Imagine globetrotting around the globe without ever having to step foot in a congested TSA line, all the while enjoying a delicious one-of-a-kind cocktail at each stop you make. No, teleportation has not been miraculously figured out. And trust, no sorcery is involved — unless you count the magic the bartenders are working at Gate Bar Centro, a new cocktail tasting menu at The Bazaar and SLS Hotel Beverly Hills in Los Angeles, CA.
Here, the mixology masters of the program are taking your tastebuds on a traipse around the world via distinct ingredients and drinks indicative to the area. For instance, imagine being shifted into the warm, inviting shores of Copacabana in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil via an "LN2 Caipirinha," which is essentially a traditional Brazilian caipirinha cocktail miraculously turned into frozen sorbet form.
Or picture yourself headed to Russia's Caspian Sea by experiencing an unparalleled interpretation of a Dirty Martini — in caviar form. The application of molecular knowhow along with the thoughtful approach to using key ingredients unique to each location is a testament to just how singular the experience is at Gate Bar Centro.
So don't worry about the fasten your seatbelt sign, instead turn your attention to the twelve destinations you're bound for, all in cocktail form. It's jet setting at its finest, complete with masterfully crafted cocktails that capture the essence of the country they're most proud to represent.
