Special K&L Dinners and Tastings
October 18: SOLD OUT: Special Bordeaux Tasting in Hollywood with Owner Clyde Beffa Jr!
Almost 50 years ago, Clyde read a Playboy magazine on the flight to his honeymoon that would change his life forever. The article was all about collecting wine—a novelty at the time—and it sparked an interest that eventually led him to leave his job as a dairy farmer and go into the booze business with his best friend, Todd. The two are still at it today, and Clyde’s passion for Bordeaux has been a driving force in this business. Join him for a very special event—his first time in our Hollywood tasting bar!—where he’ll be pouring an exciting array of vintages with bottlings direct from his own cellar. Meet the man behind the magic and taste some magical wines while you’re at it! Friday, October 18th 5:30 to 7:00PM, $25. Please arrive promptly at 5:30, as we will taste together in a seminar style.

October 24: Courage + Stone Evening with Aisha Tyler @ Ever Bar in the Everly Hotel - Thursday October 24th 7:00-9:00pm
- Join us in welcoming actress/director Aisha Tyler (Archer, Criminal Minds, Whose Line, Friends) as she introduces her new line of bottled, ready to enjoy craft cocktails, Courage+Stone, at Ever Bar in Hollywood from 7-9 pm on October 24, 2019. Sip her classic Manhattan and Old Fashioned cocktails, along with small bite hors d'oeuvres. Meet and greet Aisha, who will be signing bottles, taking photos and telling us about her spirits line in the super cool, mid-century decor bar at the stylish Kimpton Everly Hotel in Hollywood. A long-time K&L customer and cocktail aficionado, Aisha created Courage+Stone because she wanted to enjoy a great cocktail after work, without having to mix and muddle behind the bar after a long day. She began to pre-batch and store her favorite libations, and a business idea was born. Aisha conceived, developed and executed the creation of these ready to drink cocktails from start to finish, partnering in 2015 with Allen Katz, at the splendid New York Distilling in Brooklyn, which distilled the small batch spirits with which the cocktails are made. Few cocktail lovers are more traveled, sophisticated and discerning than Ms. Tyler, who has created a product proving to be a must-try for all serious spirits fans.
Your ticket will include: Courage+Stone cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and two 200 ml size bottles of Courage+Stone (one Classic Manhattan and one Old Fashioned) to take home.
Ever Bar at Everly Hotel is located at 1800 Argyle Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90028 Valet parking available via the Yucca entrance, but we highly recommend utilizing a ride sharing service. No paper ticket is needed, simply bring your government issued photo ID for admittance
