Today, I will hold the last Elemental Mixology course session at the old location in the house from 1906. It is, without doubt, the end of an era. The contractor has virtually completed work on the new Elemental Mixology bar at a new address in the West Adams area of Los Angeles. In terms of function and space, it will be a clear improvement over the previous location. In terms of historic charm…. perhaps not. The bar, back bar, appliances, ingredients and such are due to be moved starting tomorrow.
All of this costs a lot of money, of course. In the need to raise some money, Elemental Mixology is offering a very few Cushion Subscriptions. A Cushion Subscription entitles the subscriber to attend any or all sessions of any or all runs of the Standard Mixing Course, the Master Mixing Course, the Ingredient Fabrication Course, the Liquor Stewards’ Course and others for the duration of the subscription. A one-year subscription will cost $1,800. Compared to the full normal price of all those courses, this is a huge discount of well over 50%. Only a very few subscription spots will be available.
