JANUARY 25: SANTA MONICA’S BARKER HANGAR TO HOST THE WHISKYX
New Kind of Whisky Experience Brings Together Established and Emerging Whisky Brands with music by St. Paul & The Broken Bones, plus chefs, food trucks and more
Santa Monica, CA – The WhiskyX, a multi-city experiential whisky discovery platform, is coming back to Barker Hangar in Santa Monica on January 25, 2019 from 6pm-10pm.
Returning to the Los Angeles area for its second year, the event, which has also stopped in Brooklyn, Denver, Chicago, and Austin, features whisky tastings from more than 60 long-established and emerging whisky brands along with great music, food trucks, top chefs, and more.
Whisky brand ambassadors and bartenders will be on hand to introduce guests to whiskies across the Bourbon, Scotch, Single Malt, American Whisky, and Rye categories as well as cocktails using these spirits as a base. It all happens in an atmosphere that’s as exciting for those new to whisky as it is for seasoned aficionados.
A complete list of whisky and food offerings can be found here.
“The WhiskyX was created for new whisky drinkers, while still a lot of fun for the whisky connoisseur. You can discover and learn about some of the world’s best whiskies next to exciting newcomers. The melding of great whiskies with music, interesting food and some fun things you don’t expect like free beard shaving, hair trims from Blind Barber, and a cigar lounge make for an amazing night of discovery,” said Brandon Baptiste, Vice President of The WhiskyX.
Local LA Chefs and Food Trucks
In addition to whisky, The WhiskyX will treat guests to bites from top local LA chefs and food trucks. Among the trucks are The Woke Truck, White Rabbit Food Truck, Street Kitchen LA, The Taco Cartel, and Chinese Laundry.
St. Paul & The Broken Bones are the featured performers at the Los Angeles WhiskyX this year.
Following the release of its new album “Young Sick Camellia,” the high voltage, Birmingham, Alabama-based band just played to a packed house at LA’s Wiltern Theatre in October 2018. Lead vocalist Paul Janeway is a dynamic and passionate performer whose songwriting has been inspired by artists ranging from Prince to Thom Yorke to Otis Redding.
“LA is an incredibly passionate music town with a real hunger for discovery of bands like St. Paul & The Broken Bones whose following is growing rapidly. We’re excited to bring them to LA!” said Brian Murphy, CEO of The WhiskyX.
