Mohawk Bend bartender takes Best of LA award

We are so proud of bartender and bar manager Thom Sigsby on being named Best Bartender in LA Weekly’s Best of L.A. 2016!

The LA Weekly announcement reads:

Of all of the barkeeps we’ve encountered across the city, Sigsby is the one most likely to demonstrate his skills and scholarship humbly without ever leaving your glass empty — be it beer, wine or mixed drinks. I’ve seen him pull off cocktails perfectly paired to vegan dinners, unforced new twists on classic drinks and seasonally appropriate yet somehow unpretentious new concoctions, doing it all with class and conviviality whether his bar is deserted or five deep on three sides.

Swing by Mohawk Bend today and try one of Thom’s crafted cocktails.
