The mind of Aidan Demarest of Tello/Demarest Liquid Assets is devilish indeed. The former GM of Seven Grand and the Edison will be hosting the Night of Rising Spirits on the evening of Saturday October 30th at the new Les Deux to celebrate All Hallows Eve and the relaunch of Les Deux with an all star lineup of bartenders from across the country.
Not only will advertised bartenders Simon Ford from London, Erick Castro from San Francisco (ex Rickhouse), Jennifer Contraveos of Chicago and LA's very own Naomi Schimek (First & Hope) be on hand but they will be joined by local hotshots Damian Windsor of the Roger Room and Grady Purtle of Palihouse. Note that Ford and Castro are part of the Pernod Ricard mafia.
Admission to the event is only $10 and requires an RSVP on the website and a costume. No costume, no admission, no exceptions. The party begins at 8 pm and goes til closing. Note that there will be a cash bar for beverages and part of the proceeds go to the charity the International Rescue Committee. Demarest described the festivity as a tasty treat he was serving up, so don't miss out as this is a one night one time only offer. Sometime it pays to make a deal with the devil when the terms are this good...
