Island-Inspired Cocktail Bar ‘Gin Rummy’ Opens on the Westside Memorial Day Weekend

Gin Rummy – An Island-Inspired Cocktail Bar Opens on the Westside Memorial Day Weekend

Renowned Los Angeles bar proprietor Jared Meisler (The Roger Room, Bar Lubitsch, The Friend and The Little Friend) and the exemplary team of David and Patti Reiss of Reiss Co. (The Brig and The Alibi Room) announce the opening of a new westside cocktail establishment, GIN RUMMY, on Friday, May 26, 2023.

 

The cocktail program is masterfully led by Beverage Directors Danilo Kim, formerly of The Alibi Room and Nueva and Marcus Ragas, whose resume includes The Chestnut Club and Caboco.

Located at 822 Washington Boulevard, Marina del Rey, adjacent to Meisler’s popular Little Friend, GIN RUMMY takes over NUEVA after a successful three-year run.

Meisler states that he and his partners saw a need for a large and welcoming bar space in the neighborhood.

Meisler states:

“I’ve always loved the cocktails that come from beach cultures, just as much as I love the imagery and feel of beachy bars. I see a through line between a Tiki Bar, a Cuban Rum Bar, a Mexican Cantina, a Brazilian Quisque, a Spanish Chiringuito and a Venice Beach watering hole. They’re all timeless, relaxed, and fun, serving fantastic and unique drinks…

“…Gin Rummy is an homage to all things Beach Bar, from Nautical to Tropical, in a vintage parlor.”

At this gateway to Venice, GIN RUMMY invites passersby to escape to the tropics and get swept away, sipping exotic cocktails and enjoying delicious snacks in a pirate’s lair.

Gin Rummy’s spacious 200-seat setting…

 

The spacious 200-seat setting… reimagined and designed by Jared Meisler creates a colorful and ornate island paradise marrying nautical and South Pacific themes with contemporary design.

Enter Gin Rummy’s large front door…

Enter GIN RUMMY through the large front door just off Washington and take in the huge zinc-top mahogany bar with shelves stacked with vast arrays of rum, gin, tequila, and mezcal along with decorative tchotchkes of ships in bottles.

A large bank of skylights above the bar provides soft sunlight during golden hour as guests relax in a convivial state of mind.

When dusk turns to night, the far wall is illuminated by a row of vintage island-themed pinball machines giving GIN RUMMY a timeless, comfortable feel.

As one’s eye travels the room, imbibers take in giant redwood beams supporting a tongue and grove ceiling adorned by funky glassware. Native and tribal prints cover the bar stools and wood booths.

Scattered around the room are mini palm trees and lush tropical plants adorned with brass ship hardware. The thick posts are wrapped in nautical rope and accented with imagery of Caribbean and Polynesian life, ocean and boats and jungle paintings. Other notes include large bone-inlaid mirrors, woven wood light fixtures, rattan chairs, and lazy ceiling fans for a sultry Key Largo effect.

On Gin Rummy’s Outside…

 

Outside, the convertible indoor/outdoor patio exudes a tropical sandy beachy village vibe, adorned with wood carvings and carved wooden mirrors. The natural oak tables are painted with checker and backgammon boards, inviting guests to linger and play games comfortably in reclined rattan chairs. Lush tropical foliage is covered by a mahogany pergola illuminating the space with brass ship lights.

 

Gin Rummy’s playful craft cocktail bar program

 

At GIN RUMMY, Beverage Directors Marcus Ragas and Danilo Kim have created an inventive and playful craft cocktail bar program and menu:

Fun drinks equal a fun vibe. Look for categories of FROZEN RUMMYS, STIRRED and TIKI, classic and imaginative HIGHBALLS, as well as the irresistible COCKTAILS FOR FOUR that look back to the legendary Trader Vic’s from days gone by.

Los Angeles’ Top Halloween Events in 2022 (Updated)

October is here!  Time for Los Angeles’ Top Halloween Events in 2022

The City of Angels hosts some of the US’s biggest parties – including the West Hollywood Halloween Parade.  But we’re going beyond, including both the biggest parties and also great events beyond Lala Land itself.

There’s plenty of ways to celebrate the spooky season this year in the SoCal, from family friendly fun to adult-level screams and scares.

We’re listing them all out for you, and updating them as we discover more.

Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights

Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights

Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights

Battle your favorite movie baddies at Universal Studios’ annual Halloween festivities, where big-budget scares meet iconic horror characters. 

Your gang can navigate multiple scare zones and mazes, including ones based on the Weeknd (yes, from “Blinding Lights” singer ) , Halloween, The Black Phone, Killer Klowns from Outer Space and the OG classic trio of the Wolf Man, Dracula and the Mummy. 

And more….!  The “Terror Tram” takeover of the studio tour will return with a Jordan Peele mash-up featuring the Tethered doppelgängers from Us in the Jupiter’s Claim area from Nope.

Los Angeles' Top Halloween Events in 2022

Danny Elfman returns to the Hollywood Bowl

Danny Elfman at the Bowl

Danny Elfman returns to the Hollywood Bowl for his best Halloween show yet!

This time he doesn’t only celebrate “A Nightmare Before Christmas”.  It’s even more!

Inspired by his Coachella success, it’s a high-energy, metal-meets-classical-meets silly and freaky – with plenty of funky – including songs from Oingo Boingo, and his famous film and TV music, including Batman, Edward Scissorhands and The Simpsons.

Cinespia

The Halloween spook classic continues!

In October, Cinespia will show The Thing and Carrie at Hollywood Forever Cemetery. 

The series will host a gothic masquerade at the Los Angeles Theatre for a screening of Bram Stoker’s Dracula on Halloween weekend.

Delusion

In previous years,  Halloween fans screamed their way through the Victorian home and while on a Blade Runner-inspired hunt. 

This year the celebrated immersive horror event returns to L.A. at a 147-year-old mansion where you and  your friends will “deprogram” a 1970s cult.

Walt Disney Concert Hall

Walt Disney Concert Hall

Halloween Organ & Film

Every year the Walt Disney Concert Hall brings the spooky season into their music halls.  This year there will be a silent film screening  of the 1920 masterpiece The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. accompanied by organist Clark Wilson for an extra eerie feel. 

 

Los Angeles Haunted Hayride

This haunted Griffith Park hayride, which has been running for well over a decade now, returns to the mid-’80s fictitious town of Midnight Falls, inspired by Sons of Anarchy and Twin Peaks

 

Rooftop Cinema Club

Starting early in September a schedule of Halloween favorites will play at their El Segundo, Arts District and DTLA rooftops. The thrills continue as Halloween approaches, with Hocus Pocus, Get Out, Halloween, Coco and Beetlejuice, among more.

 

‘Frankenstein’ with Live Orchestra

The LA Opera and the Theatre at Ace Hotel partner again for a mash-up of live music and film. 

Indulge in the Ace’s gothic auditorium for a screening of the 1931 Boris Karloff classic, Frankenstein, with live accompaniment from LA Opera Orchestra.

PS: the actual movie was released without a score, so composer Michael Shapiro was inspired to create an entirely original devilish soundtrack.  

After the October 26 showing of the Ace’s “A Hitchcock Halloween,” join the fun for a haunted costume party in the hotel theater’s lobby.

Lucha VaVOOM: Bienvenido a la Twilight Zone

Lucha VaVOOM: Bienvenido a la Twilight Zone

Lucha VaVOOM: Bienvenido a la Twilight Zone

Lucha VaVOOM is a unique mix of sexo y violencia especially for the Mayan’s exuberant spectacle— Halloween-themed “Bienvenido a la Twilight Zone.” 

Good vs. evil plays out in a sinful circus of masked Mexican wrestling, burlesque stripteasing and comedic commentating. Plenty of tequila and tamales as you party with Aztec dancers and luchadores.

Sometimes there is just no getting out of a bad situation. The best thing to do is embrace it.  The Irish Goodbye is humility in a glass.  There is no smoother way to turn the evening around than with a little sip of this.

Before prohibition, Rye was America’s favorite whiskey. The Alcan Highway is the only road to Alaska. Combine them both and you are destined for a trip that is light on the tongue with a long finish.

Smokey & The Bandit – $16 Ilegal Mezcal, Lime, Allspice, Orange, Vanilla, Cinnamon

Illegal Mezcal is a 100% agave Espadin with varietal notes of sweet and spicy peppers, balanced by grapefruit, pineapple and blood orange. A deep smoke and gentle burn make it the perfect cocktail ingredient. Add a few distinct flavors and you are definitely getting away with something.

Chai Whiskey Sour – Buffalo Trace, Chai Tea, Lemon, Egg White, Cinnamon, Star Anise

Dita Von Teese Brings the world’s biggest burlesque show, ‘Glamonatrix’ to Los Angeles in 2023

Dita Von Teese announced that she will be bringing the world’s biggest burlesque show, ‘Glamonatrix’ to North America next year.

Produced by Live Nation, the 21-date tour kicks off on January 7th, 2023, in Seattle, WA at the Paramount Theatre, making stops across North America in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New Orleans, New York, and more along with a special performance on Valentine’s Day at The Chicago Theatre.

The tour hits three cities in Texas, plus Dita’s home state of Michigan, with a finale show in Riverside, CA at the Fox Performing Arts Center on February 24th.

Dita’s burlesque show continues to break records as the biggest and most lavish burlesque show in history.

Dita Von Teese is About Confidence

Hot on the heels of her 41-show tour overseas in historic theaters, including The London Palladium, Opera Garnier Monte Carlo, Folies Bergère and Vienna’s Burgtheatre, Dita is thrilled to bring the Glamonatrix burlesque revue to cities across the United States and Canada.

 

The Glamonatrix Tour is produced and directed by Dita Von Teese

and sponsored by Sweet Gwendoline French Gin and Lashify.com, inventor of DIY Lash extensions.

“For me, burlesque has always been about finding my own confidence,

liberating the taboo of striptease with fantastical  stripscapes,

while encouraging others to indulge in and enjoy their own sensuality.

Glamour is the art of creating mystery and allure,

and the new “Glamonatrix” show speaks to unapologetic sensual power with a fun fetishistic twist.”

says Von Teese.

She continues, “I feel so fortunate that burlesque has come to symbolize a celebration of beauty and sensuality in many forms, a place where diversified icons take the stage and inspire others. I’m proud to be a part of the modern burlesque movement and I’m grateful to have the chance to tour with performers who change people’s minds about striptease.”

TICKETS: Tickets go on sale to the general public starting Friday, September 16th at 10:00 AM Local Time on Ticketmaster.com.

PRESALE: Citi is the official card of the Glamonatrix Tour.

Always ahead of the curve, Dita’s show casting has consistently been inclusive and multi-faceted, showcasing the talents of male, female, and gender-fluid performers from around the world to create a body-positive, celebratory show like no other.

As the consummate performer in modern burlesque, Von Teese’s exhilarating live shows are world-renowned and draw fans from every corner of the globe. With over a million tickets sold, and an unprecedented quality of production in burlesque, it is clear why Von Teese’s self-produced tours are the gold standard of the modern burlesque revival, with devoted fans that include A-list celebrities.

The uber-glamorous variety show presents extravagant new production numbers from Dita and the cast, with costumes created by Jenny Packham, Mister Pearl, Alexis Mabille, Catherine D’Lish and more. Shoe aficionados will delight in the extraordinary bespoke fetish footwear by Christian Louboutin, some of which are currently on display as part of the Louboutin  “L’Exhibition(iste)” in Monaco.

The Glamonatrix show showcases the most revered performers in burlesque, including the legendary Dirty Martini. Dita’s dapperVontourage and choreographer Alek Palinski returns to the stage, along with fan-favorite Zelia Rose, one of the lead performers of Hamilton Australia. Dita is also pleased to introduce showstopping newcomer Lana Kai Fox, along with Tosca Rivola and Laszlo Major. Jonny McGovern of “Hey Qween!” and “Go-Go for the Gold” returns as host, due to popular demand from fans around the world.

Chef Sklar’s Cheese and Chicken Enchiladas are a family favorite and her Carnitas and Chili Beef Burritos are packed with flavor.

“We make everything in-house from our pickles to our salsas, carnitas, and our tortillas,”

states Sklar.

El Granjero Cantina’s tortillas are extremely special as Sklar spent months looking for the perfect blend of fresh corn masa and maseca(dry corn flour) to create a unique texture that resembles a flour tortilla. Says Sklar, “Our Tortillas are soft, pliable, full of moisture and fantastic flavor. The density reminds me of a tamale and every tortilla is handmade to order every time.”
