Cocktail Menu: CBH Lounge and Bar at the Crescent Beverly Hills

The new cocktail menu at the CBH Lounge and Bar at the Crescent Hotel in Beverly Hills will roll out on June 2. The bar at the Crescent Hotel in Beverly Hills was called Boe from 2003 up until this year, when they renamed and retooled the bar and terrace and brought in a new food and beverage team. 

The Beverage Director for the bar and lounge is Joe Harworth. His bio:

Joe is Crescent Hotel’s Beverage Director and Head Bartender. He has crafted The Crescent’s  signature cocktail list as a collaboration with mentor Kevin Diedrich [of the Crescent San Francisco's Burritt Room].  They have elected to use influences and flavors from around the world while keeping things high flavor and fresh for sunny So Cal.

Originally from Dayton, Ohio, Joe began his career in food and beverage as a means to put himself through school.  He soon realized he had a true passion for mixology.   Since moving to Los Angeles, Joe has honed his talents at local hot spots such as Bar 210 at the Beverly Hills and at LA Live’s new Ritz Carlton & J.W. Marriott where he studied mixology under the close tutelage of Mr. David Nepove.In 2011 Joe joined the team at the Crescent Hotel as part of their renovation with a focus on delivering consistently excellent libations, a wry sense of humor and an inspirational happy hour.  Along with his extensive experience, he brings enthusiasm and a passion for artisanal hand crafted cocktails.

The Crescent has actually always had a decent bar, and is a great, low-key location for those looking for an enjoyable and chill evening. It'll be about the only thing you visit (since it's really not close to anything else of note, unless you still love trader vic's in its new "bar" format at the Beverly Hilton, which is about a mile away). Looking forward to checking some of these out.

although who makes a sazerac without Peychaud's? Seriously?!
