Building on the bonds that were forged at the inaugural Art Beyond the Glass between bartenders, brands and community, ART BEYOND THE GLASS II is taking place on Sunday, June 30, 2013 at the historic Los Angeles Athletic Club in downtown LA. Dozens of LA's top bartenders will mix cocktails and showcase their art, music, photography and much more. Proceeds from ABTG II will benefit Art Share LA, a vital non-profit located in the Arts District of downtown.
Among the bartenders returning for ABTG II are Julian Cox (Soigné Group); bartender/artist Brian Butler (Sunny Spot); bartender/artist Justin Pike (The Tasting Kitchen); magician Joshua Lucas (Writers Room); and DJs Dave Fernie (Pour Vous) and Steve Livigni (Old Lightning).
First time participants include emcee Aidan Demarest (Neat, Liquid Assets); Beau DuBois (The Corner Door); Chris Ojeda (Soho House); artist Brittini Rae Peterson (Goldie’s); DJ Dino Balocchi (Littlefork); bartender/DJ Paul Sanguinetti (Patina Group); and furniture designer Philip Renderer (Seven Grand).
