain in downtown L.A. where drinks are usually about $12 and up.
